Progress

I am surprised at how quickly this cars and trucks quilt top went together. I tried to use some liberated ideas. I really like the big blocks of color. I am ready to put the quilt sandwich together this afternoon and hopefully start machine quilting soon.


































Lately I have been machine quilting parallel lines. I do wish I could become more proficient and learn to free motion. I have tried it and maybe all I need to do is practice. I don't want the quilting to dominate the design but highlight.

I am not showing all of this quilt because it is a gift. I need to do the binding and this will be finished. I love the design and I hope the person that is getting it will too!!





















A bit of good news. My daughter in law is on her way home from London! We will all be relieved when she gets home.

I really love the quirky off squareness of your quilt! I do the horizontal machine lines too. I've practiced the free-motion quilting, but once I put the project at the machine, I freeze up with fear. xo,

Loving your quilt top! The colours are just fab - so bright and cheery.

Glad to hear your daughter-in-law is on her way home. It's incredible how something so far away can cause so much chaos!

This quilt came out great! Bright and happy. Great job!

That free-motion does take practice. I'm not good at it yet...it's hard to loosen up enough to flow well. I always have a practice piece to loosen up on before I start on the "real" quilt!
