FMQ

I made some progress on the FMQ fill on this quilt.  Unfortunately, I discovered that FMQ on my home machine puts pressure on the same nerves in my right wrist that I fatigued Saturday digging weeds with a hand trowel, then inflamed with nearly 300 miles on the bike Sunday (throttle hand).  Subsequently, after about 10 minutes my right thumb and pointer finger go numb.
  It's easier to see how the fill is shaping up from the back where the grey thread contrasts with the red backing.

My FMQ is getting better.  And I'm trying to relax and not worry if things don't go exactly as I have them in my mind.  Maybe by the time I get this one done I'll be ready to claim that I've moved from "beginner" to "intermediate" FMQ skills.   Practice, practice, practice.
