    1. Yes, and my hands/wrists are hurting now! I was gripping like my life depended upon it, it seams.

    2. My hands and wrists hurt too after doing FMQ for periods. Eventually I get into the groove and relax with it.

    1. Haha, no way no how is it perfect! The FMQ just barely passes, but it'll definitely hold the quilt together, so that's what matters...

  7. That quilt is just fabulous, Rachel! It is making me wish I had more long strip scraps. Drool.

  9. This is really lovely!
    Do yourself a favor and get a pair of Machine Fingers. I think that's what they're called. They are white gloves. Tend to run a little big so I would suggest a size smaller than you think. Less than $10 and your hands and wrists will thank you for it. They grip the quilt and keep you from having to work so hard. I don't know what I ever did without them!

  10. Oh, it looks so good! Ah. I'm going to have to make more of the herringbone blocks. You are on top of things to already be finishing, Rachel!

  11. Very pretty. I so love that feeling when you trim a quilted quilt and prepare it for binding. Just takes on a special look. Yours is really lovely.
