    Practicing my FMQ - tabletopper

    I just finished this table topper (actually its a lapquilt - but fits perfect on my large coffee table) - I made myself FMQ without taking any of the quilting out. Normally, I would be beating myself up over the quilting - I really want to do better and I know this is the only way. Now that I am done - you really don't notice all the flaws - so I am learning and part of that is acceptance. So here it is:

    Looks fine to me!!! I am in the middle of teaching myself to machine quilt and I do a lot of tearing out. When the project is finished, you are right, the flaws do not show up. In all realty the flaws do not show to anyone but you. That is unless you send them to the "Quilt Police" (and no one does that LOL). Your work is beautiful and will only get better....Hang in there

    Very Nice, I too, have to just jump in and "do it." Would love to have a LA do my stuff, but I don't ever want to wait to see the complete finished project. You did great.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!

    And you will become better and better the more you do. Your quilting looks great You also have to remember we look at things as a whole when we looks at someone's quilt. That individual little wiggle you didn't like, we don't even see. I love the colors in your quilt too
