Ann and Diane at her book signing 2011
Recently Ann Fahl and I were discussing the angst of quilting over triangles on our home sewing machines. The thickness, the foot getting hung up, the pulling on the quilt, large stitches, tiny stitches, broken needles, hair pulling, all of it. The STRUGGLE!
Ann is busy on her end writing about this issue and will blog about it in a series of posts about quilting her red triangle quilt. She has lots of info after working on this quilt and I will be posting my blog in a few days, so watch for hers and mine as well.
We hope our joint effort will help with your quilting, because quilting in a home machine is definitely a challenge at times. All of our experience and knowledge both in quilting and working with students and the wide variety of machines should give you the tips you need to make things go so much more smoothly.
I hope to publish more informational blogs in the upcoming months, maybe even another tutorial. Thanks for all your well wishes; Oliver and I are doing well. He is worried the weather is so very cold so early in the season, and he wondered about the snowflakes in the air the other night. Oh no....
Above, Oliver the first week at our house. He chowed down in my bathroom and now that I look at this I see why I thought his tail was so long; his body hadn't grown yet! He was 6 months old. He is still as sweet as ever, maybe even sweeter, but I am so biased.
Keep quilting! Your work gets better every day....
