I've just finished my second quilting project. I've so enjoyed doing this. The 2 hour class goes in 5 minutes! I'm learning lots including the new terminology like "stitching in the ditch" which means quilting in the seam line - often with invisible thread and is not easy to master (and I haven't mastered it yet!)
It didn't take long for me to realise that if I was going to quilt I would need to invest in one of these...
.... a walking foot. And it is an investment but makes the difference between your project looking smooth or puckered. It enables the layers of fabric to be fed through the machine at the same time.
Learning how my machine does buttonholes
How to stitch evenly spaced rows (nearly!)
These are the pin wheels that give the cover it's name
And the evenly spaced quilted stitching to highlight the pinwheels.
and finally, the finished product!
Next project a bag!!!
