    Well I did my first free motion quiling on my frame. Boy did seem to take forever. Not bad but not that great. I still need to trim and then bind the quilt.

    Thanks, I really want to try free motion. I've been considering taking a class that runs this June, (I'm trying really hard to go one step at a time, one project at a time) and I think I might be ready by then. Did you have any help or scrap practice? Sorry for picking your brain, your quilt looks great, and I want to learn. :)
