As some of you know, I have been fighting a battle with my sewing machine while making this quilt for my DF who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. With the help on my Singer Repairman I was able to finish sewing and FMQ the quilt. The small 2" blocks are stitched in the ditch and the larger 12" blocks are a FM swirl. This is not my forte but I am learning as I go. Because the water has permanently damaged the ability for to use the embroidery portion of this machine, MDH has encouraged me to get a Brother 1250 which I should be picking up today! :lol: TY Mike... When I get it home, I hope to make a label for the back which is plain white muslin.

60 x 60

the example of the FMQ
