My FMQ Challenge progress
I am keeping up with my promise to machine quilt every day for 14 consecutive days. Its the half way point today. I have tried making feathers and I feel pretty good about them now. I also tried a feathered wreath and found that fun too. I have also been working on quilting my pink string quilt. It is slow going. I find with all the bias seams in a string quilt, there is still a lot of stretching while machine quilting along the surface., even though I handbasted it quite heavily. The backing is still perfectly flat, no puckering at all, but the top requires a lot of attention while quilting, so I have to take it slow. I didnt have this problem when I quilted my Blue and Yellow String last year. Click on this http://fmqchallenge.blogspot.com/search/label/Linda to check my progress.
