When I teach classes in Machine Quilting, I always tell my students that the biggest trick is to Practice, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!!
After hearing the awarding of the ribbons at our quilt show this past week, I have decided that I have coveted the “Best Machine Quilting” award for too many years and so I am going to try to do something about it this year.
To that end, I came home on Saturday evening and spent about 2 hours watching a DVD that I had purchased and simply playing. It was such fun.
The DVD came from Sharon Schamber’s website and is full of good tips and tricks. I spent the evening with the DVD called “Domestic Basic Freeform Feathers” and I had a great time watching her technique and then trying to replicate it.
To get started, I grabbed a piece of older (not very good) beige fabric and used my fusible batting to make a large sandwich. Then I just started sewing and two hours later, this is what I had.
I am encouraged and excited about continuing to practice!!
One thought on “Machine Quilting Practice”
Very impressive. Just think how nice it is going to look when you get going on some good fabric.
