    Doggy Bandanas! Olive here doesn't mind at all if it's not perfect. :D She just likes being told how pretty she looks!

    I've been trying to come up with ideas on my own so I don't have to throw out my Free Motion Quilting practice pieces, but be able to use them instead.
    I'm hoping you all will post ideas for small projects to practice FMQ on that don't have to turn out perfect.

    I would like to see FMQ ideas as well I'd prefer to learn on my own how to do it rather than pay my LSQ people to do it.

    Is this something that there is already a thread on in the instruction/tutorial section?

    BuzzinBumble's idea is great, my very first FMQ was on a tote, about 5 years ago and I still use it as it isn't perfect but it's mine and useful. People stay "practise, practise, practise" for FMQ my opinion is to start on smaller items, like that cutest bandanna or a tote and go from there :idea: Also check out Leah Day's site, she has the most fab free videos and tips: http://www.daystyledesigns.com/articles.htm

    I practice on sandwiches adding fabric to each side and continuing to practice. When I get the groove I FMQ a table runner and /or a charity lap quilt for the veterans hospital or other charity.
