    After I finished piecing my son's quilt, who is a HUGE Tennessee Volunteers football fan....hence the orange and white, I'd told myself to practice, practice fmq and then jump in. Got cold feet this morning and decided to stitch in the ditch. That looked horrible so put on my big girl panties and went to work trying fmq. I am so excited now because NO LOOPS on the back and stitches aren't way off from being the same size. Still having some problems with starting when I've stopped and have those dreaded points but I'll get there. WOOHOO!!! Wanted to show a couple pictures and to say thanks to everyone who helped me. :-D :thumbup:

    And guess what? Once it is done, you will be the only one that sees those points. :)
