What are you most proud of? the entire quilt. My FMQ could DEFINITELY use some work.. practice practice practice, thankfully it looks good on the front and it's going to a family member so I'm not so worried about it, but that is def something I gotta work on.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is easier than you think, so take the class and try it. I've already gathered a folder full of my own photos to turn into quilts, so excited!

It's an imagination flower! Beautiful. Keep practicing the FMQ-ing. I am doing the same & it keeps getting better. Thanks for sharing your quilt. Have a super day!

Thanks, I will. I have not taken a FMQ how-to class but I am enrolled in the free motion and more class, which is basically the different stitches NOT how to do it for beginners, so basically teaching myself.

Lovely - I've got this course, but haven't had time even to look at it yet. I really must do so soon - so much to do; so little time to do it! You've inspired me to try to find the time!

Thank you! Glad I inspired someone! I'm about to make my second one {as requested} then hopefully design my own from a photo.
