    You did a nice job on your first try - I just finished quilting a scrap quilt - figured it didn't cost me anything - it all came out of the closet - There were some places that I thought looked horrible but now that it is done I can't find those areas again. We will get better with practice.

    FMQ is a funny thing. A zillion things go wrong and you can't imagine how people do it, but on day it just clicks. Once it clicks you can do it. You can't really say what is different, but it works now when it didn't before.

    It's like riding bike. You can't really explain all the things a person's body has to do to do it.

    I want to thank each of you. It is folks like you who keep me going. I enjoyed this little quilt. I think it will be easier when I get my table set up better. I am going to get some styrofoam and build up around my machine, that will help out a lot. Thanks again for all the praise, It makes me want to try again.
    Life is SEW great!!!!!!

    It is 'much'. I tell my two grandsons who got my first two quilts that they are the best because I learned so much making them! And I truly believe that.

    However, in terms of true skill, they aren't great, but they are LOVED and fraying after 5 years. That's another thing that makes them the best!

    Looks good to me too. Your meandering is nice & even & they look alike. My first ones looked like a drunk was pushing a chain. Not nearly as pretty as yours. Great job.
