I finally made time, and room to baste my Hungry Caterpillar quilt.
Then I tackled this crazy task of quilting. I had gone an bought a bunch of threads. A special one for the back, and one to match the other colors of the quilt.
Aren't they beautiful?
So I started...and this happened...
Oh boy, is this gonna be a rough one. I forgot to test my tension. It is hard to tell in the picture but the bobbin thread can be seen on the top of the quilt! :( This made me very sad. Had to dig out my seam ripper and start again. I only did one blue square. I don't think I even have a picture of that. Then I decided to move onto the purple border that goes around all the blocks. And then onto the purple pinwheels. Here's what I ended up with.
I love how they are coming out but then I realized something...]
Do you see that puff that is forming in the middle of the pinwheel?
I wanted to quilt the polka dot fabric the same way as the purple but then it will puff up even more.
What do I do????
I really don't want to have to take all those stitches out and do a different pattern. I just don't know if I can handle that.
Please. Please help me.
(oh I wish I knew how to put your buttons here too.)
