May FMQ Challenge

The FMQ challenge on SewCalGal was by Leah Day and featured 2 well done, informative videos. In the first video Leah talks about tools she used in her free-motion adventures. She also offers such great insights stressing the importance of practice and trying a variety of tools, threads and materials.

The stitches Leah taught are 2 variations on meandering stipples. Both are referred to as foundational designs.

The first is a double stipple:

It makes a great texture and I found it fun, easy and relaxing.

The second is called a railroad track stipple. I like it too!

I will be adding these stitches to my toolbox. I am really enjoying this year-long feature and learning a ton. Many thanks to SewCalGal for organizing this and to the awesome teachers for sharing their knowledge. This is really a great way to learn and practice to improve FMQ skills!
