    I recently posted a thread asking for suggestions for quilting a quilt I was working on for my best friend. Many of you suggested doing a stipple with FMQ, so that's what I did. I was nervous since I've never done FMQ before, but I think it turned out okay. What do you think? I hope she likes it!

    I pieced the back, and I like it almost as much as the front!

    You did a wonderful job, who would know that it's your first time.
    I do have a question for you.
    How did you do the label, with pen or marker?
    I love it.
