    June 2012 Free Motion Quilting Challenge-my entry

    This is my entry for the June tutorial given by Cindy Needham. We were to do a doodle design and fill it in with machine quilting. This challenge is for conventional machines, no longarms. It was fun to do. Now I just need to finish the border and get the binding on!! :^)

    I LOVE it. I can't believe you did this on a conventional machine. It gives me hope! Thanks for inspiring and sharing.

    It's beautiful, and this might be a much easier way to learn how to FMQ! Will this square up ok?
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It shouldn't be a problem to square up once I get the border quilted!!!

    That is totally cool. I bet it really increases your skill and your ability to think outside the box.

    That is so cool! Love the way the quilt 'moves' and compliments the border fabric. Great job! You get my vote.

    Oh my gosh, this definitely gives me hope. I have try FMQ on my machine and what a disaster that was. Will have to look into a class like this. You did an awesome job.
