|As far as I got last time I worked on it.|
I spent a little time working on a quilting sketch today, and then transferring/repeating it onto the quilt.
|I traced the outline of one of the stars and then use a pencil to try out different ideas.|
I added some more lines, and planned some free motion feathers. Once the kids were in bed I got to quilt on it finally! But you know how something weird happens when you're quilting/sewing and you don't realize why until later? Well for no reason my machine made very small stitches in one area, as though the feed dogs weren't working correctly, but it passed quickly. Then I decided I should actually clear off my sewing table, instead of just pushing things out of the way when the quilt drug them around...and found this:
|Whoops! Quilted that right in.|
Haha, yeah, note to self: clean tables off before quilting a sticky quilt. Anyway, I'm quite happy with how it is progressing! Here's where I finished for the evening:
|I am quilting on the pink side with black thread, and have pink thread in the bobbin (it's flipped over so you can see both sides in this photo). Not exactly easy to get the tension just right.|
