FMQ Challenge Days 4 & 5

I'm making great progress in the FMQ Challenge!
I had to skip a day because I was having socializing kind of fun. But I came roaring back this weekend by getting about 2-3 hours in each day. Since I’m doing all the black thread first, I can finally say that I completed one row of my quilt! I started my second row and am already making some fabulous progress. Here’s a picture of the back so you can see better.

It seems like that first row took forever to complete. Probably because all I could see were all the unquilted areas. Now I can see my quilted row and I feel like this project is within my reach! Some nights I feel like I have to wrestle and fight the quilt. Other nights it flows freely and we do a quilting waltz. Still a bit awkward and hesitant but my flow is improving.


  1. Beautiful quilting... it's going to be a stunner!

  2. WOW JEN! You are doing very well!! I'm still impressed! Your curves are a lot smoother. It's so neat to see you going through this learning process and seeing how you are improving - just amazing! Great job!

  3. You're doing such a great job that I'm feeling a little prodding to try it!


Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know you were here! Comments mean so much to me. Have a fantastic day!
