The baby quilt came off the frame this morning. It's very amateurish, but the baby will never know. I practiced a few things ... a gentle meander with some loops,
... some wishbones,
... and some butterfly loops.
I attempted to follow the zigzags in the panel, not very successfully. I did best with the channel-lock straight lines.
Anyway, it's off the frame, waiting to be trimmed and binding added. Whew! This afternoon I filled a bobbin and loaded a new quilt all by myself.
I did a test run with the new bobbin and it appears either the top tension is too tight, or the bottom is too loose. A problem for another day.
The Advent treat for Day 17 was a holiday refrigerator magnet. Our GDIL is a wizard with her paper-cutting machine.
I think your quilting looks good! You have to start somewhere, right? Hope you get the tension issue figured out - I don't think that is an unusual issue, from what I hear. And thank you for the Christmas card, Libby!ReplyDelete
that is great - and yes you can figure out the tension another day! I hear a lot have to figure that one out. The quilting looks great.ReplyDelete
Libby, the quilting looks great! Tension is always an issue but I know you will figure it out! I love your tree quilt too and can't wait to see it! Sending hugs!ReplyDelete
The quilting looks good. It does take some time to pick up a new skill, you are doing really well. Happy quilting this week.ReplyDelete
