I am so happy that this quilt is finally completed! I spent more hours picking out stitches then I care to admit. I wanted to use my PC Quilter to make the feathered wreath but I am waiting for my regular quilting machine to come back from the shop. I was using my Pfaff Creative 2.0 which is not really big enough to make the 12 inch wreath. I tried to do the feathers on the frame.... BUT.....One big problem… I can’t see behind the quilting foot!!! Rip… rip… rip out the stitches!!! I quickly discovered this was not the way to go, so I had to do all the free motion quilting on my sit down machine.
I first had to make the feathered template. I used several layers of freezer paper ironed together to get a nice stiff pounce base. I punched holes in the paper large enough for the chalk to go through. I used the blue colored pounce against the cream background fabric.
I am glad I joined the Free Motion Quilt Challenge by SewCalGal… February’s Challenge were Feathers!!
I finished Adam's Dinosaur Quilt as well.
This was fun to make, but really missed my Mid-Arm Machine. I couldn't see where I was going because the quilting foot is so large and the IDT (Walking Foot ) is in the way. Can't wait till I get it back!!
Free Motion Quilt Challenge by SewCalGal… January’s Challenge ..... Leaves!!
And I am looking forward to March's Challenge!!!!
