I started out with absolutely no control over machine quilting...lol. You would have laughed to see me at the machine!! I was terrified of it...pedal to the floor; and hands could not keep up. Now; I can at least sit down at my machine and plan my path...it doesn't always work out just the way I thought....but I enjoy it most of the time.
I have used a few different threads; liking Aurifil and YLI the most so far. I have a lot to try yet.
I really like rayons; they seem to run smoothly in my machine, and I love the sheen of them. I have tried cotton batt and poly batt; they both work, but prefer the cotton because of less loft. Fabrics; I used mostly cottons, but did try a rayon with sheen once...I loved how it looked!
I want to take another class in the spring; mainly to get as much stress free practice as possible. I enjoy the social part of a class; and it relaxes me to joke with others doing the same thing. I hate being too serious....lol.
Here are a few things that I have FMQ
Ok,,,,enough pics for you to have to look at. But wanted to show you that I am getting more at ease with this. I want to thank SewCalGal for this past year; as it has meant a lot to me to be part of this group. I have learned a tremendous amount since this started. I hope to keep it up in the coming year.
