Design Wall Monday - 2/29/16

Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. -
At Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))


On my wall today -

Three more FMQ practice blocks -

To play with this week - ;))

I finished up the spirals on the one I showed you the other day
And the other two blocks -

My "square spirals" are kinda wonky -

And I obviously have trouble with straight lines -

But I'm learning a whole new set of complex skills -

So I'm going easy on myself - ;))

I still have several more lessons -

And all of the blocks on the wall to do -

After I play with these - ;))

I talked about this class - HERE -

PLEASE NOTE - If you are interested - you could go directly to the Craftsy site and sign up there - but if you sign up using the link on Gene's blog - he is an "affiliate" - and he will get compensated - so why not help out a fellow quilter/blogger/friend - ;))

I wholeheartedly recommend this class -

To ANYONE who wants to learn how to Free-Motion-Quilt -

Or ANYONE who wants a refresher course on the basics -

Or ANYONE who wants to get into a "zen" mode - and just PLAY - ;))

NO stress -

NO judging yourself or your skills -

Just the basics -

And LOTS of practice - ;))


After I drafted and scheduled the above post to go "live" this morning -

I played around a little more and made some "pebbles" - ;))

I LOOOOOOVE "pebbles" -

Not that I'm any good at them YET -

But I wanted to show you the back of my practice piece -

Take a look at this TEXTURE -

Don't you just want to pet it? - ;))

And - unless you get up real close -

You can hardly see all of my "boo-boos" -

That - for now - I'm calling "design choices" - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I am amazed at how well you are controlling your scale. I have problems with that. Your straight lines will most likely get better, but I wouldn't worry about it. It looks fine. As for your pebbles, they look great.
In another class I took the instructor said "miss your lines" (on purpose) because it looks more organic and like a sketch. My pebbles generally have that -regardless of what I intend.

You will look back in a few months and suprise yourself with how far you have come :) loving seeing your progress from the sidelines :)
