I finally made the time to complete my June piece for the Free Motion Quilt Challenge with Sew Cal Gal. Whilst not exactly the same, my finished piece does slightly resemble my initial drawing and I am pleased with the overall result. I found that once I got starting l got into a rhythm and it was quite addictive. Whenever I thought I was about done, I found myself filling in another space with another design then the same again.
I definitely need to keep practicing as there are quite a few whoopsi's but they blend in with the overall result pretty well.
What did I learn this month?
1. relax and enjoy the process
2. it doesn't have to be perfect
3. free form feathers are awesome
4. circles/pebbles are the enemy!
Here is a picture of my very busy but finished piece and a couple of close ups.
Thank you Cindy Needham. I had to really stretch myself this month but your comprehensive notes and encouragement made this so much more attainable.
I feel as though I have turned a corner. Whilst my fmq is not perfect, I have achieved far more than I thought I was capable of doing and that fills me with confidence moving forward.
Bring on the next challenge.
