What a wonderful Sunday. I have finished quilting the gift. I will be dropping it off in the next two days .... and am ensured that it shall reach its intended recipient this upcoming weekend.
Process talk....well I wanted a stippling effect, but not the meandering, so I did a pebble type all over design. This was my first attempt at feathering...smiles...I have learned a few things about the machine quilting process as well. For starters, my machine is very hearty but also delicated. Yeah, I know sounds strange. She collects the dust from the thread and the batting very fast, which then requires a bobbin casing and feed dog cleaning at every bobbin change. I guess this is a good thing, as it ensures a clean working machine. She is indeed a smooth machine. So far I must say I am very happy with my selection. We are becoming fast friends.
So here are some pics at the Gift Quilt. I hope you enjoy.
