Week One, Day Six - Saturday

Today was my FMQ teaching day... who would have thought talking for hours would be so exhausting!

I had things organised so everyone had a booklet, to encourage practicing the techniques with pen and paper first, before committing to needle and thread.  I do think this is a worthwhile part of the process.

I'm pretty sure it was a success.  I wanted to inspire people who were disillusioned with FMQ in general, to convince them that "they could do it", and provide a technique that was both achievable and easily translated to a variety of pieced quilts.

I didn't get a lot of time to quilt on my own little quilt... but did get some done.  I used an off-white Invisifill 100wt thread in both top and bottom.  It has a lovely chameleon like quality... just seems to pick up whatever colour fabric you are sewing on, yes, this is all sewn with white.

Luckily my husband had dinner all under control - so I came home to a roast in the oven.  I think I'll have an early night tonight.
