    MY FIRST FMQ completed

    Hi there. i am being very brave and showing my first FMQ on a jelly roll race quilt top. i praticed on a few fat quarters at first and then took the plunge, it has 3 different designs, and meander, a wandring clover i think it is called and mostly a stipple of a type. i have lots of flaws and eye lashes on the curves but i am proud of my first attempt. I want to thank everyone that helped me figure out all my issues with my machine and stiching. i learned alot from every one and from the Cratsy leah day class.

    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    It looks great! I was nowhere near actual designs on my first attempt (or 100th attempt for that matter). You will be an expert in no time.

    Looks very nice Patti P. Only you see the eyelashes and the stop start places. The next one will be better.

    I'm in the process of learning FMQ as well, and am having quite a problem as I tend to be quite perfectionistic. It's a new fun skill to learn. You look like you have learned very well.

    It loves lovely and very snuggle. No eyelashes anywhere keep them quiet.
    Finished is better than a UFO
