    First FMQ on Bento Box

    I hadn't been able to figure out how to quilt this Bento Box - I've only ever done QID, but since I had circles on the back I was stumped. Then, while on the board this weekend, I saw that a new quilter had posted her first FMQ project and it was great! I wish I could find her posting, because she really inspired me to just "do it" and I kept her in mind the entire time. I started out slowly with random circles around the dots, and then just went wild.

    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I thought I saw a spider,
    But it was just a Piece of yarn.
    It's dead yarn now.

    Looks like you are a natural. I would love to be able to do that but I do everything so tightly.

    That is so pretty (both the quilt top and the quilting)! I have gotten decent at meandering and a meandering kind of loopy thing. You are inspiring me to grab a practice piece and just let loose on it - to see what happens!

    Fantastic job! As someone that is just learning FMQ I love seeing what others are doing. Your decision to quilt around the circles turned out great!
