Before you know it, your curves will be smoother, stitches more consistent. I found at the beginning I did best at loops and swirls. So I perfected those before I tried to master other designs. It was at least a good year until I was able to do a decent stipple. Now I am doing feathers...thanks to Sally Terry's book Hooked on Feathers.

    Save one of your early practice sandwiches. I recently came across one I did a few years ago. It was interesting to see how far I've come since then!
    Thank you so much, katier, for those nice tips! Yes, loops and swirls are best to master first and hope others are inspired and will try it too!! It's a piece of cake really! I got carried away and did 3/4 of the quilt the 1st night. Need to slow down some and focus, but practice makes perfect!! C'mon everyone and give it a try!! You know who you are!! I took all the FMQ stitches out of the mini twice and left the 3rd try in as it looks nicer than the pic of the 1st try. It does take some getting used to!! Be patient and it will work out great, but you have to try first!!

    Thanks everyone so much for your nice compliments!! They are appreciated!!

    Congrats on the fmq. Quilting is my favorite part of doing a quilt. I love your colors and am really taken with the back.

    Great quilts! I love that you didn't do much fussy cutting on the triangles in the first quilt. I have TONS of triangles of novelty fabric and this gave me a great idea for how to use them. Thanks for sharing!!
