Practice, practice, practice....pay no attention to the practice above the pink feathers...
that was an exercise in tension adjustments.
I've never quilted on satin fabric, never quilted with a polyester thread and never used the spool holder on my Gammill. Today is the day i jump in and play around with these elements. I will be quilting an all satin embroidery quilt which will be on display at the Northwest Quilting Expo in Portland later this month. After much research, testing my stitches, adjusting tension and marking the fabric with various tools to determine the best for disappearing,
i am ready to begin.
But first, i will quilt my Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt which will also be on display at the NW Quilting Expo and hang in a local quilt show in Hillsboro at the First Baptist Church
on the 14th and 15th of this month.
