June’s special guest teacher for the 2012 Free-Motion Quilting Challenge through SewCalGal was Cindy Needham. She does such beautiful work. This month she encouraged us to do a sampler of sorts. She wanted us to experiment with “The Basic Three” – a repetitive line, a circle, and an S-curve. She advised us to spend some time sketching to explore various options. Nice idea, but no time for that for me since I had a limited amount of time to do this before the month was gone. Improvisation would have to do.
I jumped into it this morning, and after many interruptions and delays, I finally finished it at 9:30 PM! Sigh of relief… Not too pleased with the results. Cindy suggested using a high contrast thread so we could see our stitches better. Hahaha! That also shows all the mistakes better, too!
Well, enough is enough. Maybe next month I won’t procrastinate so much. On to the next thing.
