I couldn't wait to use my tumbler die for my Accuquilt! I had also decided that I was going to practice my FMQ skills on this one so I purchased some fabric from Joannes on a really great sale. I was planning on donating it so I didn't have a lot of money or sentiment tied up in my first FMQ attempt. It was very liberating and not terribly stressful. I encourage anyone afraid of trying out their first FMQ experience not to put a lot of $$ or mental attachment in the quilt itself.
