    I am by no means a professional. For months I have been faithfully looking at everyone's quilts on here and being inspired by all of them. I'm still working on FMQ but will never be half as good as Charisma. I have a new Pfaff Expression 2.0 and I absolutely love it. I started out making a "trial" quilt to see what I could do with the new machine. When I was done, I found that I liked it so much it now hangs on the wall. It's my first quilt with my new machine, the first time I basted with 505 adhesive spray, my first attempt at FMQ (although very little), the first time using varigated thread and my first time using a machine decorative stitch on the border. All of these were from inspirations on this site. So basically, we all made this quilt together. Thanks for all of your ideas. :lol:

    Very nice! I absolutely love the vine in the border. I'm going to have to remember to start using my fancy stitches too.

    I love the way you took advantage of your machine's stitches in the border. That was a gorgeous addition to your wonderful quilt

    The saying goes: There is always a first time for every thing. Congratulations in your acomplishment. I also have a new Pfaff Expression 2.0 and 2 Pfaff 1471. I love all of them.
