As mentioned previously, I got together a quilt sandwich for Sunsets and White Beaches last Sunday. I figured I could churn through straight line quilting this baby in a couple of days, and have it bound by the end of the month. Easy peasy.
I started machine quilting this evening, playing with a couple of arrangements.
First, I thought that I could do a wide cross hatch, with the lines about 2″ apart. So I did two lines like that. Then I stepped back and HATED it. Out came the seam ripper. Next, I thought that I could do some outline stitching. That was just as bad, especially with all the twisting and turning of the quilt in the machine.
Hello, seam ripper, you are my friend.
