    I like the rail fence pattern and have made several. FMQ looks fine to me. I do that on all my quilts, I love the look and I love doing it.
    Beautiful quilt.

    It came out very nice!! Don't you just get frustrated thinking, "Oh, I've got this!" and then it just doesn't go as planned? Great job.

    WOW!! How wrong was I?!?!?!? And this was a smaller quilt, too! It was so much trouble, I gave up on the FMQ after getting through the middle and just did straight lines in the border.

    Clearly, I am so NOT good at this now. Oh well, just means I get to keep practising, right!?!?
    Nice work! Love both front and back!
    Love 4 stchen

    I think FMQ is like cooking...some days, you're really On! and other days....meh. But it does get better with practice, I hope.
    Great quilt and I like the backing very much.

    Don't be so hard on yourself. Your quilt is very pretty. I think some quilts that I quilt go much better than others. Don't know if it is my mood or what but they are all different. Anyways great job on your newest quilt. I'm sure it is loved & appreciated very much
