    Thanks, newbee!! Yes, I do NO fussy cutting at all ever!! It's best to let it fall naturally wherever the cut may be (IMHO)!! Looks natural then! Glad you got some ideas for this!! We look forward to seeing your post soon!!

    Great job! I haven't had the nerve to try and fmq any of mine yet. Good for you. Now it will be onward and upward and it seems to me you're well on your way!

    Oh You did GREAT for your first time. Isn't it a hoot to fmq? I love the whole process myself. Have some fun with the next one too scraplover. I really think the more you relax and have fun, the more it becomes natural to you.

    Woo Hoo for your bravery!

    I think this pattern style works really great with the fabrics you have. I also love the border stripes, really looks nice. The fmq is great fun isn't it? Great job.

    Thanks, sewbeadit!! FMQ sure is fun! I was so excited I had 3/4 of the quilt done the first night trying! Here's the label I forgot to show. It's a leftover block from Scrappy Greek Key; no want, no waste!

    Very nice - you did a god job on your FMQing. I'm just learning also - did a quilt for my grandson and now that it is done I can't find the major mistakes - and he loves it.

    What a fun quilt, n2! Every once in a while I have to go stalking to see what others are up to as I miss so many new threads. Now onto your next thread G
