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:
MARCH - Hosting the Bee Creative Charity Fundraiser #FMQStitchAlong, which has a Mandala theme. There is an open linky party where everyone is invited to share any Mandala theme creativity that they created. As this is a fundraiser, there is also an option to purchase (donate) virtual raffle tickets to win prizes, including an option to purchase PDF Mandala templates that are excellent for FMQ designs, but you can also donate $$$, or purchase Mandala Machine Embroidery designs. 100% of your purchase/donation will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and with each $10 AU (~$7 US) donation you get a raffle ticket to win prizes....and there are great odds.
SUMMER (June-Sept) I'll be hosting a fun #FMQStitchAlong Challenge using The Ultimate Stencil Collection and optional Ultimate Background Stencil Collection, by Cindy Needham. Both collections are great for FMQ on pieced, applique, or wholecloth quilts and you can stitch any size project you want to work on and share what you stitch, or doodle, to enter to win prizes. Follow www.quiltshopgal.com for more info and I'll try to also share summary insights with this group.
