Brink, now that I've had a small introduction to "machine quilting" as in a 4 hour class ( ) I've looked again at your one and only block and notice that it's got lots of doodles and I'm in quite an envious state here in Texas. Control of your machine! What a concept!
I've at the beginning end of a loooooong learning curve! Practice, practice, practice. Right?
Mary Kay, glad to have you with us on this journey. I found Feb. easier and quicker although others have said different. March was difficult for me and so was April but once you get caught up it should get easier. (Anyway that is my hope since I am doing two of each month) Love the process and good luck to you.
