Design Wall Monday - July 23
There's lots going on today. Even some actually sewing on my design wall (well, table, since my wall is still full of quilts). This is my colour challenge quilt. for July. I needed a break from long arming, so I put this together last night.
I got my long arm running yesterday, so that occupied most of my day. I had a great time playing with it, and finsihed my first "quilt". Just a practice piece, to see how bad I am at this :)
I wrote my name.
Made some really bad feathers.
And some leaves. I'm pretty happy with how these came out, but I do seem to have a problem. The machine *really* likes to go left/right, so a lot of my stems are straight horizontal. I'm not sure if that's typical and I just need practice, if I'm doing something wrong, or if there's an issue with my setup. I should be able to find out this week from the distributor (I'm betting on #1 or 2).
