    Here is a table runner (Moda Bakeshop pattern) I just finished that I tried out FMQ for the first time on. I quilted it last week on my little Brother machine before I knew I was getting a new machine this week. I would have waited if I knew. I did get to put the binding on with my new Bernina though. Wow, what a world of difference in those two machines. (Which I hope would be the case considering the price difference between them!) I still have a lot of improvement to do with my piecing, and of course with my FMQ, but gotta start somewhere!

    Up close of stitches, look away if it hurts to much to stare at it! LoL

    Just had to show off the pretty stitches in red that my Bernina made.

    Your FMQ looks wonderful! I still haven't gotten up the courage to try it. I've made little sandwiches to practice on, but haven't made the time yet to work on them.

    I made up half a dozen sandwiches or so and practiced on those before jumping in on this runner. My first sandwich looked like my sewing machine had become possessed. LoL I had some unattractive stitches here and there on the runner but overall it turned out better than I thought it would. I'd have to say you should just go ahead and give it a try. I bet you'll get the hang of it quickly. Here's to us both getting better at it!
