    Here's my first try at FMQ. I need lots of practice but I really enjoyed it. I LOVE my new sewing machine.

    You did great! It can be hard for some people to get going, but it's worth the persistance! I'm working on one now that will be mainly FMQ. I found it so "safe" to stitch in the ditch! I'm bored with that though and am enjoying the FMQ myself!

    You did an incredible job!!! I just ordered a new bobin case for my Janome that is supposed to help with FMQ. Supposedly it helps with the tension. I can't wait for it to come in the mail and give it a try.

    I agree, it's really wonderful. What a simple quilt design, hearts with shadowing, but it's so striking.
