I am now in the quilting stage. I am doing a feathering directional texture design. It can be a bit tricky at times. I have to stop and think about where I am going.
I found myself getting a little sloppy tonight. So I decided to put it down for tonight and come back to it tomorrow. (I think I'm just sleepy....). I also am having trouble with a lot of my pieced seams. I think I need to work on piecing, and perhaps, piece an entire quilt with open seams. I found that with seams to one side, I am getting "stuck"(while FMQ), so I jerk on the fabric, causing stitches to go where I didn't intend! I am also getting a few puckers on the front. Probably from all that jerking and tugging!
Anyway, I have to get this sucker done by May 12. That's the baby shower. I have one more dilemma. I used Moda's Vintage Modern charm pack for the piecing. I though I could get yardage of the fabric for the binding, no problem. But, NO! The yardage won't be released until early May. I called the FatQuarter Shop. She expects it to ship out to the store on May 4. Maybe she gets it in a couple of days. Then maybe I get mine in a couple of days. Whew! That is cutting it waaaaaaay close! I may have to find something to coordinate for my binding. I guess I will figure it out when I get the quilting done.
One last problem. I miscalculated when I would be done with this quilt! has anyone else done this. Well, problem is, it's on my quilt!
