Last year You-Tube taught me how to knit. This year You-Tube taught me how to free-motion quilt (can’t remember exactly what video it was). Behold:
It is important not to look too closely at the uneven stitch lengths – or other general dodgyness (such as the actual pattern) – coz it IS my first one. Still, apart from the cramps in my right hand, I think I’m a convert. Will I ever hand quilt again????
I also do need to give honourable mention to the Red Button ladies who gave me great tips last Monday (don’t know why it’s working now when it wasn’t then) and dishonourable mention to one of the Red Button ladies who kinda outed me with my sewing machine maintenence. Who knew you were supposed to remove that foot plate to get the lint out of the bobbin case??
