April 2012 Free-Motion Quilting Challenge

I finished my April FMQ Challenge hosted by SewCalGal.  The goal was to try a new marking technique for our free-motion quilting.  We were supposed to lay a piece of tulle over the pattern and trace it.  Then lay the tulle over the desired quilting material and trace it again.  We were given a specific pattern to use.  Easy enough.  Here’s my piece. 


I then decided it needed a bit more quilting before I could call it finished.  I call it Spanish Sunrise.


I also sandwiched my mother’s quilt.  All ready to go now.  Tomorrow I have an appointment to do my taxes.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh?

What did you FMQ today?
