In practicing free motion, I wanted to come up with my own design and do something different.

Great job Steph.  Did you draw your design on the fabric first or just wing it?

Karen, Marge and CC, Thank you so much.

Marge,

I did use a water soluble blue marker to draw out the design first. I had doodles on paper first until I drew one that I liked.When I was finished I just spritzed the lines away. I also took some fabric markers and went lightly over the center are to give it a little more depth.

Steph this is beautiful!  I can't even imagine being able to do this.  How long have you been doing FMQ?

Marie,

Not long and not much. I had a couple practice sandwiches and did a simple meandering on my sisters quilt. From there I wanted to focus on using practice for projects I could use and not waste, so that is what started my doodling and then to a stencil.

You turned an ordinary sunflower into a work of art. It is simply gorgeous.  All the detail is beautiful ! Marlene
