The majority of my week has been taken up with my current quilt, Straight Line Bow. It had another cut put through it and geese inserted, which you can see here. It made it onto the frame at the weekend which was a momentous occasion!
The quilting for this quilt has changed numerous times. Whilst I am getting used to the machine and all the different threads sometimes I have to accept my limitations and go for something that I can actually do to an acceptable standard, as opposed to the stunning vision in my head!!
It would be kind of fun to revisit a quilt like this further down the line when my skills have improved and see what my initial design might look like on it.
Actually I probably won't be doing that. Whilst I have enjoyed working on the quilt I want it finished NOW. I usually take my time making quilts and they can quite often sit on the shelf for months whilst I work on something else. I like change and quite often get bored doing the same thing day in and day out.
However, I have a deadline looming ever closer so I have had to get on with it. In some ways this has been a good thing to happen - it will never end up a WIP on the shelf or UFO, I won't forget what I was going to do with it and it has taught me a great deal very quickly. I have learnt more about the machine in a very short time which will hopefully make upcoming quilts easier and quicker to do.
Straight lines in the borders, which have taken far longer than I thought they would!
Just got the orange and red columns and side border to do. Today I think ...... it will be coming off the frame today! x
