Quilting, Practice Practice Practice…

I just got my sewing machine extension work table – yayyy!  Now I have everything to quilt, except for my machine quilting skills.  My instructor said you need 24 hours, or was it 48 hours? of practice before you become somewhat adept.  So, with my usual can do attitude ( only for things that I really want to do and am interested in :)) I have been doing the 3 P’s.  I have thus far two quilts waiting to be quilted, and will probably have a couple more before I feel ready to finish them off…

Always nice to read up on things:QuiltingPPP_2

Goofing around.  Haven’t mastered the speed/hand coordination yet – still really jaggedy:

  1. It’s 25 hours of practice. Looks like you are well on your way to that! You are making the rest of us look like slackers, lol

  2. Have fun practicing your quilting!! Looking good….love the lady!!!

  3. Linda, you really are amazing. You have such talent in every crafty thing you try! Your quilting doodles are amazing – WOW!! When we were in CA a few weeks ago, I actually bought an old late 1950’s sewing machine and HAD to bring it home (ended up having to pay the extra fee at the airport due to weight). 😦 But it is a beauty. Now I need to learn to sew. Again. 🙂

  4. Looks like you are well on your way! I’m glad you have a miniature friend keeping you company!
