|FMQ in the ditch|
|Backside of FMQ around block|
First starting out with the ITD FMQ, I did some frog stitching and trying again. Then I began to relax a little and did better. I find I mess up when starting off after stopping to adjust the quilt. Once in a while the needle goes where I think it will and stitches forward in the correct place, but most often, it's off to the right or left. I know it has to do with getting the quilt back in place after adjusting. I'll eventually get that under control too, I suppose. And yes, I am using a green thread for my quilting. Another Leah-ism...how can you see your mistakes and get better if your thread is a perfect match to the fabric? Gulp! I keep telling myself...this is a learning quilt, this is a learning quilt.....
Next step will be free motion in and around the blocks.
Keep on Stitchin'!
