    I learned (at least for beginner) this is almost impossible. The bulk of the quilt was hard to maneuver especially in center and much frustration plus ripping out. I kept telling myself this is a practice quilt and for my own use so hung in there. :? To make matters worse, I decided to be "artistic" in center and do flowers, leaves, waves. When I stopped to adjust fabric, there are obvious bobbles. But DH assures me he likes it and it looks good. I like the colors and I find as I got closer to outer edges of quilt the FMQ got more fun. But probably won't attempt this again :roll:

    Looks wonderful to me!!
    I am in process of making a queen size that will come to the floor. I will quilt it on my home machine. I am thinking wonky flowers on top and curves and such on the sides. Nothing as fancy as your detailed flower. Wow!

    Great job, Shirley-love your colors! I only have the guts to try small wall quilts, runners, etc on my machine! Just still trying to get the hang of it-I usually hand-quilt and hand-applique!
