Thanks for those ideas. I just remembered I have some placemats that I can practice on!

What a great way to frame that panel, and I really like your fabric selections. I'm also very new to fmq so can't really offer much help there, but wanted to say welcome to the forum!

Hi Gemm - Thanks for the encouragement but I canít really take credit. I saw a kit that looked like this, but it was all paper piecing, which I donít have the patience for. So I just bought the coordinating fabrics and figured out a much simpler design for the edging. I must admit, I was pretty surprised when it all worked out!

If your skill level will support it, Ithink trees would be a fun quilting design on this quilt.

if I can figure out how to post a picture, Iíd love to pick your collective brains as to how to FMQ quilt my latest quilt, a gift for my 2-year-old grandson. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated,
Perfect for a little guy. He will love it no matter how you quit it.

I love this quilt and I'm sure your grandson will treasure it. I would outline the bears and then do stippling on the rest of the quilt. That will build your confidence with FMQ.

My favorite fmq pattern on a detailed quilt is a simple loop de loop. I cross over lines like a wild bee flying in the air. It's impossible to get trapped into a corner, I can just swoop my way out. I think a random plattern places emphasis on the fabrics. Love the bear panel.
