    Here are some pics of the queen sized quilt I just finished for my DGD for Christmas.

    I took a few pictures of my FMQing process along the way that I'd like to share with you, so here goes:

    (Sorry the pics aren't the best quality; I took them with my cell phone...)

    This quilt was totally FMQ'd on my Juki

    Now for some details on my process... First I sketch the designs on paper....

    Then I mark a guideline for the spine of the design (using an appropriately sized round object)...

    Then I stitch the design along the marked spine. As you can see, it differs a bit from the orignal sketch on paper.
