    You did great. The more you do the better you will get. Actually the more you do the easier it seems to you.

    Wow! I'm impressed and a bit jealous. My first attempt looked like someone quilting while sailing on rough seas, truly awful.

    I think you did great too! Love the stars. (Can I say this ..... I like the back of your quilt better than the front? I love the yellow thread on the orange fabric (at least, it looks orange on my computer!)

    Great job, hope you had fun doing it.

    looks good to me...I have been FMG'ing today and I finally bought gloves...what a difference. I could not believe it....totally worth buying gloves. I got some at Joanns and they were only 4.00 and than I had a coupon...so for about 2.00 I just made FMQ'ng 100 percent easier!!!its a breeze to do stimpling and to keep the curves rounded.

    do you have a machine that is sunk into a table or just are you working with the small plate or work surface (dont really know what its called ) of the machine. If its the smaller, I would recommend you make a little table to extend your work surface. I did that and it made it much easier to do smooth curves. You are doing good, and you will really enjoy the savings of not depending on LA service.
