    I am a 73 yr old lady (and I thought I had my BIG Girl Panties on) but I don't come near your FMQ. Tomorrow AM I am going to tackle the BIG JOB: I do fine on my practice piece but when I come to The Real Thing, I slow down and hence all the thread on the backing::: Hoping to get better and you have certainly helped my confidence::: Thank you

    Good job, I tried it for about 15 minutes and had enough. But your work is making me want to try again.

    Get those panties on and we'll do this together! :thumbup:

    You use a darning foot and you're the one moving the quilt under the needle. No feed dogs....just you. Getting your foot (machine speed) and hands to move at just the right speed to keep everything in line is what you're trying to do. It's a lot of fun but it took me forever it seemed to take the plunge and I'm so happy to have finally done it. This is a great place to learn all sorts of techniques and any question you have will be answered. The people on this board are wonderful and I could have never done this without them. Have fun and welcome aboard!! :D

    Let me tell you that I've been ready to do this for months now but my mind wasn't. LOL!! When I put the quilt under that needle I was sweating bullets. The first thing that ran through my mind was the time it took to piece the top, that it was going to my son and what would I do if I messed it up beyond repair. Well....if that would have happened I'd have gotten out the good ole seam ripper and cleaned it up. Jump in and go for it! It is sooooooooo much fun that my hubby hasn't seen me in days, my 4 legged babies wonder where I've gone and my son thinks he's an orphan.....because I'm quilting. :thumbup: :lol:
