I know the gals in the classes had a fabulous time. There was a lot of laughter, and a lot of trying things out on the machines. Sue made you feel like you could do anything!
I was a little nervous when she was sharing quilts, while standing by the stairs. I was afraid that in her exuberance, she would take a step back and tumble down. However, she did not and all was well!
I spent a day and a half quilting cross-hatches on a quilt, using a ruler. I now know that I will need to charge more for this service, as it takes a LOT of time.
This is the front of the quilt, only not really that yellow.
Here is the back of the quilt. I used the computerized machine at work to do the 6-petal flowers, then brought it home to do the ruler work on the rest. So, about 2 full days of quilting.
So, I did an easy one, next. I baby quilt.
I found the design online with a Google search on baby boy quilts. It may have been a pantograph, but was easy to do free-motion.
I was so excited about the swirls, and how easy they were, I put on a minky quilt for my 15-year-old son. I played with swirling circles and squares, and loved the way it looked. I wanted to leave some puffiness to it, so I kept the quilting nice and big.
And the best part? It only took about an hour to quilt. Nice play time on a busy day. I'll bind it soon.
Have a great week and Happy Sewing!
