When you don't let technical inexperience keep you from trying out a fun quilting design that popped into your head. :)
So many firsts on this quilt! The main focus, though, is getting more acquainted with my rulers. Working on the main thread right now, filler work with MicroQuilter to come later.
Plenty of imperfections, but I'm making myself unpick only the very worst slip-ups on this study piece. Definitely going to take a lot of practice to get an eye for 1/8 inch spacing with curved rulers, but I'll get there!
And in the meantime, I'll have a really pretty learning piece.
[By the way, this was Flimsy #3 for my secondary 18 in 2018 list.]
Edited later: Now that all the primary quilting is in, and I only need to do the white and red microfills on this mini, I'm thinking two things.
1. This is pretty, even with the technical wobbles!
2. It would have been even prettier with McTavishing in the center background instead of echo work. It had occured to me to try that there, but I shied away from it since there were so many firsts about this birthday-gift-turned-study-quilt already. I hereby vow to stop shying away from that fill. The next time my eye thinks it would be fitting for a space, I will DO IT. Yes! :)

- Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love a wide variety of styles and techniques encompassing both machine and hand work. I am a longarm quilter who can work for you. I enjoy any style, from pantographs to all-over to full custom, ranging from traditional to modern. I love bringing vintage tops to life and am willing to work with a challenging quilt top. Instagram: lyncc_quilts
