When I finished a quilt, I usually tied them or I hand quilted them. A few years ago, I made this quilt for my grand child to be. I did machine quilting for the first time. I was not very good at it. In fact I was really bad ! I did not give this to my grand daughter because the machine quilting was so awful.
I started reading machine sewing quilt books and watching tutorials to help me. I practiced and practiced. I am getting better at machine quilting.
But definitely need more practice. My grand daughter was born in April 2009. I have made her a Halloween costume and dresses. I am working on a Christmas quilt for her. I also would love a long arm machine, for now I will practice with my regular machine.
