MNnancy:
Those are pretty fabrics, Marie.  I like your color combination!

Thanks Nancy.  I tried finding blues in my stash that would go,came up with two a flower and a stripe but liked this version better.  I have a week so maybe I'll cut those two and put it into the mix and post for comments.

I took the fabrics I had chosen for an appliqued pattern I bought, but realized I'd never make. The dark red (2 yd) and the beige (3 yd) are the only non-FQs in the batch.

Pre washing fabric. I always wash mine, then usually use some light starch when I iron to get some body back. I decided this year to give it a try not to prewash my craftsy BOM, will let you know if I am happy or not.

I have always heard to be careful if mixing fabric, such as, using flanel on back side because it shrinks different than regular cotton.

My two cents anyway, back to playing with new machine

I am new to QCA and i apologize if this has been addressed already, but I'm curious, what is the level of difficulty for MQ7?  I am also new to quilting and I just wanted to see before I jump in.  Thanks!

Paula, the level of difficulty should not be a problem, so far it looks really simple and straightforward. Jump on in and join us.
