Leah Day's blog for her quilt along.
I quilted with the white thread over top of a scrap piece from a previous attempt. I grabbed another quilt sandwich and tried again. I stuck with it for a good hour. Here is the result.
and here is a close up
I got a little courageous and tried something different.
After all of this FMQ, did I learn anything? Yessiree! I discovered that by slowing down the speed of the machine it was easier to stitch over the same line when I sewed the veins of the leaves. I also learned to recognize the sound of the machine which helped my "hand to machine" coordination.
Oh yes I also learned that FMQ has a way of lifting me out of my" January funk." Now I'm off to work on something else.
