FMQ Practice - Lost Data

I have embarked on free motion quilting (lovingly referred to as FMQ) on my home machine early in the year, thanks to Leah Day and her Free Motion Quilting Project blog. My nerves have calmed over time and the thought of trying out new stitches is not so scary anymore. Thanks for your help Leah!
This past week she taught the "Lost Data" stitch. This one works really well along a border or as a strip filler. There are the jagged lines and some of them are filled with a stippling type filler called zippling.
I have to admit that I have not practiced as much as I should but now that my machine is all set up in its own space, it will be much easier to get into doing more FMQ. Still, isn't it fun?!!!
