A glimpse into my quilting journey - projects, tips, techniques, and more.
Tuesday, 8 August 2017
And here it is! This project didn't take too long. Each of the airplanes is composed of 7 pieces of fabric, to create large blocks (12x15" I think?). I quilted this on my new longarm. I figured it would take me about 30 minutes to do a quick wave across the quilt. But I failed to consider the learning curve I'm still experiencing.
I setup my pantograph, and had to fight with the computer for a while to get the rows to all flow how I wanted them. Then, after I finished quilting the first row I noticed an issue with the second, so I had to reprogram it. Which made it very difficult to line up with the first set of waves. But, after much effort, I figured it out, got the quilt done, and I know how to quilt this pattern for next time.
The quilt was bound in the background fabric. But I delivered it to the shop before I remembered to take a finished picture.
