I'm sure many of you know that Sewcalgal has again come up with a few challenges for this year. So I thought I'd join in, or rather at least give them ago.
So I have been playing around, seeing what I come up with.
The first challenge is Threadplay. Now I've only tried it out, and this is what I've done so far. I would like to make another piece with different colour threads.
This little sampler measures 6 x 6 inches, it will not be the piece I'm going to 'hand in' as part of the challenge. I want to practice a bit more of course and see if I can come up with something totally different using the same technique. Do you think my thread buildup is too dense?
Another challenge is Feathers. I'm just playing around with feathers, and different types of FMQ designs, to get a feel of what works and what doesn't. This looks like a HOT MESS! Then again, it is only to see what will work good together.
Once I'm going to make the 'real' sampler, I will use thread that blends, clearly using a darker thread is not a good idea.
I'm linking up to FMQ Friday with Leah Day @ The Free Motion Quilting Project and with can-i-get-whoop-whoop @ Confessions of a fabric addict
