You're kidding! My first one didn't look anything like this. :) Fabulous!

Thank you! I have to admit - I got a little obsessive about the FMQ in this class - lots of practice!

Thanks so much! This was my first serious class on free motion quilting. I have since taken a bunch of Craftsy classes - always looking to improve or get new ideas.

Wow, our journey into quilting is amazingly similar! I learned to sew at age 6 on my mom's Singer treadle machine, then she helped me make doll clothes. My mom owned a fabric/needleworks shop in the 70s-80s, where I picked up many new project ideas. I started quilting in about 1990, and started learning machine quilting about 2 years ago. Oh, and we are Westie people too!! We have owned, or rather were owned by, 8 of the little sweethearts.

Wow! You're right that we have had similar quilting journeys! Westies are such terriers - I'm pretty sure Wallace has me exactly where he wants me - at his total beck and call.
