Giveaway and April 2012 Free-Motion Quilting Challenge

I finished my April FMQ Challenge hosted by SewCalGal.  The goal was to try a new marking technique for our free-motion quilting.  We were supposed to lay a piece of tulle over the pattern and trace it.  Then lay the tulle over the desired quilting material and trace it again.  We were given a specific pattern to use.  Easy enough.  Here’s my piece. 


I then decided it needed a bit more quilting before I could call it finished.  I call it Spanish Sunrise.


I also sandwiched my mother’s quilt.  All ready to go now.  Tomorrow I have an appointment to do my taxes.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh?

A couple months ago, Diane Gaudynski suggested we keep a quilter’s journal.  Everyone who enters The 2012 Free-Motion Quilting Challenge and also posts it here as well, will be entered this month to win a copy of A Quilter’s Notebook.  Prize to be chosen the first week of May by Random Number Generator.  Good luck everyone!


What did you FMQ today?

Love your rendition of Don Linn's design. Great job. I picked up some tulle at Walmarts for .97 a yard. I can't wait to give it a try.

Love the addition of the extra quilting. So was it as easy as it looks? I was going to try with one of the patterns from a Karen McTavish book. I hope it works as well for me as it did for you.

I love this kind of patterns.It really simple but stylist designs looks on the materials.Color combinations are really different.

Your interpretation of the design is great! I think his way of marking would be good in cases where either the marking has rubbed off, or if one decided to stitch a drawn design on a quilt that was already sandwiched... Your additional FMQ embellishment is really nice!
