Geishas, fans, and gingko leaves
I found a pattern on Fons and Porterís web site for a lovely Asian style quilt. I have never been one to follow a pattern exactly but soon after I started this one, I wished I had followed it a little more closely. I ran into problems early on and did a lot of Ďunsewingí. This quilt took much longer to complete than it should have and Iím VERY glad itís done. I decided that if I am going to ever get good at FMQ on my domestic sewing machine, Iím just going to have to put the pedal to the metal and go to it. Ignore some of the less than perfect stitching and just overwhelm the entire quilt with so many stitches, you wonít notice the ones that went wrong. My little sewing machine performed amazingly throughout all the quilting I did on this one. I just finished giving it a good cleaning and oiling so itís ready to go back to work tomorrow.
