Last night I was thinking about the cot quilt and decided it was time to 'man-up' and show you what I have so far. So, here it is all pinned together ready for my attempt at machine quilting:
See that little owl in the bottom left hand corner with the worried look on his face? He doesn't usually look like that, I swear. I think he's just cr@pping himself about the prospect of me ruining him with my lack of machine quilting ability!
Rest assured little owl, I will be doing my research before launching into the machining. Luckily there are a number of 'quilting for dummies' websites that really do dumb-down the whole process to a level a novice, like me, can understand.
To tell you the truth, I am actually not too worried about the machine quilting. What I am worried about it whether the machine will be able to handle the thickness of the quilt, as I decided to use an old double bed quilt we had lying around rather than buying special wadding. As the quilt is quite good quality it is relatively thick, so I am hoping that the machine will be able to handle it. I guess time will tell!
