Quilting Practice

As you know, I recently purchased a new quilting machine.  Totally awesome!

Well, it takes some time to get used to the new machine … so practice practice practice.  I pulled a quilt top out of my stash and set about doing just that.  My sister calls it ‘sew like the wind!’   I must say, I purchased this quilt top off eBay for about $10, pulled some batting and black solid fabric from my stash and set about to quilt it.  I tried starting and stopping, pantograph designs, free hand designs, and using templates and rulers.  Great fun!  And tons of experience.  The quilt is not exactly what I’d enter into a quilt show, but as for snuggling under while watching tv – perfect!
