Sorry, not dancing. This week I have had a go on a HUGE sewing machine, and I loved it! It felt like drawing or doodling but instead of a pencil I was wielding a big, purple, sparkly, computerised machine. Sometimes I went a bit too fast and it over-revs just like when you drive a friend's car for the first time.
Beechwood Quilting in Stirling, Scotland. You can leave your patchwork and backing with them and they'll quilt it for you, or like me, you can have a lesson on how to use the machine on some calico before sewing directly onto your own work. Here you can see my practice of large, small and medium swirls. In the end I decided to stick with large swirls for my quilt.
I have posted about the construction of this quilt top here, and now just have to bind it, label it, photograph it, then I'll share it with you just one more time before I give it to my friend Diane.
