What advice would you give someone starting this project? Jump In - as Wendy would say. Enjoy the ride, you will learn a great deal and be confident to try anything - at least once!

(sorry) P.S. I haven't had much luck with monofilament thread in my machine so I hope I can get it to work since I know Wendy uses it a lot...hope there are tips for that! Did you have any trouble?

Wendy covers the thread very well. It's all in the tension. My first piece which was the class project was a trial but it was a god learning curve. If you made a sample piece and experiment on that before you will find you can play around with your tension and that will help. I didn't do that - too impatient. But this one was better. Doing this course gave me my first attempt at the free motion foot and that was a huge learning experience - Oh boy! I feel very confident with it now. Just relax and have fun.

Wow! That's VERY impressive if that was your first go at fmq!!! I've quilted quite a few quilts with fmq so that part won't be new...but it still takes practice! Good for you! You really should be proud of that gorgeous quilt! I will follow the advice Wendy gives and do the practice piece. Thanks for the info...

Beautiful. I've for so many pics of my grandgirls at the beach, but am afraid to start one. You've inspired me to just jump in and try. Thanks
