Thank you so much! First time ever tackling a lap quilt with so many FMQ designs (20). I always just did a meandering stitch.

Thank you so much! It was a real learning curve & very tedious at times. Glad I stuck with it. I think it would be more do-able if you worked the procedure on a small quilt or blocks. Dealing with a lap quilt causes moving issues trying to keep a rhythm. :-)

I have never done the piece as you go method, would have to retrain my brain, but I know what you mean about the whole quilt and moving issues. I saw all of the pictures on this quilt. I saw some designs that I might use in my next quilt. I love all the designs, and just wandering how long did it take you?

Tammie , I started to work on the FMQ in January right after the holidays. It took quite a while maybe 4 days to just Stitch in the Ditch around all the blocks. Then most days I'd tackle 1 block. For me, most took a long time and I'd spend an afternoon and/or an evening just to complete 1block. Seemed like each day was for 1 thing if not a block - it was sashing, the big border & last the binding. Glad to move on to this years 2013 BOM & Civil War. Amy already started with paper piecing this month - boo!
