    Default Table cloth

    Hi

    I finished the fmq practise piece and it turned out good.

    I did not do a very good job on attaching the binding by machine but it is good enough
    It is a practise piece!

    Any way, I think it looks good on the table.

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    This is a practice piece? It looks good! I like the different patterns on the different colors.

    I am making practice sandwiches and it seems like I'm getting worse instead of better. I'm trying out different things like silicon spray and quilting gloves. But my first attempts look better. *Big Sigh* I know I'll get the hang of it.
    One yard of fabric, like one cookie, is never enough!

    Annika, you did a lovely job on your practice piece. You can send me any you do not like. LOL

    CraftHer, practice, practice, practice. Do not be so hard on yourself. I do not post mine as they are too horrible. LOL

    You will! And quilting gloves are a must, at least for me, I'm glad you got them.

    This is just stunning quilting! So attractive! I think I will give that filler (the varied length straight lines) a try myself!

    It is very attractive. Your FMQ is very nice.
