What's the problem? Well let me show you:
I have to come to the conclusion that I just can not do FMQ-ing. Come to think of it, I already knew that, that's why I have Big Bertha to do my quilting for me, so why did I ever think I might be able to do it now?
So, It looks as though I'm going to have to go back to the drawing board regarding my Christmas Challenge entry, cos the quilting is an essential part of it.
