Lessons Learned

Found some time between festivities to quilt this weekend.  I'm still new to FMQ, am getting used to a new machine, a different thread than I'm accustomed to, and all the bulk of a queen sized quilt to wrestle into submission. I practiced on muslin first.  Got my rhythm and speed in perfect sync and was able to use continuous line quilting for this red rose bud motif. 

Summoned my courage and began quilting.  The Janome Horizon performed beautifully.  Experimented with the right table set up.  This still needs improvment.

I sewed one full row of rose buds.  The hardest part (getting started) is behind me now.  Onward, ho!  :)
