July's FMQ Challenge
I finally got around to this month's Free Motion Quilting Challenge (nothing like waiting until the last moment - I did finish it yesterday though!).
I really liked this month's design from Angela Walters.
Half of the 8" x 16" block on my sampler quilt I filled the tiles with different fillers,
the other half I tried irregular tiles and the same fillers.
This is my sampler quilt to far. Hard to believe that there are only 5 more areas to quilt. It has been a fabulous challenge - thanks SewCalGal!!
I have always had bobbin tension problems when quilting - when the bobbin starts to get low on thread, and I quilt too fast. It was recommended that I try a "Single Hole Throat Plate" on my sewing machine. I can't believe the difference it has made. I have quilted a few quilts recently with no tension problems. I have been using it for piecing too, with success. I highly recommend it, if you can get one for your machine.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!❤
