    My first try at FMQ!

    This is my first try at FMQ!!! We won't look at the back I tried to buy a walking foot for my old Husqvarna but none of the 4 that my "local" (1.5 hours away) dealer had worked. So I just went with this stippling foot. I usually hand quilt but did enjoy this!

    Well done! This proves that sometimes you just have to 'go for it'. I know some people find it terrifying (I find it really relaxing, lol) and your backs will improve the more you do. Great effort.

    It looks better than when I tried it!
