Dwirling...Yippeee...Hurrayyyyyy!


I dwirled! Can you see it? Ok, I admit I might need some more practice. But, I dwirled!!! And I loved it. It's so ... textured. I like that heavy quilting so much. I have some places where I couldn't see my line and missed. I have some places where .. I just didn't follow the "echo-ing" so well. But all in all, I'm just thrilled with it. I'm so happy to be doing something other than stippling. Not that I don't love that, too, but this really rocks.
I'm not even too afraid of it being seen close up. Don't look for the boo boo's. They are there. I can live with this though. I intentionally used white quilting thread, for the learning curve on this one. I really needed to be able to see it and with all the colors in this top, sometimes that was hard to do. I'ma gonna dwirl some more very soon. I may even venture into something else on the Pajama Quilter DVD. You never can tell.......
Oh man...I forgot to put the duck in the pics. My kid will never forgive me. I did correct her term paper for English tonight and printed it out and put it on the table so she wouldn't forget it in the morning. Perhaps I can use that act of kindness for duck forgiveness....think it'll work??? She's duck obsessed!
Later....I gotta make more tops to dwirl.....LOL

Looks great! I have the DVD, but haven't tried dwirling yet - haven't tried any of the techniques actually, but now I'm inspired.

Very cool quilting!!! I think I need to check out that DVD--it looks so great!

I think it looks fabulous!!!!!!! Did you see the quilt Vera's got on her blog today? I never would have thought to incorporate that flower into the dwirling. That's a flower that PJ taught us too!! I just drew on some paper I was throwing out and LOVED it. Even better than my swirly thing I was doing. I don't think it matters that your echo's aren't great (even though I think they are) they're not meant to be perfect on this technique!! Besides the more you do it, the better you should get as time goes on.

How many bobbins?

Nice dwirling. I love to dwirl, it is so much fun and really you can do what ever you want in there with it. I have 2 more customer baby quilts to do it on, so I can't wait to get started on them.
Yours looks really good too.

Your dwirling looks really nice. I just got this dvd about a week ago, and it's wonderful. Lots of stuff to try!

Looks great to me! Just add that to your list of "I can do that" on your life resume.
