And here for June's challenge by Cindy

I began my challenge by doing the doodles 3 of them.

Next I began doodling on fabric. First I stitched my curvy line to break the piece up into sections.
Then I stiched in one section at a time. Or as Cindy says "Divide and Conquer"

Finished front of my 1st fabric doodle

Finished back of my 1st fabric doodle

I was able to complete my finial piece for the challenge today And I am very happy with it. 

Front I did the quilting on this side.

And this is the back side. The back is my favorite.

Again Thank you Cindy for your tutorial this month.

Humble yourselves therefore
under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:
Casting all your care upon him;
 for he careth for you.
I Peter 5:6,7

Wow! I love the back side of your apple basket piece! It has such a lace-like quality! I hope you'll post this photo on the Facebook page as well as the one you posted yesterday so everyone can see it. Spectacular!

I love all the doodling! I don't doodle, but this FMQ challenge is teaching me the value of it.
