The weather here in Iowa continues to be miserably hot so I’m staying in my quilt room. This piece of practice quilting is just about ready to throw in the garbage. Whenever I start free motion quilting I test out the tension on a piece like this. I use all different types of thread so I am always adjusting the tension. I use it until it is too hard to tell what is new stitching and what is old.
Do you do something like this? This way when I start FMQing on my quilt the tension is fine.
Remember these great fabrics I got from Vicki? Well on the left of my first photo you can see a sneak peek of the project I am working on for the Quilting Lodge. I thought I would get it done within 2 weeks………..but it didn’t happen with the puppy sitting. As soon as I finish we’ll have a giveaway!
What in the world is this cat doing??
I guess even with the AC on the bathtub is cooler. Sorry I woke you Simon!
