Modern FMQ QAL: August

Since there is no official July CJMQG (though members are having a party - check Bigtent for details!), we are not having a FMQ challenge for July. Our next meeting is at the beginning of August, though, so that is when you can bring in results from the August challenge, share, and get in the running for the monthly prize.

This month, we are quilting up flowers and petals. There are lot of motifs to choose from; I quilted orange peels in addition to using some of the motifs suggested on the Google Doc. Here's another one (confident beginner level) that I stumbled upon recently by Christina Cameli.

Hopefully you're staying cool and turning on that sewing machine once in a while! In August, Elaine and I will be giving a presentation about quilt-as-you-go (the final steps to putting the sampler together). I will also be writing up a document to post online for reference and for those following along online. See you at the August meeting!
