Guess what I'm working on...

On Elizabeth's quilt, no less. And I'm having fun even though I have a tension headache and sore shoulders from the strain of trying to stay on the line. April was here and I decided to just try and load the pattern on the table. I really wasn't going to try it out. I was probably going to chicken out but you know April. She said do it and I did. Now I'm glad.

The design is called Popcorn. I can't remember at the moment who designed it but I like it. It is coming out pretty good.

This is the laser on the point where I need to start a new row. Hopefully tomorrow I can work on it again. It is not fast. Especially since this is my first time. I'm hoping to pick up speed as I get better at it.

Here is a close up taken with my camera set on Macro. April showed me how to use that setting on my camera. I can get a really good closeup without it being blurry. You can see that my stitches are not even. Some are big and some are small and tight. I am not moving with consistency. I had to speed my machine up to get a smaller stitch because I was having to move so slow and because of that I get small and big stitches. What do you think?

Now I need to start looking for other pantograph patterns or April says for me to draw my own. We will see. I'm so glad to have another tool under my belt to use on the frame.

Have a great day!

  1. I think it looks great. Congrats on trying something new and succeeding! I am sure the pantograph possibilities are endless especially if you can even make your own. I believe that the popcorn pattern on this quilt will make it extra special. I need to learn to use the macro setting on the camera--seems like it is very useful. It is a great closeup to see details.
    I proceeded with my project from yesterday's post. I wasn't very confident but the more it goes together the more I am liking(?) it. Looks like we are having a productive weekend.
