This months Free-Motion Quilting Challenge over at SewCalGal's is with Teri Lucas, this was a fun if slightly intimidating month. I did mine on cotton, silk sounds beautiful for this but if I had silk I'd be wearing it. Starting out with our names then decorating the entire block around it sounded like fun.
I love the shell shapes, so fun and even the first attempt looked "not bad". As usual I tried to copy the beautiful example Teri gave us, I need to let myself process all of this, then I can play more and make it my own. I've found that I do that with every month's example, then slowly I see it showing up in my quilting. I did change my thread colors, but they weren't dramatic enough to really show up.
It did make me wish I had a more exotic and longer name like Carressa or Celestine and I did call my mother to complain, she said to blame my father (Dan) and he wouldn't come to the phone.
C'est la vie
