June's Free Motion Quilting Challenge

I finally got around to draw/doodle the June Free Motion Quilting Challenge.  I didn't even finish the page.  I did this at work (while I should have been working).

The teacher this month was Cindy Needham (of Linen Quilt fame).  I've taken 2 real live classes with her before, one was her Vintage Linen class at Road to California several years ago and this last year I was able to take her Thread Bar class which was also very helpful.  She's a sweet lady and a great teacher and I would and have recommended her to many people who want to machine quilt.  
This was a lot of fun but to fill in all those spaces is very time consuming so I guess this would be labors of love if I decided to do a big quilt filling in all of this.

I've also finished two quilts except for the binding.  I plan on finishing that at a mini-Cambria retreat this weekend with some friends.  I also am bringing about 4 new projects to work on - hopefully I won't run out of things to do at this retreat like I did at the retreat at Anna's 2 weekends ago.  :)

Thanks for looking.

How lucky to have taken classes from Cindy! I hope to have that opportunity someday. Your quilting is just beautiful - I especially love that paisley-type design at the bottom center - very effective.

Wow! I can hardly wait to see it in person. I want to see the bottom center up close.
