2012 Free Motion Quilt Along with Leah Day - Review

This year has been a amazing journey in my quilting world. I have learned a loads in free motion quilting. Made great quilting friends online and at BMQG.
And Leah Day's Quilt Along Wednesdays have been a major part in improving my FMQ skills.

Below are the pictures from January 2012 till December 2012 showing the improvement in my FMQ skills.

Feb & March - 2012; My very first quilt in the QAL

What could be a better comparison than Apples-to Apples. I just happen to making another ABC Baby boy quilt which I originally made in March 2012.

You can see my FMQ skills being transformed from novice to professional quilter in this post. A great big HUG and THANKS to Leah Day.
