When searching for a quilting design for your next quilt, it helps to look at FMQ pictures for ideas. All of these FMQ pictures ARE FROM THIS BLOG. For more ideas, go to my pinterest and look for the FMQ board. I haven't had time to link each picture to the blog post. If you want the link, just leave me a comment.
To "stitch in the ditch" means to stitch in the seam on the fabric which is lower.
When you quilt around your figures on the front, look what you get on the back !!!
I quilted around the whirley gigs, including the seams inside, and stippled all the white.
I found this design on Day Style Designs. She has lots of fun designs and video tips for FMQ. I found it helped to have a blown up picture of the design on my computer next to my machine to refer to.

I love the idea of a quote on the back of your quilt. Carrie of Miss Rosie Quilts taught me that.
I guess this isn't technically "free motion", but it took so dang long, I've got to put it in.
I had to create my own stencil. I'd like to try this again some time. I'll use a pounce pad.
What a great idea for a sewing machine cover. Great practice too!
