Free-Motion Quilt Challenge 2012 June

At last I have finished my last  piece for this months Free Motion Quilt Challenge with SewCalGal
and with our June tutor Cindy Needham

The sun came out between showers so I took a few photos.

Back - where I played a bit with a different colours at first and tried to get my tension right - but didnt really!

The front again.

Now I need to get onto something else..
I have had such fun this month, but still hesitating about using my silk fabric.
It was lovely too last night as I was able to sit and chat on Skype to my friend Joanne ( Threadhead)
in Canada  for quite some time.  It was great to have the company while doing the binding

Thank you to SewCalGal and to Cindy for all your inspiration and help.

The great thing is - I get my Nessie back later today ( my 820 Bernina)
I have really really missed her!

Totally exquisite! Interested to know what sewing machine you used for this since your Bernina 820 was having her spa treatment.

I've been a lurker for 6 months due to bad health but I have enjoyed immensely watching your quilting boundaries expand. You are producing some stunning FM work!
