Default Thread Painting and FMQ a panel.

A summer birdhouse panel I bought last year, not really for any special purpose. So I decided to play with threads and color to FMQ the panel. I used lots of different designs on the green areas and matched threads with panel colors. I used a wood look design on the birdhouse. It was fun. I have given classes on FMQ and I like to show ways you can enjoy practicing and learning with simple ideas. I have several classes coming up in the next month and will use this for an example of many different completely free motion designs. Try a small printed block and make pillows or hotpads. I want to encourage anyone that they can do this!img_5811-001.jpgimg_5806-001.jpgimg_5807-001.jpgimg_5809-001.jpg
