It looks to be quite an experience and an excellent learning opportunity. We should all sign up!

I finished my table topper, Champagne Sunday. And it’s Sunday, too! How about that. Bright and cheery for any day (even a cloudy one like today). I tried some new stuff with this little quilt, including stitching alongside another row of stitches, using the FMQ foot as a guide. As you can see, I didn’t do so well at that. It’s amusing, looking at this all the way around, you can see how I get better at it on each border. Very marked where the last border meets the first. I just recently bought a Juki TL 98Q after working with a Janome 423S (their very bottom end machine) for a bit over a year. I can’t stress how much easier it was to FMQ with a sewing machine that is made for quilting.
I love this quilt. I truly do. It’s based on a Katharine Guerrier design.
Enjoy the day. I’m off to do some writing.

Ok so the main reason I joined the challenge was to get good enough with the FMQ skills to quilt my Baltimore Album by myself on my little ol' DMS. And guess what I finally finished. After over 3 years, it's done, woohooo! Now time to move on to something a bit easier for while!
