    Pink purple - playing with custom quilting

    Well it's done -- that's all I can say. I did a happy dance. I chose different blocks, triangles, borders and corner designs from the ProStitcher which came with HQ Amara. A lot of self learning -- a lot of time spent ripping out stitches. No bad words, surprising, but a few glasses of wine. I resolved that it was not going to be perfect, but good enough. The batting is pieced Tuscany wool scraps. Size is 56 x 68. The backing is check shirting flannel, and since its my GD's favorite color, I think she will get it for her Nov birthday, or maybe xmas. Right now, she has borrowed her brother's xmas quilt. She has other quilts, but they rotate around from one room, one kid to another. I'm happy they are being used, and not folded in a cupboard (to save for later). Later is now.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

      Very nice! Isn't it fun to try out the different patterns? I've had my Gammill/Statler Stitcher for 9 years now and I'm very happy with it. I tried FMQ with a different longarm and couldn't get the hang of it. That's when I ended up buying the Gammill.
      Your quilt with all the different patterns is beautiful!

              So beautiful! Is this the same quilt that one of the stitches was originally mid-sized? It looks incredible now! Congratulations!

                I love your quilting and it looks so perfect. You talk like you are just a beginner or else you are trying a new machine or new software or something?? Anyways my point is that your quilting is really pretty and no signs of being a beginner that I can see. Your GD will love that one! I hope I did not totally misunderstand you being a beginner and I did not mean to hurt your feelings by saying that.
