This month was all about playing with the thread and the design and learning from that play. I used Mettler Quilting thread for this sample but I tried 3 different bobbin threads. What a great way to learn to play with your tension. Every bobbin thread needed some adjustment.
I really just let myself go. I loved the spirals that I did. They were easy and so much fun. I think they will become a regular design for me. Thanks Ann Fahl for the great tutorial and inspiration.
I also discovered that I really like flowers. I tried lots of different ones and I think I will have to play a bit with a sketch pad. And of course you can't have a flower without a leaf or two, so I had better practice with those too.
Here is another section of the quilting I had fun with- just simple stars and loops.
I often do quilting that isn't really tight together so I played a bit with that as well. I found the smaller designs I will need to practice a bit because I needed to change my speed of the machine a bit to get slightly smaller stitches.
This is such a great challenge!
