First real attempt at quilting….

So I got a walking foot in the mail the other day and was extremely excited to put it on and attempt to quilt one of the first quilt tops I made!! I did my homework and “Googled” all over the internet to see what I could learn about how I do this quilting….. I have come to the conclusion there is no one proper way to quilt a top sooooooooo I was left to figure it out on my own with tid bits of information and try and see what works for me…. several hours later and at 1am Italy time…. I am tired and can’t wait to get a new machine for my anniversary because this is probably not the greatest machine to quilt on… WHAT A PAIN IN THE TOOSH!!!  Ugh I had rolled fabric everywhere the walking foot didn’t do what I thought it should do…. I have bunched up fabric all over the back and just what a mess!!! I tried my darndest and finished up the lines tonight, which are far from straight!! BUT if anyone has any advice they could lend me I would be appreciative!! Here are the pictures of the front and back….. I have not washed the fabric yet and I have not trimmed and done the edges just simply did the lines of quilting…. hope you enjoy or at least get a humorous laugh at my sad attempt :o(the back :-) Read the rest of this entry »

Tomorrow will be a busy time getting back to finishing gifts for friends and family!! Must get my sew on!!

A new blogging spot ….

Hello everyone!! My name is Jackie Miller and I am a mommy of all trades, except cooking and cleaning :o)   I love to be crafty and try and do my own thing. Recently I bought a $79 Brother sewing machine from the PX ( we are currently stationed overseas in Italy via. US ARMY) and then I went ahead and got some fabric and started sewing things together, turns out I really enjoy it and so in the last two weeks I have sewed 4 quilt tops spent loads of money on fabric, cause I just am falling in love with prints now that I have discovered the fabric world of “”   I will post pictures soon cause I am just having loads of fun!! I LOVE IT!! Thanks for stopping by!!
