QuiltShopGal's FMQ Challenge

This group is intended to help encourage and support members on their journey to learn and improve their free-motion quilting skills. We do not judge, but love to see what you have created, as well as try to answer questions.

For 2016, I do not plan on hosting an FMQ Challenge throughout the year. But I do plan on hosting a variety of FMQ Challenges during the year, as well as FMQ Stitch A Longs. Here is a summary of current plans:



THE ULTIMATE QUILTING CHALLENGE - Summer 2016

This event will have three phases, including a doodle/sketch on paper challenge, with free downloadable templates,  that is open to everyone.  The first phase, a virtual quilt show for projects previously made using the Ultimate Stencil Collection and/or The Ultimate Background collection is for sharing past projects, to help inspire others.  For more info: http://quiltshopgal.com/the-ultimate-free-motion-quilting-challenge-summer-2016-kick-off-with-virtual-quilt-showlinky-party/

Thanks rogue quilter. I will post some things I have been working on in a day or so. I have to figure out how to do it to this site.
I don't see where it gives me the option to upload a picture. Any suggestions? I am on iPad - do I have to be on a regular computer because my pictures are not on it. Thx

for ruth ann & mary ..as you'll see in the different discussions sbove, the site was sort of hosted by quiltshopgal. she's a commercial quilter who's also a member here @ mqp. i haven't seen her post snywhere in a long time. i never joined the challenges, but tried to follow along. when i had time. the group has sort of languished between sporadic postings. no one has ever seemed to stay active long enough to form the chatty personal stories bond formed in a few of the other more active groups like UFO group.
if you want to help ..between the two of you, riana & i, maybe we can keep up a dislogue share some pics, ideas whatever ... ???

Seems many of the 'groups' aren't very active.... takes people 'writing in' to ask questions or 'show 'n tell' to keep 'em going good...

Is this an active group anymore?   I have seen only one post this month and all others before were a year ago in 2016?  I was hoping this was going to be pointers and discussions on FMQ on either regular domestic machines or mid arm sitdowns.  Did I misunderstand what this group is about?  Just confused.  Thanks.

Under the needle today, my truck quilt  fundraiser for a truckers' mobile chapel. The brother of a friend is a trucker and also a pastor.

I'm so proud of my fmq students! A group member let us use her top as a class project. The improvement of each person shows in the finished project. l did the sashing & border...those things will be taught in the "advanced" class next time.

Barbara D.,Juki has a solid reputation as work horse, l used a Juki as one of drapery shop machines too. However, l'd check out the Janome 6500, which is still available...it has a lot more options for stitch variety. You'd have the same nearly 10" throat, but more bells/whistles for similar price range. The 6600 is also a fine machine, as it has a built in walking foot...but l prefer the spool holding option on the 6500. l can put the walking foot on when l need it.

Hi Barbara, You most likely have heard of Leah Day. She has a Juki, It is something new for her since most all her emails were with the Janomi. She said something like, if you want to know about her machine to ask on her website which I believe is Leahday.com. Hope this helps a little.

I'm new to machine quilting. I've been using a 1970's me more and a 1920's singer. I'm in the market for a new machine. Looking at the Juki 2010. Any comments or suggestions would be awesome
