My friend Irene just wrote to me and said how much she was enjoying my blog. Then I remembered I hadn't posted today. Thank you Irene......you woke me up. Hmm, maybe I shouldn't be thanking her. Yes, I do, I really do thank her.
Machine quilting..............on your machine............Take classes! Our guild offered two classes last year from someone we know that is fantastic at machine quilting. The classes filled instantly. Once you take that class it is a matter of practice, practice and more practice. I have some tips that may help you out. I have been practicing and believe it or not I am getting better at it.
1. I sandwiched a bunch of muslin squares together and I keep them at my sewing machine. Before I start to machine quilt, I take them out and practice on them. It gives me my rhythm and better to do errors on scrap than the quilt.
2. Just like in driving a car.................slow down around the curves! Best piece of advise I've been given.
See what happens when you rush your quilting.....you get spider legs. That's my name for them.
