The Hushabye quilt is coming along nicely. I have attached the binding and just need to hand sew it to the back and then I'm finished. I am so happy to be so close to finishing this one! It is so pretty!
There is good news and bad news for the baseball quilt.
The good news, there is a finished top,
Both of which are pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!!
The bad news:
What is with all these stinkin' loops on the back of my quilt!! I decided to do "easy" organic straight line quilting for this one in order to meet the quickly approaching deadline for 100 Quilts for Christmas, but I keep messing up!! I am so frustrated!! The quilting on the front is perfect, the only problem is the loops on the back!! I have tried adjusting the tension and cleaning the machine of dust, but nothing is working. If anyone has any suggestions I could really use some help. I have decided to FMQ this so that it will be finished in time (I never thought I would write that sentence). Even though I have decided to change quilting methods I really am open to any advice. I am so looking forward to the time when this quilting thing is a little easier! While my piecing still isn't perfect I do feel comfortable doing it. I used to have a problem with binding, but I seem to have worked through that process. Quilting is always such a problem for me. I know I need to practice, but I just get so frustrated!!
The only other update I can mention is I have started cutting out the red, white and blue quilt I am making for a Christmas gift. I am hoping to get some serious sewing time in this weekend, but we'll see. I also need to decorate for Christmas. Hope everyone else had a very productive week!!
