Thanks everyone for all the fmq suggestions. I look at your quilts and assume you just sit down and quilt and they turn out so beautifully. I realize now that you all have practiced and had lots of patience. I am going to try all your hints (maybe even drugs and alcohol-lol) and hopefully I'll have something worth showing soon. I always hand quilted but I have too many ideas floating in my head to take that much time with each project. Thank you, my friends.
