    I posted this small flower basket top a few weeks because I wasn't sure about the borders. With the encouragement of awesome board members, I left the borders as they were and used deep purple to bind it, and I am very pleased with the way it turned out! Thanks :)

    Also, for the first time, I actually used my darning foot and FMQ on a "real" quilt, I have ways to go still, but I was pretty proud of how it turned out. I really tried to outline the flowers in the borders, but I couldn't focus enough for that, LOL, so it is just a swirly line. :P

    Thanks all for looking!

    Yippee! I did it!!!

    Great work! It reminds me of spring. Keep looking at it if and when the snow flies!

    good job ! now quick find something else to FMQ while you are still in the groove. I keep 18" muslin sandwiches handy to practice & play around with FMQ.

    This is what I try to do, keep a practice sandwich handy, I find that it helps me to "warm up" before working on a real quilt. Thanks for the advice :P
