    FMQ Playtime (Craftsy Class Homework)

    Here's what I've been up to this morning... I started Cindy Needham's "Design It, Quilt It" class on Craftsy and here's my first homework assignment completed. It is supposed to show free-form use of lines, circles and s-curves. This piece is about 9" x 11" and done on my DSM (Juki TL 98 Q).

    You did a great job. I am so afraid to try it. I do everything so tight and always have.

    I started a little over 3 years ago. Since I work full-time, I don't spend as much time at FMQ as I'd like, but it sure is fun! I started with a little experimentation, then one 3 hour class at a LQS, use of lots of resources on-line info and videos, books and DVDs including work by Leah Day, Karen McTavish, Sharon Schamber and now Cindy Needham. I've practiced too many hours to count and am still learning tons! My practice pieces the first several months were BAAAAAAAAD, but I was determined to learn and didn't give up. It's my experience that you have to be really committed to learning and practicing if you want to get good at FMQ. It's the most difficult thing I've learned in a long time!

    You're welcome. I'm really enjoying so far. It starts out with some basics and about half way through, she gets into the actually designs.

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!!! Can you please translate DSM though. Sorry to say this, and I feel like I'm beginning the New Year with kind of a crabby start, but it honestly drives me crazy when things can't be spelled out.
    Happy New Year to all!!!!!

    I don't think you need a class! This is gorgeous and it seems you've already gotten the hang of it. Maybe I need to take that class!!

    Even your homework is wonderful. Yes I took that class too. My friend could see a difference in the direction of my quilting. Mainly it taught me about breaking things down into small section when thinking about a project.

    Deb, You know that your experience from that class is what pushed me to actually sign up! I am absolutely LOVING it and can't wait to try out a bunch more stuff. Like for you, it is teaching me how to break things down and fit them all back together again. Until now, I hadn't really identified the "shadow" component of the designs that she talks about, but it's all beginning to make so much sense now! Shadows have been totally missing from my quilting, but no longer. I can't wait to do some more "homework", and then a real project using Cindy Needham's design techniques!

    So Deb, what are you going to come up with next???

    ...I have to go buy some MORE thread now ('cause the 100's of spools I have are almost all 40 wt.)...
