First attempt at machine quilting: Um, it’s done?

February 22, 2010 at 8:03 pm Leave a comment

I decided to attempt machine quilting on a small project first – good call. I still like the block, and I still hung it up because it looks OK from a distance. 🙂

Lessons learned: Didn’t pin in enough places first. Didn’t iron flat enough. Didn’t leave enough fabric from the backing to do a neat binding – instead it is sloppy and stretched.

Oh well. Several more attempts and I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it.

Do not look too closely, and ignore the scuff marks on the walls 🙂
