August FMQ Challenge

Boy this month slipped away from me......
I only had the chance to do a little practicing with this months challenge and I promise to do more. It is a fun little hat to stitch and with the middle little flame shape it lends itself to more quilting options.
Thanks Wendy for a fun tutorial on a fun little hat that we all can play with .
I can see it a a basic fill on a few of the little quilts that I like to make and give as gifts. A good place to practice and build a skill.

  1. Looking good, and a good idea to use contrasting thread, it makes it easier to pick out the hats!! I didn't try it with the middle flame - I don't think I am co-ordinated enough!!

  2. Really looks great Annette ,I didn't get around to practicing this one at all :-(
