Quilt finished, Video, garden

I finished the treadle quilting on my feather quilt.

Here are some pictures (click picture to enlarge)


I did a video of how I did the quilting (bad audio but you can see me working on it)

And the weather was great today so I got some more garden pictures

Happy quilting

    Very interesting video. I’ve never really got my head around FMQ; my sewing machine is pretty basic, and all the tutorials you see have stitch regulators and very wide throats on the machines, and so on. Seeing it done in a very straightforward way on such a simple machine encourages me to think I might just give it a go after all. And thanks for the tip about not trying to go too fast, and co-ordinating the speed of your hand and your machine.

      great….give it a try….it doesnt have to be as difficult as some people make it out to be…….make a small practice quilt sandwich and just play with it

    looks great, quilt and garden :-))

  5. Your FMQ just keeps getting better & better! And then there’s that beautiful garden. We’re enjoying our bleeding hearts, tulips, the forget-me-nots & iris are starting to bloom, the fragrance of the lilacs is amazing, and the poppies & peonies are getting ready to pop! Love spring!!!

    Tim I could not see where the top thread is – the spindle for the spool had nothing on it? I really must have a go and practise you make it look so easy but I am sure it isn’t.

    Thank you for that machine quilting tutorial. It’s very helpful. Do you have your thread on a separate thread holder? Your gardens are inspiring!

    Thanks for showing the video! I’m going to have to spend more time with my treadle. Can’t imagine being able to sew that smoothly on it – yet.
