FMQ Challenge

I took the pledge and bit the bullet.  I have been so frustrated trying to machine quilt.  But I signed up for Sew CalGal's challenge and am so happy I did.  I watched Frances' tutorial and set myself to work.  My first attempts were somewhat pitiful but I presevered.  Practice, practice, practice is the key, I know.  But what I found helpful was that it is just one little piece to work on.  I saw improvement from the first of the month until the end of the month.  I feel more confident than I have in years.  I am excited about February's lesson.  Here are a few examples of my attempts.


  1. You did great! I can't wait for Febs.,but... I will still be working on Jan a bit longer.

    1. I have a long way to go. I think I will keep working on the leaves. the more different things I can do the better!!
