The FMQ Challenge tutorial this month is by Wendy Sheppard. She showed us how to do a "simple and fun" quilting motif that she likes to call the Jester's Hat. Cute little curly-cues that somewhat resemble jester hats. I first practiced in my drawing tablet.
I was having trouble filling in the gaps. I'm very comfortable doing swirly-type quilting but I was trying to do jester hats. I did a quilt sample block next.
That went a bit better. Next I went to the sample quilt I'm creating with the monthly challenges. Hard to believe we've done 8 of them already. This is the front side.
A variety of pink/print blocks on the front and green flannel on the back.
So, there's my August challenge. The hardest part of this challenge was getting it done. I did this this morning at 5 a.m.
Thank you SewCalGal and Wendy Sheppard for the opportunity to learn new free motion quilting skills.
