    i have bee wanting yo try FMQ with my Bernina vintage. So today I attached the "darning foot". It cost me as much as the used machine. I had pieced a doll quilt for 2 yr old GD and remembered the suggestion to practice on small things. IDID IT. The foot went on easily. I surprised myself how fun it is!! It is now the ugliest thing I ever did but the doll won't care!! I have a long way to go in getting my stitches even and pattern neat.

    Can't wait to do another small project. Thanks everyone for you ideas and tips..Keep them coming

    Congrats. I'm so glad you decided to try FMQ. I fell in love with it the first time I tried it. Keep working at it and it will just get better and better.

    I am still working on learning FMQ with my old friend Bernina. I read that even if you spend 10 minutes a day working on it, it helps you improve. Problem is that I don't want to quit once I start! It is surprising how much fun I have doing it.

    Yay for you!!! If you are satisfied with your results, then move on. You go girl! So many people get set in a quandry; is this good enough? Hell yes! Just do it. Big hint here; I never practiced on anything. To most, I'm a rebel; to myself I am me. Get with the program; you CAN do it. We are not talking about brain surgery here.
