I have been off the site for a while we lost our home and I sort of lost it. We are now in a better place and I have just started to quilt again I took 8 months off after depression set in. I stopped the board too because of the issues I was having, I cannot tell you how much I missed everyone. And to those who sent items and well wishes thank you so much they really meant a lot. I have a coin purse that I keep around as a reminder of the many caring people on this board!
I just started quilting again and wow I am no longer so anal about things!!! I did some free motion on my machine and it was the best I have ever done. I guess when you stop worrying about how it will look it turns out pretty good
One of my questions is I just purchased an Accuquilt Go! I tried to find some threads on here about the Go! but I have had no luck. I have not used it yet just received it yesterday and wondered if there are any tips/tricks out there. I have about 15 dies and cannot wait to really get using it.
My other question is I am working on a queen size French Braid that will include an applique silhouette of an Eagle soaring (the eagle will be about 3 feet wide and tall) 1) since this is a queen size quilt do you think the eagle should be as big it would take up most of the top what do you think would be a good size?. 2) I have never done an applique and would like to just do a raw edge with a lot of detail decoration on it good or bad idea (meaning not folding under the edges)?? Any advice? I have never been so frustrated with a quilt I have finally started cutting it today. I have changed the fabric 5 times in the last 2 weeks (complete change of 12 fabrics ok this is not bad I have added to my stash LOL)
Thank you in advance for your help I cannot wait to get back on here!
