The June Free Motion Quilting Challenge at SewCalGal is a tutorial by Cindy Needham. Cindy is a talented and professional quilter who travels all over the world. She is also an author, a designer, and hostess of retreats. Be sure to visit her website to see her fabulous quilts!
Cindy gave us so much useful information and lots of practice! I loved this month! Cindy suggested the ‘divide and conquer’ method. In other words, divide the work into sections and then fill in the sections. Instead of an entire blank canvas (or fat quarter, as in my case) to fill, I could simply concentrate on a section at a time. Baby steps.
Here’s my piece:
Cindy suggested using a contrasting thread. Obviously, I didn’t pay any attention to that. Don’t be like me.
The only time I changed threads was when the spool I was using ran out. Yup…I was using up thread, and I emptied three spools.
Do you see the Jester hat in the quilting above? Wendy, over at Ivory Spring, does it much, much better! She has a tutorial on how to quilt the Jester hat. I need more practice! I was confused frequently while trying to change directions.
Thank you so much Cindy!
