QuiltShopGal is a BIG fan of Angela Walters and somewhat embarrassed to have not heard about this Free-Motion Quilting (FMQ) Challenge earlier. But hey, it isn’t too late to join the fun, learn/improve your FMQ skills, as well as win prizes. Here is the scoop:
Angela Walters kicked off a FMQ Challenge that is free to everyone to participate in and appropriate for quilters of all levels.
While this challenge officially kicked off February 12th, there is still time to join, learn, have fun, learn, win prizes, learn….thru April 16th. Plus, there is an optional free quilt pattern you can use to showcase all the designs showcased in this challenge. But this challenge also allows you to apply these designs on just about anything you can think of.
Here is the schedule for this FMQ Challenge, aka a Quilting Along, hosted by Angela Walters:
Each week, Angela is releasing a new free video on her YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0pG03YOX2DSwn8Se32TnNQ. She’ll also be sharing insights on her blog every week @ Quilting Is My Therapy.
Again, I think this is an excellent way for you to learn/improve your FMQ skills, as well as have fun and I hope you’ll consider joining this challenge. Even if you only do one or two of the weekly challenges, your FMQ skills will improve. Of course, they’ll improve more if you participate in all of the weekly challenges.
For those interested, even if you don’t have time to participate in this challenge right now, I recommend you subscribe to her YouTube Channel, as well as her blog, so that you don’t miss out. While she’ll have a new update (e.g. blog post & video) which should be released today, it won’t take long for you to watch the two videos that have already been released on her YouTube channel, as well as come up to speed via her blog post released this past week, where you can find links to watch the videos, download a supplies list, as well as the free pattern: http://www.quiltingismytherapy.com/2018/02/07/free-motion-challenge-quilting-along/
Links for weekly updates to-date are:
And while learning/improving your FMQ can be rewarding and fun on its’ own, Angela also has prizes that she’ll be giving away each week. Sound like fun? It does to me. Thus, I wanted to ensure all my quilty friends new about it. I hope you’ll join the fun.
