- This is the first time I have done machine quilting on a quilt top that was sewn by someone other than me
- This is the first time I've used my quilting machine this year...yikes!
I have done some other sewing and plenty of projects on my embroidery machine but I hadn't actually done any quilts yet this year. I was pretty nervous about stitching her quilt top since it was hand stitched and had a few imperfections. When you put a quilt on a big quilting machine, if there are any imperfections the quilting will either hide them or make them MUCH worse depending on how bad the imperfections are and how good the quilter is. Here's the quilt top:
And this time she brought me a quilt top her daughter had sewn by hand and was very challenging and a new experience. She picked it up today and was very happy with it - yay for another happy customer!
