I Learned to Meander!
Just a quick update on the pillowcases. I need to go finish them and get them in the mail but I am so thrilled with my progress I just had to share.
When I was contacted about making these pillowcases I was asked if i could mimic the quilting on the bed quilt these were being made to match (a photo was sent so I could see it). It was a meandering pattern, which many quilters are fond of, but it always intimidated me so I have never tried it. Well I agreed that I would try to match it and I think I did a pretty good job!
I started by meandering on a piece of paper because I figured if i could draw it I could quilt it. Mission Accomplished. I then proceeded to test it on two scraps of fabric - those also went well, so I bit the bullet and just started quilting the main panel of the pillowcases.
I am quite proud of the results and will be using this technique on one of my WIP's I want to finish. What about you? Have you tried any new quilting techniques lately?
Hope you are enjoying your day!
