First of all, I've got to get myself in gear here and get sewing. I do have an excuse why I haven't but anyway.......
It seems a lot a people have a problem doing FMQ'ing. For some reason I never did. I'm a 'lefty' but do a lot of things right handed so maybe that's why FMQ'ing comes easier to me...
Anyway, someone posted in the tips area about simply drawing a line on your quilt and then do squiggle FMQ'ing around that line. That process seems to help a lot of people.
I just read on the net this entry: http://www.longarmquiltingshow.com/e...uzanne-earley/ which outlines Suzanne Earley's technique of stitching a single meandering line which stabilizes the quilt and then going back to add flourishes to that line. Brilliant! Makes a lot of sense to me and hopefully will help others expand their FMQ'ing!
Suzanne's written two books on her method, both are out of print, but she has combined them and made the combined info available for purchase in pdf file format on her site: http://www.suzanneearley.net/
Hope this info helps someone.
