Days 6, 7, & 8

I’ve been having so much fun! I find myself rushing home everyday to get to spend more time with my sewing machine. Day 7 I could only spare an hour, but I managed to quilt 5 wreaths and 2 feathers! Wow, I am getting so much faster. I am also doing much better on my backtracking. Quilting the feathers feels more natural too! I can’t believe the progress I’ve made after just 1 week!

Here’s my picture from last night. I left the paper on because I was rushed for time and I just wanted to quilt.

I can’t believe the rate I’m going through bobbins. I think because of all the backtracking I am doing and also because I have the stitch length set so low. I like it that low so I can tear the paper easily.

Last night (Day 8) I got home and was so exhausted. I still managed to quilt 3 feather sprays, but that was a struggle!

This is how my quilt clips have lasted! I get tired of rolling it up or rolling it out and just leave them off. What a lazy girl!
