I have been FMQ like crazy this week. So to start off with, here is my Leah Day homework for the week. I decided to make a sewing machine cover out of this orphaned block. I stippled in the inner star and the purple star tips.
|I had some difficulty stitching over the center because of all the seams coming together there. I think that's why the scale was somewhat off.|
|I was pleased with my star tips.|
|I didn't break thread, just stitched in the ditch to the next point.|
|Back looks good, I think.|
|I am not happy with this filler stitching.|
|Then I started on my Quokka Quilt QAYGFMQQAL blocks.|
|Happy with this block.|
|Then I started this block. See the skipped stitches?|
So my second question for Leah is why am I all of a sudden getting skipped stitches. I changed the needle right before the green block above. I was using good quality cotton thread. Any suggestions to fix this?
I finished my Noah's Ark quilt! I can't believe I got it done in a week, start to finish!
I also got 5 more blocks on my FMQ sampler quilted.
So, my stats this week are:
