You guys know I’m not much for fancy quilting and prefer quilting scrap quilts with an overall freehand pattern or a pantograph but every now and then I have to move out of my comfort zone.
I do very little ruler work so I’m pleasantly surprised that my straight line quilting isn’t too bad on the Irish Chain that Mom made for me.
I’m quilting informal wreaths and just marking my center with a temporary pen. I don’t stitch that line I just try to quilt my feathers around it inside and out. I haven’t done these for a long time and I have to admit I don’t want anyone looking too closely at several of them.
It’s funny but I worried about quilting this for so many years and now that I’m actually doing it all the mistakes don’t bother me. I’d be really upset of it was on someone else’s quilt but on mine, I’m content knowing I’m stretching myself a little and the mistakes are a part of the learning process. Another good reason not to quilt for others!
