Design Wall Monday-March 5, 2012

 This is the top I'm working on right now. It's not actually on the wall, but on the sewing table, because I'm giving a shot at quilting some feathers on it.

Here is the design from the front. Not too bad. I decided to use the funky feathers from Suzanne Earley's Meandering Magic. It's no longer in print but she's working on making it available via PDF.

The back is a bit more telling. I'm using fleece and you can see the thread is kind of bunching  up. I'm pretty pleased with how it is turning out. I'll keep at it, and since this is a charity quilt and the quilt police won't be inspecting it, I'm happy to keep going.

By the way, last week I showed my Modern Bargello quilt. I haven't decided how to quilt it yet, so it's resting. But a few commenters asked about the pattern. Since I made it based on an inspiration I wrote up the pattern, if you're interested. You can click on this link and save the PDF to your computer.

Enjoy

Your feathers look great! Sorry you are having problems. Have you tried changing the needle & rethreading the machine? Also maybe adjusting your tension, and cleaning the lent out of your bobbin? I know how frustrating it can be. I came to the conclusion with my machine,after trying everything,(even getting it serviced) that my vintage machine just didn't like to FMQ, so I bought a new one. I hope you work it out!
