    My First Quilt to do all by myself

    Well, I know this isn't much but I did do it all myself, I am learning to FMQ. It isn't the best but it is mine. I just want to show all of you I am trying, lol.....I had a lot of trouble with the thread breaking, I think I was trying to go too fast. 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.

    You did an amazing job!!! I haven't had the courage to try FMQ....for your first quilt, I think you did a great job. Keep it up and thanks for sharing with us.

    Love the pattern, your fabric choices and your quilting. You did a really good job!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    It's lovely. FMQ scares me, but I know I'll have to dive in one day.

    Looks very nice. Have only tried once to FMQ and have been quilting for many years. Usually I hand quilt or else send it out.

    Looks great to me. Personally, I have a hard time doing a meander that looks good.

    It looks great to me, it, is sooo wonderful to make the whole quilt yourself, it gives you such a feeling of accomplishment when you are done, and you can say I did it myself.
