But here's a sneak peak!Today, as well as starting the quilting an older quilt top on my frame, I dropped the feed dogs on the Bernie and grabbed my sandwich piece I use to check the tension for the Juki and had a little play with some proper free motion quilting. It's been a while since I did it this way, but I wanted to see if I could do pebbles/circles. OK, there is room for improvement, but for a first attempt I'm pretty pleased, and it became easier as I went along too!
I guess a little practice everyday will improve these and samples.
So what am I striving for? well to improve the standard of what I do, to enjoy the process, ultimately to really be proud of my quilting. Perhaps I should get myself a little motivational strategy, although I am driven by the creativity, should I structure it more? Could I achieve more by doing this?
How do you organise your crafting/artistry? Are you like me flitting from one thing that grabs you to the next, sometimes (OK, most of the time, (grin)) leaving projects as work in progress, or do you stick to one project at a time, structure your creativity, and if so, how? Perhaps I should concentrate on one thing mastering it to the highest level before I move on ...
... like I said, I need a little motivational strategy!
P.S. I just thought I'd warn you, this is post numer 97 for me, I'm hunting my stash for something to celebrate 100 with a giveaway, so watch this space!
