FMQ 2012 – January Challenge (Leaf Pattern)

As you all know that I am participating in SewCalGal’s 2012 Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) Challenge.  I have only just got myself organised so I thought if I am going to do this then I should give all the FMQ designs a go.  After all this is all a learning experience.


The January Challenge was set out by Frances Moore and I loved the way she actually went over the process of how to create a flowing leaf pattern.  I gave it a go and here are my efforts.  I took the pics at night so they may not be too clear but you will get the jist.


In the first picture I made an all over leaf pattern to get the flow of it.  I still need a lot work at evenness, but at least I was happy to get the design all over.


With my second picture I wanted to try to FMQ around a motif, which proved to be not too difficult but needs a lot of practice to get evenness in the shape of the leaves.
