Thanks. I am fairly new to quilting and after struggling with quilting a big quilt on a little machine; this is the way to go for me!
This looks lovely! I love the variegated thread you are using. I am thinking of quilting as I go, as I also have a regular sized machine, and being a newbie, feel that I will struggle trying to fit a large quilt.
Thank you. I'm also taking Ann Peterson's class Big Project's on Little Machines. It's been great. Until I get better at FMQ, breaking the quilt into pieces is the way to go. I made a larger quilt recently and ripped out the quilting twice and gave up on FQM and used my walking foot.

Great quilt work. Very inspirational
Love how you finished this! It's amazing what a difference quilting can make.
Thanks. I agree; lots of negative space on this block.
I like how you have quilted and finished each block. Are they quilted separately and then joined or are they quilted in separte quilts or are they quilted as one quilt? I hope you don't mind me asking.
I am quilting each block separately and then will join them with sashing. I am trying the technique from the Big Quilts, Small Machines class. It doesn't look too hard and the quilting is much easier this way.
