Sunday.. oh Sunday

 I have FMQed! really, I have! not very well, but I have been going for it. All those squiggly lines up there, that is FMQ!


 And this lot, too
 And when you put them together? they actually look a little better than they did on their own. Thank goodness, I did not fancy having to undo all that lot.
 So, I am joining them in pairs for the minute, Just sewing the quilt top bit together, trimming the wadding, and then lapping the back, and folding in one edge neatly, and topstitching.
 So far, three pairs together this fashion, and another part way and the fifth pinned.

One pair left to quilt yet, and then, I probably need four more trippy blocks, as I think it will be better as a 4 x 4 than as a 3 x 4...

 Topstitched down that edge..

Quite neat, I think, and I can always add a little more quilting if I feel adventurous!

so here are the three pairs work in progress...

what do you think, then?

Your FMQ looks great! My favourite quote of the Retreat was when you gave me your bag and I congratulated you on FMQ'ing the straps and you said "That's not FMQ. That's just Q."

Good for you forgiving it a whirl. You're coming along grand and like your QAYG also. Something I should probably try.

Have a good time at the show on Saturday. thought I'd let you know that the fat quarters (quality fabric) I bought and are on my post, were only £1 each , 6 for £5, from The Shuttle Stand. Best deal in the show. The stand is in one of the middle aisles, left of the entrance door and on the right side, not far from the door end.
Have fun! Jo x
