Today I decided was going to be a quilting day. I have had it in my mind that I need to be practicing my machine quilting and today was the day. Two of the quilts that I pinned earlier in the week were not my favorite quilts, in fact, it was very hard for me to even take them out and work on them. I didn't like my fabric choices and one of them was so old it bothered me. But then I started thinking that they would be the perfect quilts to practice on.
I loved these fabrics and I loved the pattern, but I do not love them together. Now that it is quilted, I'm liking it a lot better and that is because it is square and lays flat. I am going to use this as a table topper and a lot of it will be covered up.
I have thought for a long time about how I wanted to quilt my houses quilt. I decided that I would use a lot of different techniques that I learned in my machine quilting classes. I did end up taking some quilting out, but overall, I'm happy with it.
I even tried the loops over the squares and I realized if I am relaxed it goes well, if not, well then I do a little unsewing. I now have two ready for binding...my absolute favorite part of quilting. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
