The Free-Motion Quilting Challenge for August is from Wendy Sheppard. I think this is a beautiful flowing designs, but it's going to take a lot of practice on my part.
I had a hard time just trying to draw it and my attempts at sewing were dismal. I have way too many open spaces, I sewed myself into places I couldn't get out of and just generally made a mess of it. So in a last ditch effort to at least have something I tried drawing it out on the quilt piece and sewing that way. Still a fail.
No laughing! Oh go ahead, I am.
I used a disappearing ink marker, but the ink won't disappear so it looks even worse.
In my defense August was a weird month, my birthday, a hurricane, a broken toe and lastly a broken down car far from home.
Come on September.
I do want to thank Wendy and SewCalGal for their efforts. This really is a beautiful design, worth going back and learning once I'm a little more relaxed. Seeing it on Wendy's quilts is inspiring.
