A new diversion!!!!

I have been wanting to learn fmq for a long time.

I have only ever done stipple stitch,  so I leaped  at the opportunity when I saw that  a workshop with Bev McClune.

I enjoyed day 1 so much i was lined up for a 2nd  day.

I have a long way to go, but here are the results this far.


Day 1
We learnt some basics of getting used to free flowing.


And at the end i put this together as a summary.


Day 2
We learnt lots this day and today I have put eveything learnt into practice.


Oh and what inspired me to just do it.  A blogger, Fiona  (Bugz Rugz) had some lessons a while backand  she is quilting beautifully now, so thank you Fiona for your past posts as it has inspired me to get stuck in and learn.

So.... If you have ever wanted to do fmq take the plunge! A whole new avenue!

Wow, Dawnie, this is great - I'm so impressed, having tried (and failed) to get to grips with FMQ.
