    That is exactly how I practiced fmq. Potholders are useful and the perfect size to practice moving in many directions. I made loads of them one year and gave them away at Christmas. I traced designs independent of the fabric design and on some I followed around the design on the fabric. You will look back on this practice fondly. Placemats is another great place to practice.

    I looked at the caption and picture, before reading your post . . . and although I don't care for those fabrics, I couldn't find anything bad about it. As for your FMQing, it's not bad at all!

    I'm almost afraid to even try it!

    By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out.

    Look's a lot better than my first try. Keep at it and you will master it in no time.

    Oh, I know just how you feel. I so want to learn to FMQ, but it always looks like a mess when I try...but as so many of you have said, "keep practicing" and I am doing that. I have many pot holders with less even passable FMQ, but I am determined. Keep trying and it will get better and better...that's what I keep telling myself.
