My ‘new’ mid-arm has been humming right along…with two more charity quilts DONE for a total of four quilts completed! So fast and getting easier…and more importantly, with each quilt I have learned something new about the quilting process! It now takes me about 15 minutes to load a quilt onto the frame…instead of the two plus hours that it took me the first time! :o)
Let’s zoom in for a close-up…More loops and stars…
Not perfect by any means…but improvements noted! Baby steps for sure… In between these quilts I also did a ‘practice muslin sandwich quilt’ so that I could practice stippling and meandering. I’m not quite ready to do that on a baby quilt yet! A few more sandwiches to go…?
Love the fourth quilt…a scrappy baby quilt! Remember these quilts were made by volunteers from the Cowichan Heritage Guild. My job is to quilt them and hopefully, not screw them up TOO badly!…And in doing that I get to practice…practice…practice!
Loops and hearts this time.
On this quilt I discovered that when your machine skips a stitch it’s time to put in a new needle! So many things to watch out for while free motion quilting! With a new needle in, all was right with the quilting world!
AND it’s on to baby quilt number five! With number five I am going to experiment with my Cruise Control and stitch length and I am going to quilt in sections rather than rows. Wish me luck!
I hope all is right in your little quilting world! Thanks for popping in to peek over my shoulder!
Have a super sewing Saturday and Happy Quilting!!
