Fabulous idea, I too need to learn FMQ, did you draw design on first? It is so consistent ?

11/17/2012 Flag

No, I didn't draw the design on first, it's done freehand.

Your stitches are just amazing! I can only hope to one day master FMQ as you have done, once I drop the feed dog all heck breaks loose with my stitch size. I have done some with dogs up, it is not as detailed but my stitches are consistent. I have not practiced that much because I get disappointed but I have a feeling this is something that may take a lot of practice to even become OK at it, am I right?

At first I did FMQ with feed dogs down but now I leave them up and set stitch length to zero. Makes more sense. I don't practice that much, I piece and piece and piece and hardly do FMQ. First time FMQ was 2 years ago. I took a class because I didn't know how and what to do. This is the second class on FMQ I'm taking and I learned a lot from Leah. And yes, with practice you will get better. Just use small pieces like placemats, mug rugs or pot holders for practicing.
