Your butterfly is so pretty Terri. So much more effective when you have one or two than a whole bunch. Kind of like quilting I Spy!
I agree...I sure do love the summery color combination of this quilt too!
Oh neat quilting--I haven't begun as yet--we are dog sitting for a rambunctious 1 1/2 yr old dog....cute though. Hope to rest my back after her walking me this morning (LOL) -- hugs have fun quilting Julierose
Looks like you are doing great with that quilting. I think it's hard to quilt on your home machine. I never did do a lot of it. I found an older longarm at an estate sale that was affordable, so learned how to use it. It has its drawbacks and limitations too, but I love having the table and rollerbars to use for quilting.
Great butterfly and love hour free form quitling.
I love quilts...have a few antique ones and many others. I love the intrique stitching and the story they tell....beautiful one you are working on...great happy colours.
Hey! Congratulations! Remember, the journey of a thousands miles begins with a single step. Or to translate, the journey of machine quilting begins with a single stitch!
I saw 3 different 401's this weekend, sitting side by side. I thought of you when I saw them. Cute butterfly. You can always add some hand quilting to the machine quilting, and do more butterflies by hand.
Absolutely... slow progress is still progress :)
Great work Terri! It is all a progression! Sorry to be a bit late here- yesterday was a curtain making day so I was "head down tails up" in the craft room. Bliss! Going to make a dress today- it is Blitz That List time as the weather is bad for a few days. I've been distracted by garden work- 39 lavenders in, a wheelie bin of dead wood and prunings, more trellis painted, and 8 bags of horse poo distributed! :-) I'm still a wuss about free motion quilting though, so go be brave for the both of us. Hugs!
Love your quilted butterfly. The flight patterns are great too.
I seeee your sweet butterfly, Terri! You are getting better and better. You go girl!
What a cute butterfly! Happy Stitching :0)
