Off the grid

3 10 2012

Last night I took a class at the Cambridge Quilt Shop on free motion quilting.

20121003-152348.jpgI finally took my sewing machine off the grid and let her loose, with zig-zaggy patterns and trying to draw with thread. I’ve tried this on my own and always made a knotty thread disaster that requires the jaws of life to remove from my sewing machine. I was finally getting the swing of it by the end of the 2 hours.

It’s harder than it looks, practice makes perfect.

Today I cleared the furniture out of the dining room taped down my quilt back and pinned it all together.

This thing is so big that it it stretched the full width of the dining room.
