|After finishing her ice cream Sascha 'helps' Salijn with eating her ice cream! It is a joy to watch them!|
The second fmq-tutorial for my own challenge: exercising micro-fmq on postcards is posted on my blog.
I finished three samplers that I already gave away as place mats to friends who were my neighbours in the street where our children are born and raised.
I finished my second hyper quilted feather sampler
I need to improve echoing and backtracking and I need to speed up with same accuracy too.
I try consistent stippling with two gingko leaves samplers. Consistent quilting is much more easy on micro quilting scale. I assume that when I can keep stippling consistent on a bigger scale, it must be easier to keep other patterns consistent as well! I put one sampler partly on the other one before I take a picture, so you can not see the worst stippling!
My friends did not ever hold a needle in their hands hands. So they don't even know that stippling need to be consistent and were very happy with the presents!
Next weekend I am with even older friends in a hotel in Emmeloord. That is the place where we went to high school together. We have a weekend together every year. I make for them place mats like this ones in different colours, all with stippling! So after next week my stippling much be almost perfect!
I start with two UFO's this week as well. Two 'Balloon ride' play quilts. The balloons and two girls are finished. I want to finish one quilt this weekend. I hope I can give it to my youngest daughter, who comes home Sunday from Africa.
So there is a lot to sew!
