Enjoying What I'm Doing
I am really starting to enjoy what I'm doing on the quilting of this one! It's all kind of free style. I just do whatever I feel like doing in the blocks. No pressure.
I did some feathers (not very good ones, but that's okay too) in the strips around the squares of this block. The one on the right got a bit thread heavy. Then in the squares I just did a meandering line with some echoing around it.
Same here. Just some feathers and a goofy line with echoes.
I was really pleased with the way the micro stippling looked in this block. I did it in the center and in the yellow corners. Tossing around getting a different foot for Gemma and maybe some micro handles. Just a thought.
I'm using up a bunch of miscellaneous bobbins on this quilt. The pattern on the backing fabric is so busy, you really don't notice! The only thing I have noticed is that one of the colors seems to just lay there, not really go into the fabric. If this continues, I'll just avoid that one thread color.
