quilting is so much fun…


I mean, who wouldn’t have fun stitching a picture into a quilt, with the top tension looking GREAT!! and the bottom tension looking like heck? Who wouldn’t love to do that??

Even more, who wouldn’t want to spend much more time picking stitches than putting them in?



How’s you quilting going today? Are you having fun? What are you working on? I’d love to hear about it in comments.

      Nope, really not fun. I haven’t gotten into audio books. I’m kinda torn, as I’d like to get a lot more reading into my life, but I also really like the quiet of nothing on. Thanks a lot for reading and commenting today.

    Ouch! Maybe you need a backside view mirror so you can check on the underside’s doings before you stitch a whole lot that needs to be removed. One advantage of FMQ on a domestic machine is such messes tend to get noticed sooner.

      Yes. I had done a fairly large amount of quilting with checking regularly, but it going well. Then I did this stretch that looked great, but was kind of a mess. 😦 And since then, I can’t get it back to the quality I want. Will work more on it — after a nap.

    I can totally relate. Not something I look forward to. I am very a tuned to the sounds my machine makes when it is stitching properly and when it is not. This comes from years of experience. Most of the time I can head it off early. On those unfortunate occasions when I don’t I have to tell myself to relax, take many deep breaths then proceed. It’s definitely not something I like to do. So sorry! ;(
