I have to admit that I was bad. I had every intention of posting about day 1 yesterday but by the time I got home from work I barely got the quilting done!
After seeing some of the beautiful work y'all are doing I'm almost ashamed of mine. But I am a very much a beginner at FMQ and the only way to get better is to practice, practice, practice which is why we're doing this isn't it?
Day 1 was mostly getting prepared to quilt. I did do a little on a scrap of fabric and batting. this is the result
Day 2 I worked on a practice piece. I have a hard time with basic meandering. This wasn't too bad, I only really messed up two places. One I got to close to the line, the other I actually crossed it. The line meandering technique was a whole lot easier for me but for some reason I could not slow down doing this technique. My machine sounded like it was preparing for take off! lol But all in all it came out pretty good. The next square will be loops and then the last square will be clamshells. I hope it will help me learn more control. My ultimate goal is feathers! I adore quilts with feathers and REALLY want to master them.
