I did enjoy myself yesterday, but was worried that I may have bitten off more than I could chew when I decided I would FMQ this:
I took a deep breath and went ahead anyway. Now, please remember I have only done this on a few occasions and I still have a long way to go, but on the whole, so far, I think it's going ok:
One thing that I have definately learnt is the need to keep breathing whilst doing this!
I need to be more fluid and I definately like to do my swirls one way more than the other. also, I KNOW that I am doing this wrong - my feed dogs are up. I started off not dropping them by accident and then realised. I had a look at the front and back and decided that it was all going fine, so I couldn't change it. Maybe this is why it is not so fluid.
this is (a very bad) picture of the back. So, all you ace FMQ'ers out there - I need to spread out my swirls don't I : is this too packed together? Obviously I won't change it on this quilt, but for future reference?
Most importantly, I am enjoying doing this and I hope that however this ends up looking (not too disasterous I hope) it will make a little girl who is poorly, feel a little better. I will give you the end result when I am done!
