I actually found it easier to sew than draw - go figure! Even so, I still need to work on the consistency of my stitch length and spacing. Some of the jesters' hats are pretty wonky, but I found it easier to do big round hats with lots of swirls. I think the really wonky ones happened when I was trying to get out of an area.
Here is my entry for the August challenge. Thanks Wendy for the tutorial.

I am making a quilt for my sister - still need to add a six inch white border after the red border. It should end up being 230 x 260 cm. I'm planning on quilting the white squares with some of the motifs from Don Linn's book, Sophisticated Stitches, but I can't figure out how to print any of the motifs from the Kindle version of the book. Any ideas anyone?
I'll also try a feather border in the outer white border. Does anyone have any other suggestions for quilting this?
