Yesterday after receiving and avidly reading my new book on quilting from Diane Gaudynsky, I tried a couple of different things.
If I get even partway as good as Diane...I will be more than happy
My quilting is VERY shaky!
The photo on the right was me playing with hexagons..trying to work out how to quilt my POTC's. Tis the fabric I thought I may use for the backing...but not too sure now.. Havn't machine quilted for a time now, and I REALLY do need the practise. The larger square on the right was also a possiblity for the backing...but not now. I tried a couple of differnet threads on it, but am still not happy.The lighter thread was better I thought.
Next week I am going to purchase some monfilament thread..to see what that is like and do some more samples. and get some finer needles if I can.
I will complete a couple of my spare POTC's to play on, when I am more confident what I may be doing.
Have found some UFO's that are ready to quilt - so may play some more today...then back to the POTC's
