Windmill Quilting

The windmill quilt is quilted. I decided to machine quilt it. I was originally going to handquilt around the windmill with bright colours of embroidery floss but there are only so many hours in the day so I decided to machine quilt it. I think I was just getting the hang of it by the end. The stitch length is not very even and the quilting is not that smooth, but I did get the tension right so the back doesn't look too bad. I've chosen a fabric for the binding so I've just got to cut it out and sew it on.

It's really pretty! I don't see any 'rough' quilting at all! :> Nice! I'm kindda inspired to sew something with plain white muslin now... It really brings out the fabric print very well.

That quilt is so pretty. I really love the blue and red together. Hopefully one day my machine quilting will looks as good.

I like the quilting. I am in the process of practicing free motion quilting myself, but I can't get the tension right and then follows frustration.:) I am planning on quilting three baby quilts today, walking foot it is. :)

I just love the color combination. I only machine quilt smaller projects otherwise I'd be tearing my hair out trying to manage a big quilt!
