    Another "wild quilting" adventure

    Here's another practice piece I worked on this weekend. I'm getting the hang of it, just quilting up what feels right for the next design. It's a mix of a lot of different styles that I've been studying for a long time, Karlee Porter, Christina Cameli and Ann Fahl to name three. I finally decided it was time to stop studying how these women quilt and jump in and try it for myself! One more practice piece and then I'll try it on a larger, nicer piece of navy batik I've been saving. Wish me luck!

            Silly me. DH says I posted it upside down. I think he might be right. I like it better this way.

                    The padding is fantastic, I think you no longer need more lessons because that is a professional job, I expect to see more of his works

                          Fantastic, Cyndi! Do you freehand these designs or draw it out first so you know what you want to sew out?

                            I worked the center of it out with paper and pencil in a sketchbook I'm keeping of ideas. My goal is to be able to sew without a sketch to guide me. There are just so many design options to learn and I'm just beginning to quilt like this. Here is my inspiration: http://www.karleeporter.com/

                              Cyndi.. I think your there))) What machine are you using?
                              My Bailey is pretty "clunky" and to get the consistant stitching is difficult for me... I know i'm going to upgrade at some point, but want to get my money worth out of it...LOL
                              Plus not sure of how to get rid of this one... not into Craig List etc.... and i don't imagine anyone will take it in trade...GB
