Quilting Alert! Quilting Alert!
I have now officially machine quilted – successfully. The mod patchwork baby quilt from my Quilting 101 class taught by Melanie is now quilted! I am beyond ecstatic! So, from my previous disaster with machine quilting to now, I can say that a walking foot is a god-send, and that it helps to keep the weight of the quilt on my upper body. It was also more than helpful to have Melanie there to tell me that every thing was A-OK.
For this quilt we practiced straight line quilting a quarter inch from each seam. I love how this looks on the front:
My husband loved how it looked on the back. I thought, great, could have just used this fabric on both sides – it would have been a whole lot easier! Haha.
I just love the little boxes that form in the corners:
Now that it’s quilted, I have a confession.
I was afraid of quilting.
But, I’m really afraid of binding.
I’ve bought the fabric and I’ll make the binding this weekend.
We’ll see how this goes…
On a brighter note, I can start quilting some of the tops I’ve made! However, I have this sick addiction to buying fabric and making quilt tops. We’ll see if I can overcome!
Happy WiP Wednesday, y’all. I can’t wait to see what you’re up to…
