    I'm not so scared anymore!

    I just finished 2 baby quilts, both the same. I pieced them on my Singer 301A, but quilted them on my newer Kenmore. What I'm not scared of anymore:
    • using my Singer 301A - these are the first projects that I sewed on it - and yes, it does a beautiful straight stitch
    • free motion quilting! I normally go for stitch in the ditch, or cross hatching, or a bit of stippling over a small area, like in a cosmetic bag. But this time, after watching tutorials on Craftsy with Ann Petersen and Leah Day, figured I needed to take the plunge and try SOMEtime, and why not now?

    This is a picture of the 2nd quilt I finished - it's a little nicer than the first quilt, but the first quilt was not too bad. I've got a lot to learn still, but at least I'm not so scared to try!

    VERY NICE!!! I have found sometimes a person can work themselves into a tizzy over thinking something instead of just doing it. Love your feathers!!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
