Frame Friday

I have been a bit frustrated with Barney lately. But armed with some great advice and help from a new online friend (Hi Nancy!), I am trying again! She told me about Glide thread and Magnaglide bobbins. I LOVE them! It has reduced my thread breakage greatly.
Last week I quilted a quilt for QBB and did not have a single thread break. That’s progress!
Yesterday, I spent time practicing. I am still not happy with templates and rulers. I’ve decided to put them away for now. Here are a few shots of my practice. Obviously, I have a LOT to learn.

I am trying to stay away from my standard meander. I did take a run at a pantograph and liked it better than I thought.
I am loading my next QOV this weekend. There is always a risk in learning new things, a balance between trying new things and still ending up with a product you are happy with. I have a few ideas for this next one. We’ll see how it goes.
Until next time….

  2. Your quilting looks great to me. Probably because mine is NOT all that! Keep up the good work.
