I spent a good 3 hours painstakingly learning to "stipple" (at least I think thats what I was doing) FMQ on my red white and blue lynnebobsquarepants. The front looked okay. The back didnt.
If any clever FMQers want to tell me what I'm doing wrong feel free, though I should point out I've been through all the tension settings and it all looks like that. And I also made sure I was not pushing/pulling the fabric. I dont know. Anyway, the front looked okay, then I dropped the rotary cutter on it. Little ****er takes 3 goes to cut through one layer of fabric completely, yet I drop it and it sliced very nicely through all three layers...
This is the back by the way, (yes, its not as faulty as the other one, no I have no idea what I did differently, other than cease to care...) the front looks nicer, but you dont see the quilting madness on photos of the front so I thought I'd treat you to pics that really show how carried away I got. Is there a rule as to how many patterns you put on one wee cushion? Probably. Do I care? Naahhh.
Okay so these pics all look less than pretty, I was hoping to be posting lovely pictures of finished cushions. Nevermind. I will at some point, but not in the next week - The narcoleptic is leaving the cupboard... My man is taking me to Edinburgh for a long weekend :-) Yay! So happy! All very last minute, decided and booked this afternoon, leaving tomorrow! Bet the good weather breaks and it pours... I DONT CARE! (Really really excited!) Might even go see some Monkeys... (fingers crossed).
