Wow, its Friday!!!
Here's what's going on in the sewing room.
Sitting above the window.
Planning and experimenting with fabrics for a new pocketbook.
I have begun machine quilting the Picnic in the Park quilt and in fact have finished 1/2 of the quilting. I have to confess that my plan to try out various other free motion quilting designs has been postponed for now. I practiced making a simple vine with leaves on a practice swatch and made progress on it, but NOT nearly good enough to use on a real quilt, even if it is a scrap quilt. I tried quilting the vine with leaves on one square of the quilt and was not happy with it at all. I then spent an hour taking out the stitches. Yuck! I hated it.
So I returned to my old standby of simple meander quilting for now. I haven't given up on learning different quilting designs, however. You may see some different quilting designs on this blog soon.
