|Second top finished|
How's the city quilt you ask? I got another row done AND I remembered to increase the rectangles by one more. Some times I really impress myself with actually remembering to do the things I want to do. I wobbled a bit on one row which irritated me but then I calmed down and recalled this will be up in the air, seen from the living room as you gaze up to the sewing loft.
I am not having the bunching issues I had before, maybe because I am following the directions for the way they taught me to use the machine?
Why would I not have always done that? Well, I went over to a woman's house who is a complete pro at machine quilting and she would stabilize the whole quilt by stitching in the ditch and drop using the third roll for the top. I tried her method but it obviously didn't work that well for me. Or I didn't really understand her process. It has taken me a while to have an organic understanding of the whole process and it's a ton of work! This quilt I am doing the way I was originally taught and so far, so good!
I like this shot of the third row I have finished quilting. I find I don't use the special high chair I bought but I do love having the anti fatigue mat. My old lady legs and feet can ache if I just stand there even with the mat. That's why I like having other projects to work on where I can sit and sew at the machine.
I have been so darn good lately, I think I need a reward!
We have a Groupon for a fancy dancy restaurant here in town and I think we will just go over there and have a super nice meal. I have been sewing like a crazy lady and have made up all the hours I skipped while on vacation.
Plus, I just like going to fancy dancy restaurants!
