I drew the rosebud until I thought it looked like a rosebud - maybe my mind just decided it did!
And then I quilted! This one is rather close.
Next was the spiral tree. I really like the looks of this (not meaning mine!) but my spirals always leave a little to be desired!
Then McTavishing - oh wow! I love the look of McTavishing! Maybe not mine though - at least not yet! I quilted a rose in the middle because I didn't have anything that I could quilt around. Then I tried the McTavishing. My machine is not cooperating very well.
So another try - I just filled the area and this was better.
I was able to get to a quilt show for about an hour the other day. I really investigated the machine quilting - maybe some of mine isn't too bad after all! Oh, I was also able to try a Gammill longarm with a regulated stitch - that was incredible. Now if I just had an extra $10,000!
