This month's Sew Cal Gal's FMQ Challenge tutorial was from Wendy Sheppard showing us her "Jester's Hat". I immediately loved the curly design and set out to add it to my repertoire of stitches. I always draw a new motif before I try to stitch it. With this design I drew and drew and drew it - in a word, I struggled.

|Adding the little flare in the middle of the hat seemed to help me remember where I was in the design. I also really like the look of this version.|
Thank you to Wendy Sheppard and Sew Cal Gal for the wonderful opportunity to learn fun new FMQ designs. I have completed all of the FMQ challenges to date.
Today I'm linking up with Sew Cal Gal for the August FMQ Challenge and with Happy Quilting for TNT Thursday.
