Really, not much better than last week. However, there are a few bright spots! I have been playing with threads I've never worked with before and it has been fun experimenting. The feather above was made using 60/2 cotton on top and Superior's Bottom Line 60wt poly in the bobbin.
I have also discovered that echo quilting is much easier with an open free motion quilting foot:
I ditched the closed foot that came with my machine and used the modified foot that my dad took a Dremel tool to. While I can't say my echo quilting has really improved, I think it will be much easier going forward. I have better vision without all that metal in the way!
And on a final note, how about an adorable kitty picture? This is my QC team, Linkin and Rune. I must be fairly good at making quilts because so far they haven't rejected a single one!
Until next week or when I make significant progress (whichever comes first, hopefully the latter) -
