It took me a few more days to work up the nerve to try machine quilting the runner’s with a “meandering” stitch. Let’s just say mastering that stitch is going to be much trickier than I thought. I also think it could easily cause carpal tunnel, so I’ll have to watch how much I do. The bad thing … I think I love the process and I know I love the crinkly texture of the finished project. I’m itching to do a quilt now. In fact I’m thinking of playing along with this quilt-a-long. Crazy I know … it’s currently my middle name and daily state of being.
A closer look at the newbie’s “meandering” technique. Thank goodness for the low aperture picture that nicely conceals just how “rough” this one is.
