In November I showed a couple of photos of starting to machine quilt a quilt for a friend - click here to see that blog post. This quilt top was made to donate to the charity that our guild supports and it just needed some quilting. We often find in our guild that there are lots of quilt tops waiting for quilting...but I think it's a great way to practise and improve your skills.
I decided to practise different types of feather designs, and at the beginning I was really happy that my quilting could not be seen...all the better to practise on without fear, right??
But as I went along, and I started to feel like the quilting was turning out even better than I had hoped, I was kind of sad that all that work could not be seen :(
If I manipulate the exposure and contrast settings of a photo of the back of the quilt, maybe the quilting can be seen a little better?
Anyway, it was fun and I improved my confidence...what more could I ask for?!?
Coincidentally, I love the art quote of the day on my blog page today...
"Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house (charity quilt) as to build a cathedral (quilt show entry)."
