So quite a while ago (er maybe two years) I bought a new machine so that I could start machine quilting. But somehow whenever I finished piecing a project I always gravitated to what I felt comfortable with and finished them by hand. I made some place mats a while ago to use as test pieces but still hadn’t had a go. This week I decided to stop dilly dallying and get on with it. I got out my manual, fitted my walking foot and was pleasantly surprised!
Next up was to try free motion quilting. I attempted a feather and leaf to mirror the motifs in my fabric. I need a lot more practice, well maybe a huge amount more but I was still thrilled with my first attempt.
