Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
So, I finally drew a pattern on a quilt and quilted it...I am very bad at following curvy lines with that little round hopping foot. But the quilt is done and it will keep a child on the reservation warm.
So..now I"m trying to follow straight lines. My first day of doing this proved I'm much worse at following a seam line than I was at following a curving line.
Today I tried again.. my poor Irish quilt. I have to say I'm infinitely better now than I was at the start.. which isn't saying much, lol. It couldn't possibly get worse. I had planned to sell this quilt but I think now it's gonna either go to the res for a kid who likes green or to whichever of my nieces and nephews feels they need it. I now some people sell quilts that are not quilted really well, but I just can't do it.
I keep reminding myself that there was a time I sewed everything badly and I can only improve with practice..but gosh it's painful to be so bad, lol.
