Done!



I always feel like a boulder has been lifted from my shoulders when I finish a quilt. I finished the soduko quilt. Yeah! (can you find the mistake??) It quilted, bound, labeled, washed and my girlfriend snuggled with it last night. I machine quilted it and honestly don't understand the fear behind machine quilting. It takes practice, education (as in understanding your machine, threads and needles), not being afraid to move your tension and time. My machine meandering or free style quilting has become very acceptable. Not perfect but I impressed myself. LOL!!! My piecing accuracy on the other hand...........Quilting in a set stenciled pattern is much more difficult. However, I've only done it once and therefore have practiced very little. Meandering and following stencils have completely different stress levels attached!

This picture was taken outside and shows the fabrics in a much better light. It was wayyyyy toooo windy to take a picture outside.

Lovely quilt and lovely quilting.

What a lovely quilt! Thanks for showing your machine quilting! Looks good to me! What kind of machine do you use? I tend to do my MQ on my regular sewing machine.

Shelina said...

Congratulations on a great finish Morah. This is a beautiful quilt, and the quilting is awesome. I like the freedom and fun of free motion quilting too, although my stitch length isn't nearly as consistent as yours.

Anne said...

Congratulations on work very well done! Your machine quilting is great!!! And the quilt is really cute!

Rose Marie said...

What a great quilt for snuggling under! Your quilting is good and a great inspiration for me to give machine quilting (other than straight stitching)a try.

Your sudoku quilt looks great and you did a wonderful job on the quilting

I see that it isn't "solved" correctly. Third block down on first column. What happened? It is gorgeous nevertheless!!

Susan said...

Your quilting is wonderful! Hard to believe you did it on a "baby" machine, not a longarm! I don't see any mistake. =)

I agree that machine quilting is not something to be afraid of - at least for most of our 'regular' quilts, but you did a really good job. I tend to occasionally get 'lost' in the pattern on my home machine.

Can't wait to see your string quilt - not fair that you dodn't post it until it's finished. Sad here.

Thanks for the visit. Had a good time, hearing about 'that fence' issue! I have my own version of a fence issue. LOL
