    I have been looking at everyone quits for the last few months but never posted one of mine. I started quilting this last October and have found myself total addicted. I have been trying to do a new type every time to learn something new. I have made 12 quilt now and have four in the works. My FMQ is getting much better. I知 doing anything 75 inches and under myself and sending anything bigger to a local long arm quilter.
    I知 posting photos of three of my quilts all FMQ quilted by me.

    Beautiful work!!! I love them all, but that teapot one is my fave. How long did it take you to master FMQ? Mine is terrible.

    I spent 16 hours quilting the Tea Pot quilt and i did it in two days because i needed to bring the quilt to Chicago with me for my MIL and doing so much in such a short time brought my skill level way up. I did flowers and leaves all over that quilt. I don't have any close ups of the quilting on this computer but i will post some latter of it. I was very happy with the quilting. I alway have a little trubble with the center of one's this big (about 76 inches wide) so much material to manage.

    You really got hooked, didn't you? You sure have some nice quilts done here and I admire that you are doing all that quilting. I have yet to get that FMQ down good enough to try doing a quilt of any size! And I have been making quilts for about 20 years now! I can do SID on smaller size but would love to be able to do FMQ. Maybe someday! You keep on quilting, girl. Waiting to see another one from you!

    Your quilts are very beautiful. I really like the pastels. The teapot quilt and baby quilt are simply adorable.
