So do you ever start with your free motion quilting and about 10 minutes into it you realize that the design you have chosen is going to take way longer then you planned on???
That was yesterday. Not that I am complaining . . . I love a good day spent free motion quilting. I just hadn't planned on it being such a big chunk of the day. And I am still not done yet.
This is what is taking so long :) I am doing echo quilting with straight lines :) But . . . I am not using my walking foot. With an 85" square quilt there was no way I was turning that bad boy at every point. So I am doing straight lines with my free motion foot. I saw that Amanda from Crazy Mom Quilts tried this a little while back and I figured this would be the perfect quilt to give it a try on :)
It took a little bit of practice to get the lines straight. But the great thing is, even when they are not perfectly straight, it still looks good. It gives it a nice wavy feel. Amanda referred to it as an organic feel. And it is like I am doing it on purpose :) So even though it is taking a long time, I don't mind, because I am totally loving the way it is turning out. Which of course, makes it all worth it!!
So I am wondering . . . Would you like to see a video tutorial on how I do this or is it pretty straight forward. Where I am not done, I could record it and add it to the tutorial of the quilt :) Yup, another quilt tutorial next week and I am so super excited about this one!!!!
