FMQ – putting me thru the ringer

So I joined this group on Facebook Sit Down Free Motion Quilters to help push me into using my big sewing machine. I have so many Quilt tops done it’s ridiculous!!!!  So this past weekend, I had a dog and hubby free day – I started the dreaded project of washing all the linens and decided I would do this in between loads – or loads of laundry in between these lessons. Basically it came down to which ever project was making me crazy I would go do the other!!!

But, got 5 of the lessons done – I give myself a solid C, A for effort, but C for abilities.

I have learned a lot from the group, but it is all about practice and developing muscle memory.  The hardest part for me is making a decision which way to go or what to do.

My worst nightmare is when someone says to me “Just do what ever you want”!!!!!  NOOOOOOOO!
