Developing my FMQ skills

I decided that I needed to work on developing my FMQ skills.  I tend to fall back on a my go-to pattern of echoed teardrops.  I thought about going to take a class and Judi Madsen from Green Fairy Quilts is not only an amazing quilter, but was teaching classes in Edmonton this summer!!  But when I looked at the cost of travel, hotels, classes etc, it was going to cost a lot!  Not to mention that this summer was very busy with a family wedding and lots of house guests saying with us, so it would be hard to get away. The other deciding factor was that the classes were all demo classes, with no opportunity for practicing the skills yourself.

So I bought one of her books....  Quilting Wide open Spaces

Image result for quilting wide open spaces

What I liked about this book is that it included a pattern for a quilt and then detailed instruction for how to quilt it.  Judi has a very distinctive style, and it is very dense quilting and intricate patterns!  At first I was a bit intimidated by the detailed patterns, but thought I would give it a try anyway. I had a problem initially with making the quilt top...lots of 7/16" type of pieces....which I struggle with!  And obviously made a mistake, because my blocks did not turn out properly and my points don't match up !!  :(

But I decided that since I was just learning a practicing it was OK!  I am sure that I would make lots more mistakes anyway!!!
I was pleasantly surprised ....although it is detailed it is not that difficult!!  Oh, lots of mistakes...don't get me wrong!  But...with such dense detail I found that it is not that obvious anyway!  Surprise!

The bottom line is I have learned A LOT!  Also , I have learned that  I will not likely quilt this way on most of my quilts.  Although I like how detailed it looks, I find the quilt is a bit more stiff, and not as soft and drapey. 



 And it took a LOT of time to do. What I will do , though, is incorporate some of this into my quilting.


  And also what it has done is really increased my confidence.  I am much more relaxed now when FMQ , which really helps.  I would recommend this book and practicing these patterns if you are looking to expand your FMQ.  Thanks Judi!

  1. As this book about transitions was being published, I was beginning a transition of my own, Jordans for Cheap, starting a new job at Appalachian State University (ASU) in North Carolina. 1 already owe thanks to my new colleagues at ASU for making my transition as smooth as possible. Much of the research and writing for the book took place while I was teaching at Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Virginia. 1 owe thanks to all my friends, colleagues, and students at Mary Washington College, who helped me in so many ways during my seven years there.

    This book is based on original field research carried out in Jordan in 1992-1993, 1997, 1999, and 2001. As a result, I owe thanks to countless Jordanians who gave me their time, knowledge, and hospitality. The New Jordans, A small fraction of these individuals are listed and acknowledged in the bibliography as official interviewees, but most are anonymous for the purpose of citation. I am grateful to them all, including the Sbeih family of Amman, who treated me as a son and brother during my yearlong stay in the kingdom in 1992-1993. http://www.thenewcheapjordans.com

  4. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid,Get Your Ex Back, You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....

  23. Hard Assignment hep Australia

    Even the most proficient students who are on top of their work all the time can sometimes get stuck with homework that is difficult and baffling. When it comes to these difficult assignments, you already know that it’s going to be a very long and hard slog. You have two options: run away from your work and never look back or face the project head on—and come away a victor. It’s up to you. Now as a student, you know that running away is not an option and therefore it is better to take up the challenge. It is unrealistic to believe that you will come out of the experience unscathed. If not successful, you will likely get some experience and become more empowered by gaining an understanding of your next big assignment or challenge.
