FMQ Challenge

We were given a bonus FMQ Challenge at the end of last month....I thought this would be the end for me...hahaha. But; you know it went quite well. Hosted by Darlene at SewCalGal...and tutorial by Susan Brubaker was actually a fun experience for me.

We were instructed to take photographs, then sketch it, put it on fabric and FMQ it. ow much easier could it get,right???   lol Here is my little piece of art; yeah right!

The photograph....
The sketch...
The sample of FMQ...

I transferred it to the fabric with Don's method back a few months ago; using tule.
This will be linked up to SewCalGal so that you can look at other works if you like.
