I finally tried machine quilting and to my surprise, it was not as scary as I thought it would be! I am sure it will take lot more practice to come close to perfection but for now, I can see my quilts get finished.
It was a great feeling to put the binding on the quilt. It had been a while since I did that!
It is one of my favorite things about the whole process. You work with raw edges for so long during the whole process of cutting and piecing the fabrics. If you are a hand quilter, it is even longer!
There is nothing like turning over the edge of the quilt while you are sewing the binding and take a peek every now and then to see how the quilt is going to look in the end!
As a quilter it has been always about enjoying the process and not rush to the final result I was afraid that if I started machine quilting, I will get into a production mode and not enjoy the journey.
I really never learned how to use my wonderful Viking for machine quilting!
All I had to do was to try!
I have been getting ready for my long awaited trip to India and need to finish a few projects before I leave.
I can not wait to baste another top and practice some more!
