Practice Makes Perfect!!!!!

I loaded a practice piece on today and started practicing my custom quilting.  Not bad for the very first time I ever tried any of this.  I am using a contrasting thread so I can see my mistakes, but on the "real" practice piece I will use coordinating thread so my thread tracks aren't so visible.  I certainly have a LONG way to go, but you gotta start somewhere.  Maybe one day I will be able to have a prize winning freehand custom quilt like my friend Lane! 

Have a great day and give someone a hug!  You never know what someone is feeling and that hug may just give them the uplift they need.  Of course, make sure it is someone you know or at least who you are in conversation with----you can get in trouble for hugging random strangers :c)!



  1. Enjoy the practice! It is bittersweet and some quilts will be terrific and some will be disastrous. Like kids, you gotta love each one. Be well! And, I'm feeling your hug. Lane

  2. Fantastic fun!! Can't wait to try it out myself. And I know you will have the prize winning quilt one day!!

  3. I'm so digging the combined pattern...May I be so bold to suggest you paint it when you're finished?
