July FMQ Challenge

Barely getting my entry into the Sew Cal Gal challenge before the end of the month this time! I almost didn't make it. Between my daughter's upcoming wedding and a huge project at work, I've had very little time to quilt in July. And my entry shows it.

 It's amazing how fast you can lose the feel for something that's dependent on muscle memory. I really felt I had turned the corner last month, but this month I found myself very rusty - lines not straight, curves not smooth. I know I really just need daily practice. So, I hope I've learned the lesson and will do better next month.

This month's expert was Angela Waters. Her FMQ is amazing - I'm going to have to keep working on this overlapping segments pattern. I really liked it. I need to do more drawing on paper as well. In any case, here is my entry for the month of July. See you in August, hopefully with a better entry,

  1. Hey, I think your lines look good. I practiced a bunch and it didn't help my lines. : )
