    Looks like you did a great job - better than my FMQ. Keep up the good work.

    You did a GREAT job. Mine does not look that good. Good for you. A little tip I learned from a friend. Practice on a whole cloth quilt that you whip up out of say muslin. Then when you are done with it you can requilt over it in different colored thread. Works for me.

    Neat quilt! Great job on FMQ! My quilting is still pretty 'iffy'. (Meaning....IF you stand back far enough, it's okay!)

Speed is my problem, always trying to get er done, lol...This is small -37x37 but it is a start. Not sure I can handle a larg one. I am going to keep practicing. I know that is what it takes. Ok, hope all has a wonderful day. Happy Quilting to you all.
    If thread keeps breaking, check the bobbin thread tension. If thread does not pull out smoothly without any jerks, it is too tight! I had this happen on my Grandquilter machine and watched a guy on youtube named Jamie Linn (I think) did what he said and now it works just great!

    It looks good on the front; it looks good on the back. Even the binding looks good. Good+Good+Good=GREAT! Way to go! :-)

    I think your quilt is very good. Your corners and seams look good on your piecing, the FMQ looks pretty consistent and not overly quilted and your binding lies flat. I think you should be proud of yourself and your quilt. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Love your dark 'special' squares and how you picked up the colors from them for your other squares. I have been quilting for 30 years and still do not have the courage to attempt FMQ. I think that the lack of funds to have a LAQ do my quilts will drive me to learn.
