Doin' more than meandering!



Whew! I'm bushed. I've been trying to catch up on things and have been sewing non-stop for the last few days. I had to get my Tropical Feathered Star done for my new condo as we are going there tomorrow to get it decorated. I was a little afraid to load it on Zoe, (my HQ!) as I wanted to do more than meandering. I finally traced some stencils on it and kind of sketched out my feathers. It made me nervous because I had to do feathers sideways, rather than from top to bottom like I normally do. So be gentle, you long-armers--it was my first attempt! I'm trying to challenge myself to do more than meander, loop-de-loop stuff on the big machine. The machine goes so fast, it's scary sometimes so I fall back into what I feel comfortable with doing. I have a lot more quilts to practice on now.

All of these quilts are just beautiful. You have been very very busy. Your quilting on the feathered star is wonderful.

The quilting looks good to me - I get hung up on doing pantographs myself because I make so many scrappy quilts. It seems that the quilts that call for more custom quilting sit on the shelf longer.
