You can read about the Challenge here. Anyway, it did seem to be a great way to learn more about FMQ and get some practice, so I took the pledge and started off the new year viewing the first tutorial, which was a lovely leaf pattern by Frances Moore.
After viewing the tutorial several times to get the feel of the pattern, I started by drawing it over and over. I drew this pattern for the first week or so. I wanted to get it into my brain first, then into my hands, hoping it would then come out more easily when sewing. Here's a sample of my drawing:
|Early, somewhat messy drawing.|
|Later Drawing. Getting better!|
Still not completely smooth, but much better, I think. I just need to keep practicing. I am having fun with this, just wish I had more time!
So this is my first entry in the FMQ Challenge. Looking forward to next month's tutorial! Bring it on!
