FMQ - Ann Fahl inspired

It's been a while since I posted about my FMQ.  I have been following the FMQ Challenge at SewCalGal's site.  Trouble is, I have not had much of a chance to actually practice the FMQ until recently.  Now I'm spending some time catching up with the tutorials. 
Here is my practice piece for the loopy pattern that was provided during March when the session was lead by Ann Fahl.

I finally went to town on this piece I call Mentors' Flowers.  It was a sample piece mentors in my Guild put together to demonstrate the various methods of applique.

I taught my favorite technique; needle turn.  Each of the mentors designed a flower to demo their specific technique.  I designed the purple tulip.  Here is a close up of the quilting.

Now I'm off to try the FMQ technique from April with Don Lin.
