It's not like I don't have enough of my own projects to finish but I do enjoy finishing other peoples projects.
I found this small feedsack quilt top a few years ago. It was all wonky and far from being square.
It was also stained, faded and had some dry rot but it was the perfect quilt top to practice my first attempt at free motion quilting on my new machine.
some fabric was replaced, a border added to increase the size of the top and a salvaged vintage fabric for the back. There was quite a bit of patching involved. The blue scottie fabric is newer repro fabric as is the binding. The rest is vintage.
There was no plan for the quilting on the top. It was fun just to scribble or doodle quilt and play with the free motion.
The spiderweb was a favorite.
Enjoyed the pebble pattern and playing with feathers
My first feather, not so great but good practice. Free motion on a standard sewing machine is so different from a long arm, it took me quite a bit to get the feel of it.
It was fun to quilt on this top and not have to worry about the over all outcome of this project.
It gave me confidence to tackle the towering stack of vintage unfinished quilt tops from the Dark Ages in a time before Grid Rulers and Rotary Cutters.
