SewCalGal's FMQ Challenge

This group began as part of a 2012 FMQ Challenge, which I hosted.  There were close to 3,000 participants that joined the challenge, even though few took time to enter the monthly challenges to win prizes.  A follow-on challenge was hosted in 2013 and there were 16+ FMQ Experts that provided free tutorials, which are still available.

Dec 28th update:  My SewCalGal blog will migrated  to www.quiltshopgal.com as of January lst  I am also hosting another FMQ Challenge in 2015, where monthly challenges will be released the lst of every month.  This challenge is open to beginners thru advanced who want to learn/improve their FMQ skills on a domestic machine, mid-arm or long arm machine and live anywhere in the world. Sponsors have also donated prizes which will be awarded monthly, to random participants.

Happy Quilting!

The first of the 2015 FMQ Challenges was released January lst.  My apologies for not sharing with this group before, I'm finding it difficult to keep all the balls in the air.  Those that follow my blog will always hear what is going on the fastest.  But, if you haven't already done so check out the January challenge and consider entering.  Very flexible challenge with multiple ways to enter.  You can do one or all of the options and get an entry to win prizes with every option you complete during the month of the challenge.  There is also an optional Flickr Group for non-bloggers to share photos and enter, as well as for all participants to share their work on any FMQ project, include those that may complete this monthly challenge at another time.  http://quiltshopgal.com/2015-free-motion-quilting-challenge-january/
