    Thanks Marilyn!! WOW...

    I finally around to putting that FMQ thingamajig on my machine and trying it out. ZOOM... I am on my way. I did a bit of meandering last night on some sample sandwiches and I was pretty pleased with myself! Indeed! I need to get plenty of practice before I will jump to one of my quilts.. But, I think I will be comfortable with it soon.

    Thanks so much... such a small little thing in your hand... a BIG blessing to me!!

      I did a query for FMQ thingamajig, but I got nothing. Perhaps it has another name?

          Same here. I am thinking about starting fmq this winter. I know it takes practice and I have no patience but I want to at least try.

                    When I first started on the FMQ journey, I bought the inexpensive, generic FMQ foot for $9.99. Since it was mostly plastic parts, it didn't hold up well. I think I went through 2 of those before I invested in the specific foot for my brand DSM. I think it cost $35. It's held up well & worked so much better than those plastic ones. Part of the secret is to get the tension adjusted well. I always set my stitch length to 0. If you have a computerized DSM, sometimes you have to adjust the setting for the weight of your fabrics. I always did FMQ on the medium speed. It definitely takes practice! I quilted many quilts on my DSM prior to investing in the Baby Lock Tiara II LA last year. Good luck.

                      I really love FMQing but wonder how I'm going to feel about these quilts in years to come. I like the instant gratification of finishing and starting a new one. But, handquiltling seems so precious

                        The thingie in question, is her darning or FMQ foot. Not a big mystery, lol.

                            Thanks. I thought that might be what she meant.
