June Free Motion Challenge

Our June Challenge is from Cindy Needham, and oh what a challenge it is! Thank you Cindy for trying to push me out of my comfortable box.

We start off by looking for our “hmmm – purr, the sound our machine makes when we are most comfortable. I am still looking for mine and I think I am almost there, not too fast or too slow.

Cindy had us make a sandwich on which we could practice. You can see I even used a stencil to practice a design I want to use on one of my quilts. I have also drawn a 1 inch grid for future practice, it peeks out there on the right.

Our Challenge for the month is to take all that practice and ‘doodle’ a design. Below is my first attempt.

I have been enjoying the doodles the group on Face Book have posted. One of them, according to the quilter, looks like an octopus. It’s ‘eyes’ seem to be checking you out, enemy or lunch!

Another drew a grid of 1 inch and 1/2 inch and filled all those tiny boxes. Way too detailed and precise for me. I will probably post more attempts for your comments before the final one toward the end of June. In the mean time, have fun quilting.
