I love my craft, but this can make me grumble...
...but I'm in that "must. finish. now." mode, and this is quilt number two....(out of four)
So, while the water slides down the window, the wind thumps against the house, like the big bad wolf, I sing, hum, and bop to my favorite tunes while trying to get through quilting this mass of fabric!
Since the quilt is made up of very busy fabrics and my machine has decided to shred my Yli cotton thread when I attempt to free motion quilt ( yes, I will bring it back to the Sewing Machine Guy ), I'm doing a simple all-over 60-degree diamond pattern.
You can see the paper tape I used here to get me started. Once that first line is done I'll use the guide to help me to the rest of the lines.
You know, it's not all that bad really, I just need to get into a groove, have my tea and music nearby and remind myself that just because I'm sitting behind a sewing machine, doesn't mean things will or automatically have to go faster! Repeating that to myself today while puling, pushing, adjusting, propping and bunching the quilt through my machine, made it go a little easier...a little.......
Have a great weekend my friends!
( I'm heading back to my machine......)
