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
