Try, Try, and Try Again

I must be ill 'cuz I'm trying it again--combining some machine quilting with a little bit of big stitch.  It may just be a go with this quilt too. I'm feeling good vibes in the air and of course, {metaphorically} keeping my fingers and toes crossed.

All I can say is, I must be in a finish-it-up mood or someone pushed my determination button.....

  5. Better you than me! I have tried machine quilting something of this size and I end up with far less hair than when I began! It's beautiful. Keep up the good work.

  6. I say go for it, Audrey. Once you figure what you can (and cannot) do with your walking foot, you'll have a great tool to fall back on time and time again. I combine machine and hand quilting all the time, and have a few suggestions that might be helpful if you ever want to chat about it.

  7. Looking great so far, I love your colours with this quilt! I find it v. difficult to machine quilt a big quilt, but sometimes it's all worth it!

  8. Oh I wish had that mood, today I have been very lazy. Hope I am not getting my husbands cold! So bad I am reheating leftovers for dinner tonight! Now that is pathetic Can't wait to see how this one turns out!

  10. Go You!! The machine quilt/big stitch combo is one of my favourites. Whatever it takes to get across the finish line.

  11. That's my favorite combo. I made a couple of quilts last year that I machine pieced in the ditch, then used hand quilting in the areas that actually show. The bonus is that the machine piecing acts as the basting for the handwork! I can't wait to see this one in all it's glory. Good for you!

  12. I'm going to follow this closely. I always machine quilt but the bit stitch with perle cotton intrigues me. Mixing them means I might actually finish the hand quilting part. Thanks!

  14. I'm going to give more consideration to having a determination button installed...
    I struggle with machine quilting in general and machine quilting large quilts in particular. I'll be watching your technique combining with great interest!
