Finally I got back to work machine quilting the small baby quilt that I had taken a break from the other day as it was giving me fits. I decided I didn’t like how I was working it – I was making too much work for myself. I have to remind myself sometimes when making a quilt for charity that I do not have to put hours and hours into it. What I might consider mediocre work someone else will think is fantastic. So I took a couple hours to undo the machine quilting that I had started and then repined and now I have it half done! I truly was making too much work for myself. I was going to outline all the sashing and cornerstones and all the blocks plus white spaces – really too much work for one that doesn’t do free motion but works with the walking foot.
Now I am doing slightly curvy lines and happy with it.
The back – sometimes you can see the lines better on the back.
Working on a few more hexies as well. Linking to Tweety Loves Quilting.
I have a shelf close to the sewing area in the living room now dedicated to the sewing/computer stuff – I’m sure it will be over flowing soon. Mike has been getting into his contract job all week and has not had time to clear out anymore of the sewing room – I hope we can make progress on that this weekend – but I have a feeling this one little room will be a project lasting him 6 months – I do truly hope that is not the case as I want to get back to my three roller frame. I have not pushed getting into quilting this week, I had nice weather to enjoy for awhile and just getting settled into several new sewing areas has been an adjustment – I hope to start quilting again this weekend and then of course I will be taking off for the second half of the month soon so I will have a long break anyhow – I well be back to quilting in February for sure.
