As I said in my last post, my parents visited me and my family all last week. I had to let my Mother try out the quilting machine, so she did some quilty doodles. Then, my son wanted to quilt some more, so he did some quilty doodles. I was running out of space on my practice piece after that, so this session I practiced by doing some fill ins around their quilting fun.
A pretty rough start, but fun anyway! I like the little feather in the bottom of that curlicue.
Here I did a few feather fills and some really heavy background lines, plus a few of those pebbles. I would like to learn how to do that, also.
This looks like a scene from another planet to me. The red feather filled in nicely. At that point I ran out of red thread and switched to the light blue. I did a few swirlies at the bottom. I love swirlies!
Here I quilted a half-feather design across the bottom and a bumpy feather at the top with an echo. I like the echo, but not the feather. I also did some tiny fills in that cool looking square curlicue.
At the end of the fabric, I had a little room to myself. I like the way these three tall, fat, curvy feathers came out with the echo. More practice, more improvement! Now I need to load some new fabric and batting onto the machine again. I can't wait to play some more!
Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!
