My BFF, Shirley, always lets me take a gamble on her Gammil! The fun begins.
We loaded two twin tops at once...I made the backing the same fabric
(flannel gray polka dot) and made sure it (and the batting) was large enough for BOTH tops.
Kwilts #1 and #2
Here is a close up of the fabric
Santa's clothes are hanging on the line!
I meandered on the white fabric and did a back and forth line on the blocks...
alternating the direction in each block.
Kwilt # 3 was this Bernatex beauty
Maria Kalenowski, Lemon Tree fabric line
The fabric is sew busy...
I used a simple meander to kwilt it.
Black thread...I must be getting daring!
I luv, luv, luv dragonflies....
How bout naming the "Flight of the Dragonflies"
Kwilt #4 was my version of "Pick up Sticks"
waiting for the next day....
Loaded and ready to roll...
I was doing a straight line kwilting back and forth
across the entire horizontal length...about half-way done
the Gammil machine began to throw a
Thread kept breaking...tried a new needle,
different thread, rethreading, cleaning...
Brought it home and THE HISSY FIT continued...
I had to pin the half finished kwilt down to my carpet.
Got out the spray basting..(screams) not working!
Back to the floor, pinned it ALL down to the carpet again
and pinned the unfinished side as shown. (more screams)
The right side of this block is the long arm
The left side is my Bernina kwilting.
Guess it turned out ok...all Hissy Fits considered!
My Bernina was happy I came home to her!
Needless to say #5 kwilt still need kwilted!
ugh...I am so wishing it was done!
Shall I try to kwilt it or just SEND IT OUT!
What "modern" kwilting design would you recommend?
