    Boy are you great at FMQ! I can't do it at all. And I'm soooo jealous of those of you who can.

    Stunning quilt. Wonderful FMQ.
    You can tell that you are comfortable
    behind your machine. So creative.
    Encourages some of us to get going with our own
    machines.
    Love the colors also. I could have it on my
    bed! :D

    I get so thrilled looking at all the pictures they are so beautiful = do any of you feel kind of depressed afterwards wishing that you could do as well. Guess it sounds silly but I wish I could do as good work as most of you.

    Thank you for your kind compliments. I started learning to FMQ about two years ago and this is my 5th large quilt I believe. When I first started, it took months of practice before I even got to the point where I felt like I could do well enough to use it on anything that anyone would see!

    I do a very minimal amount of marking when I do free-motion quilting. I use something called a "Chubby Crayon" by Miracle Chalk that works well on dark fabrics. It is white and makes a crayon-like mark that removes EASILY with a steam iron. (I bought it on-line somewhere... you can find places that carry it by doing a google search on it).

    I did mark approximate placement of the spines of the feathers on the setting triangles. I also lightly marked an "X" in the large blocks so I could get an idea of the placement for the swirled ribbons. On the nine-patch blocks where I also did swirled ribbons I didn't need to mark at all, just used the blocks as natural divisions to keep the placement sort of even--each of the eight outer blocks has a ribbon curl in it and they all come together at the center.

    I think one of the reasons I like FMQing so much is that it doesn't require much marking! I always try out designs on practice sandwiches before I try to stitch them on a quilt. That gives me a chance to "warm up" a little and make sure I like what a design looks like when I transfer it from my doodling to actual stitching. ;)
    Thank you so much for responding to my questions. Hmmm a "Chubby Crayon"? I'll have to look for that. Feel free to add more close ups of the quilt so we can see the block layout. It is such a lovely work of art!
