I slowed down considerably today and experienced more success.
The back of my project, however, using the Prescenia 60/3 again in top & bottom, presented some tension issues in places. Still not exactly sure why? I used warm & natural batting and began in the center of the project, which provided more stability.
I like combining Harriet Hargrave's suggested patterns from her book "Heirloom Machine Quilting".
I plan on watch the free youtube video from Sharon Schamber. Thanks to Joan from Australia and her post at the FMQ Challenge website here: http://fmqchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/04/fmq-challenge-day-5.html
(You will see the Joan does really beautiful work!)
Where do you obtain your pantograms or quilting patterns?
Do you prefer to machine quilt, send out to a long-armer, mid-arm it yourself on a frame or quilt by hand?
