In the spirit of the Valentine Sewing Party, here's what I've been up to today. I'm a confident seamstress, but Free Motion Quilting scares the heck out of me - feel like I'm driving 100 mph in a 15 mph zone.
Learned FMQ last spring, but I'm not a professional quilter, so I don't do it every day. It takes a whole lot of practice, practice, practice before I can get up the nerve to risk ruining my lovingly pieced quilt. Does anyone else feel this way? I'm also wondering how many quilters actually quilt their own stuff and how many send it out to be quilted by someone else? I do all my own stuff, but feel like this project is taking forever!
I DID make TWO quilt sandwiches today though. Putsy work, but oh so necessary. At least when I get this one done, the other will be ready for quilting. :)
