What is better than one little blue and white Schnibbles table topper? Why two of them of course.
My border fabric arrived in no time flat, and I was able to get the tops finished this past weekend. Now I have to machine quilt them myself, which I am dreading. I got out a couple of machine quilting books and practiced free hand quilting--loops and stippling and so on. It all just looked so uneven and amateurish. I suppose I will go back to my trusty stitch in the ditch or cross hatch straight line quilting and just get it done. Believe me, I have half a mind to do hand quilting! These little quilts measure about 25" square, so it would not take me too long.
I would give anything to be able to machine quilt these little projects myself and do a really good job. Do any of you have any advice or book recommendations to help a novice machine quilter get up to speed so they can quilt their own small projects and be proud of the results?
I have a feeling the answer is hours and hours of practice!
