My first time~~~and I am still a bunch nervous!
I have gazed longingly at other quilters' blogs. I dream of being able to do it to. Tonight I jumped in and attempted my first quilted item on the machine. I put some dark thread on the top with white underneath so I could check out the tension. Last time I do that. I actually began to relax and have fun with it. I switched back to white thread and happily putzed along.
It is the red headed step child of the pot holder world. It is single handedly the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. But..it's mine. I made it. It's going up in the kitchen in a place of honor right next to a loopy potholder my bff made for me a few weeks back. I am putting the binding on the little sucker tomorrow and that baby is going up! Wahoo, I made it, lol. Now I may need a pork chop in a can before bed. Yep, getting a little hungry.
If you ever decide to try machine quilting for the first time, just try it. It really was run. Later, Elaine
