My First Attempt at Machine Quilting
This is my first go at machine quilting! I made up the patch work bit first and cut the back out of a plain light blue fabric and put the wadding between. I used one of those wash away markers and used it to draw on the back where I wanted to sew. Then using my brand new quilting foot for my sewing machine I attempted to use follow the lines as best I could starting in the middle. I dont think it is too bad but I did find it very difficult - but people do say it will get better with practice! I have plans for this piece as its not to sad, I even think I could use it to make a gift!?
