Finding out that our daughter and her husband are giving us our first grandchild, so ....... grandma got busy. I have not done much for DM quilting, so here goes----- Our family is a true ranch family and true cowboys, so this fabric was a great choice for a quilt. The salmon fabric was a little plain, so thought I'd use my embroidery machine and add some saddles.
Then I found some sulky thread that had all the colors needs, so I used a teardrop type motif all over the body of the quilt. Not too bad for the first try!!
This is a crib size quilt and it didn't take as long as I had thought, so on to the borders. This quilt has two--salmon that I put hearts and swirls in it and then the yellow border I tried my hand at J hooks. Not bad!!
Now I am working on the binding. I am hand sewing on a yellow binding. I am moving on to another one to see what new things I can come up with.
I must say that the quilting world really push long arm quilting, but I am finding that my domestic machine, Pfaff C1100, is doing just fine--think I'll keep it.
I plan on working on a couple small projects and then I am going to move to a larger quilt. Working on small projects and seeing that I am successful gives me the courage to go BIG!!!
