    Just wanted to share

    I've hand quilted for a few years but only recently started to FMQ and oh boy do I love it. Just finished a couple of lap quilts for my nieces, the blue one was a simple D9p but the other one was all English hand pieced, I kind of like to have something to piece infront of the tv at night. This was my first attempt at FMQ other than having practised for weeks. I am most definitely hooked on it now.

    I like how you've set the different blocks, inspires me to see what I can do with all my "leftover" blocks from past projects, good job

    Lovely quilts! This may be the year I give FMQ a try. I've been afraid of it. Thanks for sharing your pictures. Very inspiring!

    Both are very pretty. I hope to do a large quilt in the near future. I have just begun quilting and these beautiful quilts are an inspiration.

    Both are just beautiful. I have practiced some free motion, but not ready to try on projects yet.

    Both are beautiful and good luck with your FMQ. I have been wanting to give it a try, but I don't know how to drop the feed dogs as my machine is not a new one. I have read about putting the card board under the needle with the hole in it, but I am afraid to try it for fear I will mess up the machine. Oh, maybe one day. Good luck with your FMQ, looks like your are on your way.

    I also enjoy FMQ, but can't do anything outside of meandering and swirls. I tried the feathers, but that didn't go well. Maybe I will give it another whirl soon. Your quilts are really pretty. I especially LOVE the second one....great job.

    Very innovative block placement. I especially like the second one and the blocks in it. I really admire anyone who hand-pieces.

    Very pretty quilts, like the mix of patterns and layout.
