(two) quilt questions *updates!*
I have been trying for two weeks to get a picture to load, and it just won't do it! I did finish the quilt for my neighbor with cancer. I orange peel'd it with my walking foot, and it went so well. It wasn't perfect, but it wasn't obvious that it wasn't perfect! I'll keep trying to get a picture uploaded.
I took it to their house on a Sunday, and spoke with her husband. She'd been weak Sat, so they went to the ER Sun morning. he said she was doing ok - he thanked me lots for the homemade time intensive (and for not bringing food!). But, by friday of that week she had died. =/. I feel bad about waiting so long to do something for them, and sort of stupid too. =(
I am ready to start quilting the Kaleidoscope quilt. Took me a long time to match a green thread, I ended up going with polyester, to get a good color. =/. I hope that will be ok . . . I practiced the around and around on a leftover block, and FMQing is SO hard! I will use my walking foot again . . . wish me luck!
thanks for all of the help and suggestions!~
