Once again SewCalGal started us off on another journey of FMQ, she managed to get some wonderful teachers to give us yet more challenges through the year with the view to improving our own FMQ and to win prizes. I am always up for improving my FMQ so had to give these a go. Following are the challenges set for the year by the various teachers, just below that is a link where you can go to my original post if you click on it and see what I did, I have put a picture on here just to remind you and myself of what I did. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed doing these challenges, it was touch and go whether I would get them done, hubby said I was too busy chasing other people up [being bossy again] to get theirs done and forgot all about my own, funnily enough I completely forgot one – the last one – I think I misread the information and didn’t do it, so these past two days I have been frantically sewing to get it all done. Lesson learned, read instructions more carefully!!
The information that went with this challenge was —(Deadline to enter is August lst, whereas all others are October 31st. This deadline is required as your FMQ piece will be sold at IQF Houston to help raise funds to fight Alzheimers) — I have checked on a regular basis and see this piece of mine is still not sold…oh dear.
Ha ha this is me folks. I am not famous like the other ladies in the Challenge, just a housewife like you but I absolutely love making Fabric Postcards, when SewCalGal asked if I would be willing to do this challenge, I was so proud to have been asked. Thank you so much. Please click on the link and it will take you to lots of postcards made for the challenge and since last years challenge throughout my Blog. I set up a swap group on Facebook and we swap Postcards each month. Great fun.

The link above will take you to ALL the challenges I did last year, if you scroll down a long way – there were a lot of challenges, you will come across the one I did with Patsy Thompson.
No link as this is the piece I got totally muddled on as I had misread the information, I still am not sure if I have done right but hey-ho not to worry any excuse to do yet more F<Q I say. This was finished this morning at 11:30 am, I was in total panic folks but so determined to get it done , I thoroughly enjoyed doing this piece, as I read the instructions – yet again – I assumed we were to make a piece using FMQ but doing our own thing but showing how our FMQ had improved since we started last year 2012. I hope when you have finished looking at all these pieces of work you will agree with me when I say I feel I have improved 100 fold.
Thank you to everyone for all these amazing challenges I would never have dreamed I could do such work, special thanks to SewCalGal, without her none of this would have happened. Hubby is now amazed at what I can do with FMQ and on that note I best finish.
Good luck to everyone who has entered these Challenges to win some fabulous prizes. Read all about those here….
