I have been practicing my FMQ for a couple of weeks now and have been improving. When I first started I thought there was no way I would ever get the hang of it but practice is making all the difference. Anyway, I had noticed in some posts that people were talking about not dropping the feed dogs. So, I gave it a try, and WOW! I can't believe how much easier it is for me. I seem to have much more control and feel like I am ready to stipple a real quilt!
So I have to wonder if I have really improved that much or if dropping the feed dogs made all the difference. Either way I am thrilled to be FMQing for real!!! :-D
