Last week it was my turn to use my midarm quilting machine. I quilted a top that has been waiting for several years. Its fun to have it done, but I can surely tell that I have improved at piecing. If you look closely, you will see that several star points are lost. I hope I wouldn't let that happen now. The quilt's name is Oh My Stars.
Here is a detail of the quilting.
I gave a demonstration on rotary cutting to some brand new quilters (and some not so new) at a brand new quilt guild called Quilters Anonymous today. It's always good to be reminded of basics.
To control your ruler better, place one or two fingers of your left hand off the ruler and hold ruler in place with fingertips, not the flat of your hand.
Remember to be safe and always lock your blade when not in use.
