    Wow, I love your quilting! How did you learn to FMQ, and did you use just a normal sewing machine? I have a lot of unfinished quilt tops that I would love to quilt, just not too sure where to begin. Any ideas? :thumbup:

    I used a longarm that belongs to a friend of mine. As for how to begin, have a small piece of quilted scrap just to get a feel for the machine. A couple of minutes on that, and you're ready. As for how I did it, I just moved around on the fabric, sometimes making patterns sometimes not. You'll see that it's really not hard!

    My next thing to learn is someting besides meandering, although that did turn out nicely. :)
