Underneath the Arches - fmq cameo 3

As much as I admire the skill of many free motion quilters, particularly long-arm quilters, to make each motif a clone of the previous one, I actually don't aim for total accuracy. I don't like it too look too machine like. I like the phrase 'consitantly inconsitant'. I also love playing around with size, scale and density.

Underneath the arches, one of my original designs also shows a technique I use a lot, namely building up rows to create and area of texture.  It is a 'there and back' design. The 'there' creates the arch and foot, and coming back I echo the arches.
