    This is a charity quilt, lap quilt, and my first try at FMQ on my brother cs6000i. It is far from being good, but I did alot of different patterns from the Leah Day website. Some were definitely easier than others. I have stippling down and can do some decent pebbling....but feathers need lots of work! I thought that since it was for kids in the hospital, I really didn't think they would care if my FMQ wasn't the greatest. The pattern allowed for lots of practice and now I have visions of larger projects...lol. But I do know ....practice, practice, practice!

    Great job! I recognize some of those designs from Leah Day's site. Good work. Does your machine have a stitch regulator?

    Good job, indeed! I like the idea of trying all the different patterns, it's such an easy way to practice and see if you like the different ones.

    Thanks for mentioning this site. I did a search and found it, what a great site. I'm going to take the time to check it out and watch some of her tutorials.
    Quilt looks lovely.

    Keep up the good work. You started at the top with Leah Day's designs. Nothing like jumping right in.

    You are adventuresome in your quilting. Wonderful. FMQ is my favorite thing to do. You are right, it is practice, practice, practice.
