Free-motion practice

I finished this today - the colorful blocks were an experiment from a few years ago, to see if I could quick-piece kaleidoscope blocks. I had it in a box for a while and decided to use it to practice free motion quilting. I made the heart pattern on the colorful blocks first, then once I got "better" at it I filled in the plain pink blocks. I practiced free-motion stitch-in-the-ditch and then did the usual meander on the border. Lots of mistakes but good enough for my first try.
