FMQ Challenge for June/Friday Night Sew-In

I dedicated this Friday Night Sew-In to getting my Free Motion Quilting Challenge done for June. Cindy Needham provided a wonderful tutorial explaining many different aspects of free motion quilting. I printed out her whole tutorial and feel I'll be using this in the future. She talked about thread, lighting, tools, etc. She covered so many topics! It was wonderful!

I am so grateful for the Friday Night Sew-In. I kept putting this off thinking I didn't have enough time to work on it. This evening set aside for sewing was perfect for me! I finally did have enough time and I really wanted to sit down and accomplish something! Thank you, Heidi! It was my first time participating but it won't be my last.

Thank you, Cindy and SewCalGal for the opportunity to improve my free motion skills. I could only meander when I first started back in January. I feel like I'm really learning new skills that I'll be able to put to good use!

Dying to see what everyone else did tonight! I'll be checking that Flickr group!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
