    Strips...everywhere - my first FMQ

    This is my second large quilt and my first FMQ - I am hooked on free motion quilting. It is sooo much fun. I do not have a frame or a long arm, just a regular sewing machine but it was still a blast. I crossed lines once or twice (nobody will ever see it) but all in all I am very happy with it. All I need to do is wash it and put it in the dryer to get that crincle look I really like. I saw a tutorial for this quilt on this board, when I signed up. It was posted by one of the members - Samelia's Mum - thank you!

    I love the way it turned out...Congrats on a good job for your first FMQ. No one will notice the crossed lines, and besides, who cares???

    Oh how pretty! I'm going to bookmark this for two reasons: I love your use of jelly rolls and the pops of color, and you give me courage to try fmq an entire quilt too. (I've just been doing small accent sections)
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Very pretty and I too love FMQ, mostly how I quilt my quilts. I use my regular sewing machines w/9" throat. I have done all the way up to larger than a queen.

    Moo-love it!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
