OK...I have the proper foot now, my practice sandwich, my doodles are practiced, and I've done about every procrastination thing that I could. So now I'm going to set up my machine and get at it....hum....I see a little dust on the coffee table....no... the dust will always wait...OK...here I go! TTYL

Have fun, relax, you will go great. A lot of the ladies will put on some music and sew to the beat of the music (rapp wouldn't work) Enjoy the process. I am talking to you as much as to myself!! :)

Go for it. You'll love it. I did the same thing. Once I finally did my first FM I wondered why it took me so long to do the first one.

See!!! You did great. Keep having fun. The quilting part ( especially FM ) is my favorite part of quilting.
