I love machine quilting. I don't try to follow a pattern or markings because that is just super frustrating for me. I do however love to "doodle" and draw freehand just filling in the spaces as I go. That's how my brain/hands work together. I know it's not the best method for everyone, but I find it hugely entertaining and enjoyable.
So I started quilting this quilt this weekend. Even though it is a KING size, I can manage it with my Janome Horizon without much difficulty at all. I had never really gotten brave enough to try feathers...so this is my first attempt. I am using the light/dark areas as my "channels" and I outilined all the red squares first to provide stabilization.
So far, so fun! Only, I ran out of the bobbin color and the red over the weekend. Grrrrrrr... So I am off to pick up more spools of thread and get back to work!
Enjoy every stitch!
