Day 5 Mary Ann/ND

Real progress today...
I relaxed...
I chose a larger project 16x17"
I switched to Aerofil Madeira thread in top and bottom to match the fabric
I used my open toe quilting foot
I didn't "fear" or "hesitate", I went forth with gusto - and did circles all over
because that's what I felt confident to do
Here it is - my very first ever machine quilted quilt!  Thank you for your encouragement everyone!!!

I actually LOVE the results on the back!

I feel very encouraged...both by my results and your comments and suggestions!
Thank you, FMQers!!

It's kind of funny that my Dachshund will receive the very first machine quilted quilt I ever made!!  :-)
Shhh...don't tell my kids, OK?

Then, I got so excited that I actually completed something, that I even pinned on the binding and plan to sew it on tonight!  Little Gunnar should have a lovely, warm place to sleep now.
