Continuing On My Wholecloth Quilt

Remember this beast?

Sat down yesterday to start to fill the middle section. In retrospect probably should have made the wreath a bit bigger. There is a lot of space to fill. Thought for a moment about what filler to use but not having FMQ for a while I thought I better stick with the microstippling. Used my new Dynamic Spring foot which worked like a dream. Visibility was very good which still surprises me given that it is a closed foot. And the 3 LED lights in the new machine were fantastic, definitely made a huge difference in seeing where I was going. This is how far I got in one sitting. Had to stop there ...can only do microstippling for a few hours and then I start losing the rhythm...

Not bad for an evening's work...really want to get this finished as it has been lying around for a while. And then there are other UFO's to finish...

  3. Hallo Karin,

    dein Quilting sieht einfach wunderschön aus und es sind so feine saubere Stiche....bei mir sind sie immer viel zu klein. Wahrscheinlich habe ich noch etwas falsch eingestellt an der Maschine...ich über noch;-)

    Schöne Woche, wünscht dir
