I keep on looping :-) I was bit worried about getting a lot of puckers as those unquilted parts seems more loose but it's going all right. Sure I made some puckers but I can live with that.
My quilting is getting better but it still needs a lot of practice. This is about gaining confidence and "I can do it" attitude rather than perfection. That first try quilting is still making me smile. I think it's totally ridiculous.
This is where I'm at. I had to go and buy some thread as I didn't have all those colors. Some of the thread I used turned out to be really shitty and after number of breakages I fully understand the importance of a good quality thread. Sure I read it many times but I always need to try for myself anyway. Not the best way to live by but yes I have a bit doubting Thomas personality.
The thread either broke completely or I ended up with messy thing around the needle so I couldn't move with it any further.
This is really a good learning experience and yes next time I FMQ I'll take matching thread with the background and I won't play brave enough to tackle contrasting thread on white background, lol.
Plus I'll be watching the fabric ends. I think I made it on both sides of the quilt. It'll be trimmed out later on so not a big deal but good learning experience.
The end is near and I really would like to finish it. At least the quilting part before moving on to something else. I bought batting for my triangle quilt so I'm all set to start on that one too. As I choose some
You might have read the post by sparkly Molli so I'm adding the button to my blog as well. I do appreciate all the lovely comments you usually leave but if you don't like something you have the permission to tell me. Doesn't have to be quilting related. You can tell me that my English is crappy but please point me to the mistakes I make otherwise I won't learn anything.
You can be sure that if I make a comment on your blog stating "I love it" I truly mean it. I try to always come up with something positive and if I can't I pass. I probably keep on doing that. There are also days when I don't feel like commenting at all. There are few bloggers to whom I'm able to tell my opinion even if it's not on sweet tune but I "know" them for a while and we usually exchange few emails afterwards. It is not about going around the blogland and telling people mean comments. Just keep it real.
