Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
For those are interested in Free Motion Quilting on a home sewing machine.
Latest Activity: Aug 25
This group began as part of a 2012 FMQ Challenge, which is now over, but tutorials from 14 different FMQ Experts are still available for free to use to learn/improve your FMQ Skills. There were over 2,000 participants in this challenge, with about 1,000 that joined a group on Facebook that allowed them to share insights.
While I didn't want to replicate the 2012 FMQ Challenge, based on interest, I did want to release 4-6 tutorials in 2013 that built on the challenges in 2012. Currently 4 of the 6 2013 Challenges have been released and I'm working on getting the final two Challenges released this month (My). I will try to update this group when new challenges are released, but those that follow my blog will always be the first to know (sorry, it just takes awhile to update a variety of sources, so my primary focus is blog updates).
And, the main page for this event will also be updated periodically, to show current links and info: http://www.sewcalgal.blogspot.com/p/free-motion-quilt-challenge.html
