Compass Wholeclothe

What are you most proud of? That I finished the Quilt and really made all of that FMQ. I learned a lot and also to start and stop the way Cindy teaches. What advice would you give someone starting this project? To go with the process and rely on your feeling. You don't necessary have to make your mind up about the whole design when you starts quilting.

Q&A with BabsK

Pam NZ asked:
WOW! Well done, just love how you've designed and FMQ'd this. No stopping you now!
BabsK answered:
Thanks! :)
Karine_enjoying asked:
I am very impressed by what you created. Especially because I am fairly new to freee motion quilting and find it difficult. but Ii will continue and overcome my frustration. How long have you been free motion quiltiing?
BabsK answered:
two years perhaps, but very infrequently. I am not so productive and I do not exercise very often. I'm glad that no one gets close enough to inspect the stitches. But the mist importen thing is that's fun and I'm krattning.
