Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,
I’ve been working on my Regatta Quilt. I joined Roseanne’s Regatta QAL a little late. It was a no pressure QAL in which there were no time limits so I didn’t feel like I had to rush to catch up or even keep up. Many have already finished theirs and I am as always running behind. It seemed like it was an easy pattern from Block M Quilts so I joined in the party. You can see my previous progress here. Roseanne mentioned she will have a final blog coming up. I hope I can have mine finished in time.
I made my quilt sandwich and had a plan for the quilting last Friday. I recently upgraded to Craftsy Unlimited and took a Jacquie Gering class on walking foot quilting. It was called Next Steps With Your Walking Foot. I really like the idea she showed me about making some gentle curves across the quilt. After a four passes it will look like a braided line. I made a template that would fit just short of my 2 inch strips out of a heavy-duty file folder. Why buy it when you can make it? I’m trying to be thrifty. In the first picture I’ve made 2 passes on the off white fabric. My very nice husband drilled a hole in the middle and I intend to position the hole over the place where the two seams meet to keep it symmetrical. Then I will be able to mark the next 2 seams. Take a look.
