Lines, Circles and S-Curves "homework"

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I didn't skip actually DOING my homework! Added 3-9-2013: I went ahead and embellished this piece with a pink iridescent Shiva Paintstik, added binding and will be sending it off as a donation to AAQI . What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with it.

What you will need

  • FMQ using "So Fine" 50 wt. thread by Superior Threads on a cotton fabric with Warm and Natural Batting. This project was supposed to be done using a 60 wt thread like "Bottom Line"
  • but I don't have any (yet).

Q&A with AZWendyG

MariaGirgis asked:
Beautiful, I have a lot of practicing to do before I am anywhere near that.
AZWendyG answered:
Practice is exactly what it takes, Jetje. Keep at it and you can do it too. It took me months of practice before I had ANYTHING that looked acceptable. I've been at it for over 3 years now, and still learning tons! This class has introduced me to some great new concepts I need to work on.
Foxienana asked:
impressive, is that cotton? Which batting did you use?
AZWendyG answered:
Yes, the fabric is cotton, the thread is a 50 wt. poly embroidery thread, and the batting is Warm and Natural cotton. I need to get some more Hobbs wool so I can try Cindy's gourmet batting recipe!
donarae asked:
been thinking of doing something like this, great job. I have to try it now. Have you taken any other classes? I have started a few and have so little time for all I wont to try. At 70 I don't have that much time left.
AZWendyG answered:
I haven't taken any other Craftsy classes yet and only one freemotion quilting class at my local quilt shop about 3 years ago. I've been doing a lot of learning from books, DVD's, youtube and other web sites, but mostly it comes down to a lot of practice and trying out new things all the time.
