It has been a long week and I was in need of some play time. I came across this wallpaper image from Manolo Walls earlier this week. I fell in love with it! I’m not a wallpaper person, but I could make an exception for this.
I decided to have a go at a little experiment using some cheap scrap fabric. I drew a 3 by 6 inch grid and roughed in some lines so I could remind myself of the direction I wanted to take the quilting.
Then I got out a ruler and went to work at the long arm.
Yes, I used black thread in the top. I was struggling with tension and ended up putting a light colored thread in the bobbin. Believe it or not, darker threads can cause tension issues. Since I was just p,aging, I decided I didn’t care about mismatched threads.
You can see that I wasn’t trying to hit the lines, they were just sketched in guides. I’m not the best at rulerwork, I get too impatient!
Here is the back side.
And this is the front after washing. I kinda like it and wish I had used better fabric.
Now, I’m trying to decide if I should finish it as is or play some more. And do I have the attention span to try this again? Hmmmm…..
Have a great day!
