I have begun quilting my tulip table square and am so excited with how it's coming along!
I am doing a really random loopy-doopy quilting (very technical quilting name) in light pink on the top (beige on the bottom) and enjoying the freedom of free motion quilting. I can see that my circles are getting more round, I'm taking more chances making up the design as I go, and I'm getting better at not getting myself stuck in a corner, ha!
Here's a sneak peak.
The texture is so amazing! I really like how it feels on my fingers and the visual puffs and valleys created by the quilting are neat too!
Yes, I had the whole thing quilted when I flipped it over and found a fold on the backside which lead me to rip out nearly 1/2 of the quilting -- if you follow me on twitter, then you have already heard all about it. That's what I get for trying to quilt too late in to the night. Darn fold!
This will get a quick straightening/ironing and then I should be able to finish the quilting and attach the binding!
As for my X Marks the Spot quilt, I haven't made any more progress, but I did get to show my MIL what I have done so far (she is the one who gave me the gift card which purchased the fabric). It was fun to show her and talk about where I want to take the quilt. It's even more special because she 'gets' my excitement!
I did however, take advantage of a great sale and picked up a while flannel sheet.
Why you ask?
