    This was the first quilt that I've used FMQ on. I finished all of the meandering (stipling?) tonight. Binding is done too! Whew.

    What a great job you have done. The quilt is beautiful; I love that pattern. Love the back too, looks like it can be reversible.

    You did a great job on this! Pretty quilt! Was FMQ hard to learn? I so want to try, but have not been brave enough yet, maybe one day soon.

    Suzic46 - I was nervous to try FMQ on a big quilt but I practiced on several small sandwiches at first. I posted pics on here and got some great feedback on how to fix a few problems I was having. I kept getting scallops on my curves and with the feedback, I realized my tension was too tight and that I needed better thread.

    It wasn't nearly as hard as I had feared. I will definitely be doing more FMQ. :D

    Thank you all for the wonderful compliments!! I showed my DH but all he said was "yeah, very pretty" without really understanding how much work it took. He thinks meandering looks like brains.

    Simply wonderful job!!!. I tried for a couple hours yesterday. Got so bad at it the longer I tried. SOOOO I took the advice of someone and had a glass of wine to relax. Well I'm still nursing a hang over from the glasses of wine, and darn the free motion NEVER got better. I really struggle with it. Getting really good quilting with my walking foot even on turns. So I just cheat and use my decorative stitches.
    So you really should feel proud.
