I used this wonderful tutorial for an oak leaf and acorn to warm up.
It's available at: http://theinboxjaunt.com/2014/10/14/the-oak-leaf-and-acorn-free-motion-quilt-tutorial/
And the finished motif with an additional line of quilting around the leaves. I used a piece of my own hand-dyed cotton sateen, a wool batt, and a bit of decor-bond to stabilize the back. I think it would be nice as part of a bag.
