    This is my first attempt at FMQ (stippling) and I have to say.... I really suck at it! My stitches are so uneven. I need much more practice. It was kind of fun tho.

    As I write this I am doing fmq on my sewing machine for the first time on a real quilt. I'm like you. I need much more practice. We won't get good at it unless we do it! So I'll make a pact with you to keep on trying! Happy Quilting.

    I love FMQ and I recommend lots and lots of practice ... and no deprecation allowed!!
    Your quilt looks wonderful - and anyone who can make time to look critically has no life.

    I am so bad at FMQ I don't even suck at it. Sucking would be a step up. And I know that it would still not look a fraction as good as what you did. It's pretty and fun.

    It looks great. I can't believe that is your first try. You did great. I have not been able to make it look that nice.

    Thanks everyone! It feels so good to finish up a project. I worked today on another topper and it is almost done. Just have to hand sew the binding down and I'm done! Tonight I'm going to make a dust ruffle for my coming soon granddaughter's crib. Just found out she may be born in the next couple of weeks! EEEK! I've got so many things to sew for her!!! And need to finish her baby quilt too. :-D

    Don't feel bad, I've tried it and haven't had the nerve to go past the practice sandwich. At least you had the courage. :-D

    Okay, someone else was brave enough to show their stippling in a close up picture so here is mine. My question is... did I do the stippling too small? I had no idea how close together the stitching should be. It is a very small topper so I assumed the stippling should be smaller too.

    And yes, I see where I crossed over lines :( Darn it.

    Thanks!
