One step forward ...



two steps back. Having the right tool for the job is very important and helpful. This week I started quilting my commissioned quilt and decided to try straight stitches ... and so I used my new walking foot. It works so very beautifully and I really like it! BUT, I should have been checking the back while I stitched because while the front looks beautiful, the back is all puckered. My issue was that I started around the outside and so the flannel stretched and now I'm doing hours and hours of ripping out stitches. Let that be a lesson unto me ... ALWAYS start in the middle and work my way out.

Sorry for the puckering. So much less fun than the other kind. I hope it goes better from here on in.
