Quilting, Quilting, Quilting and wishing I were Sleeping, Sleeping, Sleeping

I have my sewing machine set up at my work station-er-dining room table and have been working on it in the small bits of time I have.  I really should have marked my lines but I decided to do free hand.  Most of it looks good but I have some wonky stuff in there.  For some, quilting a quilt is a natural talent.  I see some beautiful stuff that comes out of a domestic machine.  For me, the skill will be hard earned.  I see each piece as a time to learn and to improve and thus have to accept that my vision will not always appear on my quilts!  I love them still though and I will DEFINITELY keep practicing!

Here are some shots.

Below, for the most part, you can see how I am quilting it.  I am making an arc in each of the points and squares.  Same goes for the 9 patches.  After that is done, I will be adding some lines in the white areas as well.  The borders will have arcs and feathers.

  1. I have never been brave enough to try quilting on my sewing machine. Perhaps, I will start with a small project.
