Ta DAh!

It's done!!
woo Hoo!

I wanted to quilt some straight lines...
but knew that my walking foot would NOT like the t-shirts
so I used tape, feed dogs down, free motion foot
and WAVY lines.

I marked the quilt one line at a time with tape at 4" intervals.
easy.

I just love the border
and am so happy I had some fabric in my stash for this one!
Chalk up another quilt that didn't require a shopping trip!!!
;)

Isn't the back fun???
I had some leftover half square triangles that just HAD to be included.
Don't you think?


Thanks for listening to me gab about this one
ALL week long!!!
It's fun to BRING YOU along on all my sewing adventures!!!
It sure makes the sewing more fun!!!
Have a great weekend!

I'm off to wash dishes at my big kid's formal dinner party!
I've been washing dishes for this party for the last few years.
I get to sample the gourmet food as I wash.
Not a BAD deal at all!!!!

  10. I would like to start quilting my own quilts and would love to know how you got your wavy lines so nice and even and symmetrical. I did some straight quilting beside tape on tablerunners for Christmas gifts but love the softness of the wavy lines for other projects.
