What are you most proud of? This is my first FMQ project, and I really like it! :) I started with small fabric scraps of all sizes and forms, just to get the hang of it. Also, having everything at the same level is crucial. I don't have a table on which my machine can "sit" at a lower level than the table itself, so I took a bunch of big, fat books and set them around the machine, hehehe... It helped a lot!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't give up! It looks very complicated and might feel overwhelming at first, but if you start small, it's easier to get the hang of it.
