    beginner FMQ

    Following the sage, and humorous, advice I have found on this baord, I have been making small FMQ samples to practice. It has helped my practice piecing, fabric choice and FMQ.

    I purchased some heat resistent backing, and have been making trivets. I am thinking of giving this one to my boss. As her secretary I handle all of her mail, and this one tickles me.

    When I am perfect, I will write a book and everyone can be perfect too. Until then I will just have to be gracious in face of imperfection, and ask the same of everyone else for my imperfections.

    What a nice trivet and boss appropriate. She could use it as a (big) mug rug for her desk!

    Good plan, and good work!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Very cute idea! Thanks for the idea. I bought a couple of bargain ironing board covers that I did not like....plan to use them for trivets or hot pads. They will be good for your type of project!
