I fell in love with the idea of getting a treadle up and running.
I spent a whole day cleaning out and re-organizing my studio space.
I treadled and treadled and treadled some more ---less snapping thread, but sometimes it happens anyway!
Still, I wanted to post a picture of my progress on my hand quilting – it IS coming along, and I WILL get back to it. As soon as the treadling novelty wears off! LOL!
I love the texture of the quilting. I’ve tried to keep my stitches small, but I have big hands – so they are what they are. I’ve had to stab stitch through many seams, and that brown South African fabric is a tough weave to hand quilt through. But I will persevere!
That is IF I can stop treadle-practicing!
These are the 9 patch parts that got sewn last evening while watching a movie on Net Flix. If you are wanting to learn to treadle, JUST DO IT!
But don’t expect that you’ll be able to walk away and leave it alone so you can get your hand quilting done. It’s one or the other at this stage of the game! I think I’d have better luck if I left my hand sewing to getting up extra early to get it done in the morning, because in the evening…I’m ready for pieces to go through the machine!
