Cindy from Fluffy Sheep Quilting had the phenomenal idea of practicing FMQ techniques and sharing everyone's results on Friday. Thus FMQ Friday is born. Some of you may remember my FMQ run a few weeks ago with Hummingbirds & Hexagons? I received so many amazing tips and have been putting them to good use.
My number one tip? This is all about practice. I read somewhere that 10 minutes a day for a month and bam, all of a sudden your FMQ is worlds away from where it started. So when Lucy emailed me about FMQ Friday I thought - pssht - I am joining these ladies and jumping on this FMQ bandwagon!
When I saw this weeks
challenge Shadow Waves sample I knew I had to draw it out to get my head wrapped around the going back and forth in waves...
|My Quick Sketch|
Um, I love that Cindy considered this pattern Shadow Waves starting "at the super basics." HA! Man Cindy - you have some high hopes let me tell you!!! You obviously have not seen my FMQ before.
THIS IS MY RESULT.
Hahahahahhaaaahahahaaaa... Oh man, this is wiping tears from my eyes laughing/crying. I hope you all get a kick out of this because it is really me at a very new low. Dang! I was going to start again, have another go but I thought no no no...I have to be straight here and show you what I did... Oh geez.
Okay. Rallying. I am going to do this thing if it kills me. I am going to come back and sew Shadow Waves in, well let's be reasonable, 2 months. Let's see how it is THEN. Hmmph. So there Shadow Waves take That! [and yes, there was a Latina head-roll during that proclamation.]
Linking up to Fluffy Sheep Quilting's FMQ Friday!
