SewCalGal - FMQ Challenge - June 2012

Directions: Draw a doodle then fill the sections in with FMQing!

 This was a clever challenge - combining zendoodle with FMQing!

I used scrap batting and material for this piece - I have too many other projects in progress and was  afraid to cut into the new batting for fear I'd mess up the calculations made when purchasing the batting.  I join this with some of my other practice pieces to make a nice lap quilt!

I can tell I have improved as I did not break a needle or jam up the thread while doing this.

Next time I would plan ahead so I could travel to the different sections - I will use this idea again.  It was fun!


You too can join up with the 2012 SewCalGal's Free-Motion Quilt Challenge now to become a better free motion quilter and have the chance to win fabulous prizes!!

  1. It looks great! I would have never thought to do a design like this and, like you, will do a bit of planning next time. Isn't it great to know we are improving?! I love it! ~Jeanne
