Here is my June assignment for the 2012 FMQ Challenge. This one was a lot of fun. It was basically doodling on fabric, so I tried a bunch of different designs. I used a variegated thread on plain white fabric. While I was working on the grid pattern, G2 said “that’s a nice basket”. It would certainly be appropriate for a basket design.
At this stage, I can’t imagine doing a quilt with this much quilting on it. The heavy stitching makes the piece quite stiff. It would be okay for place mats or a wall-hanging, but probably not for a bed quilt. I can’t believe how much I’ve improved since January. The mini stippling was pretty easy, and my stitches are a lot more even. This challenge has been great practice.
