Although my mother taught quilting when I was young, I just really started getting into the hobby about 10 years ago. Every since, I've been collecting fabric and making quilt tops (notice I didn't say finished quilts). I have purchased a Viking Megaquilter, but am still an early novice with a lot of work to do.
The challenge is out, lets see how many of us can join the wonderful new campaign called Stitching for Pink !!! Starts today until 30 October. Its gonna be so much fun with 10 projects to complete. Come on Embroiderers lets unite and join the fight against Breast Cancer !!!
Hi Julie! This is Paper Plate Mari! I'm back working at Connecting Theads so I'm blogging now and Judy gave me your name to contact you! Look forward to hearing from you! Oh, by the way, am I doing OK there with you???? Mari
I can do a pretty mean free motion meander. One of my hard things to do is to keep my movements steady so I keep my stitches more even. Even with the stitch regulator if you go too fast you get big stitches. I tried it out on a couple different machines I saw at a show recently. I just need a smooth flow, and that is getting easier one heck of a lot faster than following patterns! I like to plug in the iPod and quilt!
I made the switch when I came to the conclusion it's time to move on about the dog. I did this quilt last summer and hung it by the front door...since I finished it in August I call it Hot August Nights. I tried my garden shed pics but they didn't come across as good as I hoped. Good to talk to you. I hope Sarah gets a nap...for your sanity.
Hey, Julie, I was headed out of this website when I ran afoul of your mom's page which led me to you. Are you doing anything on your quilter yet? I have decided to not follow patterns and just free motion. I can always add in designs as I feel like it. Marilee bought some new fancy quilter with the Qbot, a computer add-on that stitches the design for you! I could get one too, for a measly $3400! I'll wait.
I'm off to bed.
