I did it!!!

On Jen's advice, I drank a little and then tried my FMQ again. I had a glass of amaretto and orange juice and a splash of Sprite. I am feeling really good right now!

Anyway, I set up the machine and practiced on my practice fabric again and used the rest of the space that I had.

I also went a little crazy and tried to do my name.

Then, I put in an off white color and worked on my Halloween table runner. I probably should have chosen something a little darker - something more beige or gray - but I think it turned out well!

All in all, I think that I am ready to quilt at least one of the Kid Komfort quilts tomorrow and see how it goes. If all goes well, then I will be quilting the I Spy! I was thinking about going a little crazy and quilting the sections differently, but I think that I am going to try and stick to an all over stipple/meander. We'll see how it goes with the Kid Komfort quilt first!

It looks fabulous!! Although I don't think I can be held responsible for you drinking before noon tomorrow and all day long!! LOL

Great Job! I love the tablerunner. Can't wait to see what you get done tomorrow.

Great job. Little by little I keep doing small project with FMQ. Jen's idea of having a drink first does help.

Looks great! Maybe someday I'll get brave and try it!

wow that looks good. I'll have to try the drinking and fmq sometime. I'm definately not very good at it yet.
