    I really appreciate all the ideas and advice I get here. I am getting better at free motion quilting and I tried my first binding pulled to the front and top stitch. I would not have done either until I found this website and reading your posts.
    Here are two autumn projects I had sitting in pieces and just finished. My sister does the cross-stitch and I couldn't think of what to do with it until I thought "pumpkin". The colors are off in the picture, but you get the idea.

    Very nice. And I'm impressed with your FMQ feathers. I can't do them yet.

    I haven't tried feathers yet, looking good! I like the striped fabric in the patchwork as it gives a different look to the overall design.

    Wonderful, the more fmq you do the more confidence you will gain.

    I also put my binding on the back and roll it over to the front but I use a very small zig zag. It shows up less it is on the very edge and you don't get that little lip between the edge and the straight stitch that flips up so again it looks a little better. I use a width 1 or 1.5.
