This previous week I had some time off from work on Wednesday afternoon and for 3 hours I had such fun again at Dots Quilts. Dot was so nice to have me there again so I could learn the actual quilting with the sewing machine on my cushion that we began at her workshop.
It was so amazing experiencing Dot and her daughter, Natalie's passion for fabric and working with it! Dot told me how she liked to work with fabrics that reflected light... and also when quilting, she liked to use a thread a little bit lighter than the fabric as to reflect the most light.
And so I was taught to quilt free-hand lines on the back of my cushion cover... whoooheee... some even crossing over :)
The front part of my cushion is also progressing ... all is now stitched together and Dot inspired me to also start doing this free-hand quilt lines through some of the blocks. Can not wait to try this out!!
