FMQ Challenge



Think Zendoodle. SewCalGal's FMQ Challenge for the month of June features FMQ expert Cindy Needham. You can find here tutorial here.


I started out marking my lines with a Clover white marking pen. I marked Large loops for this challenge.

Then, I filled in the loops with random designs.

Then the feathers. I experimented a bit leaving some plain, and adding to a few.I think my over all design ended up looking like ornaments on a christmas tree;)






I spent an amazing amount of time quilting this 15 in. quilt sandwich. I worked all day Saturday(8 hrs. I think)?



Sunday I worked on my Loopy line design for the Quilt Along Wednesday with Leah Day. This design was pretty easy to master. I'm sure I will be using it in future quilts as it is a quick, fun, easy design to do.

  3. Absolutely love your work! Wasn't the free motion challenge this month fun? I want to spend more time playing with it, I'm sure it wasn't hard to spend a whole day at it!!! Your loopy lines look great too. It was nice to have an easy fun one - although they are all getting easier! ~Jeanne

  16. I am getting caught up on my blog reading. Your fmg blows me away! You are so good! I love all your designs. I love love your tutorial for the quilt labels too. I'm going to have to try those. I always forget about the label until the end, so those would be the perfect solution for me. :)
