I've been using the new Juki to doodle on scraps. Today I got brave enough to try to use it like I would use it I was really quilting something so I pounced a stencil. I bought a few new ones in anticipation of getting this thing under control.
Oh, yeah. I had a few false starts-tension issues again but for the most part it was doing what I hoped on the front and the back. It's still scary though.
I have three sides of the Welcome quilt done now. I think I am going to be using the walking foot to quilt it though. I am not brave enough to try any free motion on it. I've worked too hard on it to ruin it now.
I just finished hand quilting the second block of Daddio's Dresden. Two down, four to go. Then all that sashing. Golly.
The quilting looks beautiful. You've come a long way in a short time ........you got this!ReplyDelete
When I first started doing the free motion quilting, I bought a panel quilt to play with and then I could use it for cat beds, etc if it was messed up! You just need to spend time doing it-the hand quilting is going well!ReplyDelete
Looks good to me.....I think you've mastered it!!!ReplyDelete
Depending on what your plans are for the Dresden plate sashing, you can "cheat" and machine that part. Mom did that with one of her quilts - hand quilting on the squares, but machine on the borders.ReplyDelete
So beautiful! Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!!ReplyDelete
They are all SO beautiful. You always amaze me. I know, I say that all of the time, but it's true! Only 10 more miles to Miss Piper!!!! We're almost there!ReplyDelete
Not sure HOW you manage to keep up with all your craft loves. I think the swirly quilting is wonderful. The Welcome quilt is really pretty and interesting to the eyeReplyDelete
