The worktable- wow
I have gotten all the straight line quilting done on this lap quilt. I used the guide on the walking foot to make sure I stayed straight through the bigger squares.
I changed the thread from variegated blue to yellow and zig zagged a few lines thought the gold squares. Then I free motioned in the largest squares. I went around the rooster and added flowers. I also free motioned a rooster in one blue square. kinda fun!
Before I bind the first quilt I was anxious to get started on the sampler. I've stabilized the straight seams with invisible thread. I'm doing the sashing because I have the right colour. I may need to buy something for the actual blocks. I want subtle when I try the curved outlines in the sampler blocks.
I really like MQing and I can see I've gotten rusty so I'll need to keep my skills up. It is very true- use it or lose it!
