What are you most proud of? I love trying new techniques! I am so glad I enrolled in this class.

Dena_LivinH20 on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try new techniques and quilting designs on small projects to work out the creative kinks. Next time, I will plan better and have the feathers land on the solid blocks.

Feathers???not walking foot feathers surely?? I wish I could do that? but FMQ is a stitch too far for me...Congratulations

Oh, :-), so sorry for the confusion. The feathers are free motion. Before I can write a novel, I must learn how to write a sentence and before that words and before that the alphabet. YOU can DO FMQ. I learned some FMQ basics with Patsy Thompson. She has free tutorials on her website. She is now a Craftsy teacher! She is teaching, you guess it, feathers. :-)

YOU can DO FMQ. I'm afraid you are sadly wrong there. I tried once and loathed it with a passion I thought was merely reserved for the bin-men who insist on waking me up at 6 am every Friday!!! hahaha I won't go into it here, as this is your thread and should remain, deservedly fixed in the Praise lane. They are beautiful!

:-( I am sorry to hear it.... FMQ was VERY hard for me in the beginning. All I could do for a year was bad stippling, but I kept at it mainly because I could not afford long arm services. I finally decided I need help...Patsy Thompson, Leah Day, Cindy Needham, and more.. I hope the bad memory of you first attempt fades and you will give it another try one day. :-) Thank you!

This is absolutely wonderful!!! I like the back the best because it showcases your stitches so beautifully. I agree, free motion is very difficult, you just have to keep going and it gets a little better with every project.

Thank you! It is fun to experiment. We learn so much when we do. Thanks for taking time to comment!

You give me hope!

Hi Cathy! :-) Isn't great how we can encourage one another as we share our projects?

What a wonderful conversation! I've seen your projects before. You are very talented. I agree whole heartedly on learning FMQ a. I love it now. I took all of Leah Day's, Cindy Needham, Angela Walter's and many other classes on Craftsy. I know I have improved. I've learned a lot and enjoy it tremendously. I will take this one as well.

Hi Carman, Thank you! :-) I imagine we are in some of the same classes.
