I jumped on the July Challenge from sewcalgal early this month. I happened to be finished with the last 3 quilts and hadn't yet started anything, so the timing was right. I also have received my copy of "Free-Motion Quilting" with Angela Walters (who is the July expert) so the mojo was working!
This is an AWESOME book and I highly recommend it for your quilting library.
I have been pouring over this book ever since I received it 2 weeks ago. It is so well written, well illustrated and highly inspirational. This month's lesson/challenge is also in the book, so it was familiar to me and I had already decided to try it.
This method of dividing the quilting area into smaller sections builds on last month's challenge, just in a different, more formal way. Making the smaller sections with straight lines and filling in was easy and fun, and the contrast of the border of the tiles with the swirl filler makes a great texture.
I love how it looks and I am already planning to use this in a flimsy I am preparing to quilt.
