I'm practising my free motion quilting.
This isn't something I've tried before.
I needed a small project on which to practise, so another hot water bottle cover was whipped up.
I like these loopy loops. They remind me of those handwriting practice sheets my youngest son brings home from school.
Free motion quilting is relatively easy on a small piece like this. It's when you try it on a bulky quilt that it gets harder.
I'm thinking of purchasing one of those unattractive sewing tables that your machine sits flat in. Do you have one of these?
My industrial machine sits flat within a table. It's as ugly as can be, but is lovely to sew at. I'm sure it will make all the difference to machine quilting. My machine currently sits on a rickety little Ikea table with my overlocker. Not really ideal.
(By the way, does anyone else get confused between 'practice' and 'practise'. I'm having to recall primary school grammar to write this post.)
