My mom does all her quilts using the free motion presser foot on her Bernina, and your work looks almost as good, and she's been doing it for years! Though actually, it's really easy once you get the hang of it. You put a lot of cool detail into it, I can see where you were trying out different patterns. It looks really good! I also like the colors on the top, though I'm not so fond of the grey underside. Ranting aside, you did wonderfully! Keep up the good work!

Thanks!  You are all so sweet!  It's giving me courage to attack the next one...

And the back is a white muslin just like the front.  For some reason it's kind of shadowy in that picture.
