    I have to admit that I was very afraid to try the FMQ...but others had said with my Horizon it was as easy as it can be. I had tried and tried years ago with my faithful standby Pfaff, but the feed dogs wouldn't go down and I didn't know how to do it. I was just one frustrated person. So, when it was time to buy a "better" (meaning more bells and whistles since my Pfaff still sews like a dream) machine, I looked for one that I could buy where the feed dogs went down easily. I am now a believer--not yet an experienced one, but it really wasn't that hard and my machine sewed just fine as FMQ or piecing. I was afraid going back and forth would be difficult (sewing the seams and FMQ). It wasn't a problem. I just had to change the feet out.

    I definitely want to do more applique as well. We have a visitor coming in two days so I asked him to bring me two rolls of Heat n Bond from Walmart. Hopefully he will bring the right stuff. I used up most of a roll (I only brought one back to Poland with me) on this one quilt.

    I've seen many flip flops quilts, but yours is the best..
    The colors, the placement all fits in so well.

    I think it turned out great! Love the flip flops!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Fun! I'd love to have that many pairs of flip flops. I'll bet it was a blast choosing the fabrics. Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    They look like the shoes beside my front door. (We live in Europe and here you always take off your shoes at the door--but in my family, they don't always end up exactly side by side!)

    Wow you did a great job. I've put off trying FMQ because I don't have the time right now to practice but you may have pushed me to give it a try and see what happens.
