My mom always used the phrase, "I am woman, hear me roar!" when she was pretty proud of herself.
Well, I'm feeling pretty proud...
I had this bad boy on my machine tonight:
Quilting on my little sewing blitz quilt is officially finished. Tonight. Woo hoo!
This leads me to a random question for the evening...
What is your favorite part about the quilting process from that first rotary slice to the last stitch in the binding?
I live for the moment when I can take my quilted quilt and cut the rough edges away.
There is just something about that glorious clean edge and the feeling of accomplishment.
While I'm asking random questions- what do you do with your "warm-up" or practice pieces?
Mine are piling up around here, and I'm not quite sure what to do with them...
But of course, my favorite part of quilting leads to my least favorite part of quilting...
I did try something new on this quilt.
I had heard or read somewhere that one should zig-zag the raw edges of their quilt down before quilting.
I have to say, this really didn't work for me.
I got about 18 inches down the first side of my quilt and gave up.
Things were bunching up and it seemed like more of a hassle than a help.
Does anyone else do this?
Do you find it helpful?
More to come on this quilt.
Have a wonderful evening!
