    FMQ and 10 minute block pictures

    I started a thread a bit back about challenging yourself to do some FMQ - get some inspiration from this forum and Leah Day's site. The idea was to create a 10 minute block piece and FMQ in the centers - easy for newbies and quick. Jeanne from Oregon wanted to try this as well so we have been emailing back and forth.

    I completed a small project and thought I would share the pictures.

    Very inspirational! I love the bowtie effect of your blocks! Looks great and your floral designs add just the right touch!

    I love the Leah Day classes. I have learned so much. I am working on the wholecloth class now. I made a large quilt a few months ago and was going to send it out to have quilted. I think I am ready to take the plunge and do it myself. Everyone should check out her website she is a very talented young lady. You did a beautiful job.

    I like the 10 minute block idea for trying the FMQ patterns. The whole project is a nice practice piece, with a good ending!
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    Very good. If I could do that, I would be doing larger size quilts. I love the pattern you chose for the solid blocks . You did a nice job.

    I told Jeanne from Oregon the same thing - having the right machine makes a huge difference. I quilted on my Bernina but it was always a struggle. My Quilter's Pro is a champ and is very forgiving (no stitch regulator!). ANYONE can do FMQ!!! Just start small, then work your way into larger pieces. I have done many up to full size (I don't do Queen size - I don't have room) with no problem at all as long as I go in small sections.

    Nice practice sampler! I am enjoying Leah Day's lessons on FMQ. Leah certainly helps build that confidence I seem to lack to just go and do it.

    I keep hearing about this 10 minute block & now I have to go look it up. I wonder if there's a tutorial here on the board? Or there's always Google, I guess...
