To all the new members I have missed greeting ,I want to welcome you to The FMQ group and hope you will join us in the fun of learning how to do FMQ,  Yes its scary if you have never done any ,but I try my best to make it fun and easy to learn,  MY big rule is to take a deep Breath , and relax, and most important is to have fun, We have no judges here and none of us are perfect. I to am a beginner ,so we are all learning this together . I will try my very best to answer all your questions and if I miss you  please let me know it was not done on purpose. You will be so amazed at how quickly it will come to you with practice, and that is something you have to do . So take that deep BREATH , RELAX and have FUN,, Barbara

Thank you. I decided to attempt the FMQ this past year.  Not very good yet at it but it is slowly improving. I did recently do a lap quilt . When I finished peicing the top part I didn't really like it but yet kind of do (mainly didn't like my fabric choices), so i thought that would be a good one to practice on. I named it "the ugly quilt" (but it really isn't that ugly).

Hi. I joined QCA a couple of days ago so I could watch the videos at QNNtv. I've done forums before in other areas, but not in quilting. I'm not a new quilter but I am new to doing machine quilting. I've always quilted by hand. So I'm learning machine piecing but mostly I'm learning free motion.

I've finally gotten to a point where I was willing to work on an actual quilt. A very small one.  This is the quilt. I've only got about half the border to finish now. I'm having a lot of fun doing this.
