    Ha ha, in my case it could mean "Fairly Mediocre Quilter". I just thought of that.

    Thanks Armylady, I picture a milk glass pitcher and tumblers on this one to serve that lemonade in.

    lol you guys crack me up! Was thinking of other things FMQ might stand for, and oh my, strange things came to mind!
    Just wanted to share with you my block #4 finished today for the Leah Day FMQ Machine Quilting Block Party. I so want to learn FMQ so that I can do more of my quilting myself. I think I am getting better. Getting the chance to quilt with rulers, do some applique, and this time I used one of the quilt stitches on my sewing machine in the border (the directions call for echo shells and I absolutely hate doing those!) So I took creative license!

    Another great block Sue. Practice, practice, practice. I just can't imagine what FMQ is going on in your mind.

    I just got interrupted by a visitor in my bedroom. I had been hearing a little noise like a light cord bumping a wall and thought the cat was under the bed side table, no such luck. I heard the fluttering wings before I could turn on the light. A beautiful Little Brown Bat was doing flybys around the room. Now this little one has the advantage over me, right? Well my batdrenalin kicked in and two minutes later she was tucked inside my sweatshirt which I threw into the air hoping to force a landing. It worked like a charm. I walked her outside, wished her well and let her fly free once more. I am officially a bat wrangler.

    So glad to know these little bats are making a slow comeback after the powdery nose fungus almost wiped them into extinction.
    peace

    Beautiful block Sue. Wonderful quilting. Ube a lot of people don't realize what great things bats can do for us. I know one thing is they eat bunches of nasty masiqtoes.I'm sure I mispelled that.lol Sorry to all the English teachers.

    About 5 minutes after I made the suggestion about June roses this popped up on my FB feed. There is a pdf on line for the free pattern if you are interested. I would link it but don't have the skill to send pdfs. If anyone can find and post it that would be cool. It went together real fast and, imho, looks cool.

    It would look better with more mottled fabrics but I don't have any of that style. I think what I did works okay.

    Glad to share my love of roses. The rosebud pattern went together fast. I would put on a go to list for presents when needed in a hurry.

    Here is what distracts me from my studio. This Beauty was admiring himself in the garage door window. He must have been there for at least an hour strutting his stuff.
