A baby quilt finish!

This is a UFO that was languishing for quite a while … the blocks are left overs from a jelly roll quilt and some creative piecing as there was not enough blocks to complete a whole quilt …  It was fun to make!  I did quilt it with wavy serpentine lines.  Pretty boring!  In hindsight – I should have just done an all-over free-motion and it would have been faster!  And my machine did not like doing the serpentine lines.  When I started, I had tension issues and I finally changed the needle.  That helped.  Then towards the end of the quilting, it started skipping stitches.  Groan.  So the machine has gone back to the machine doctor … they have a great warranty on their work.  It was only the beginning of August when I got it back, so it should be a free repair.IMG_1044

  1. Very sweet quilt Gail!
    As for the serpentine lines, did you go forward/backward or side to side?
    I find my machine performs better side to side…although it feels really odd to be stiching sideways. I have to check myself often as my bed tends to lean after a while! Lol


    • Thanks Terry. I had the walking foot on, put on the serpentine stitch and went from corner to corner and then around 2″ intervals … I know what you mean about your machine performs better going in one direction … I’ve learned that it’s ME that performs better in one direction! (Ha Ha)
