Once the foot arrived, I used a blog post on Sew 4 Home to straight line quilt. Since this was my first time, I practiced on some scrap pieces before working my way up to the real thing.
Quilting the real thing resulted in some choice curse words when my bobbin thread had some issues. It was frustrating to no end having to start and restart when the thread screwed up but with a little push from Chris to keep going I finally found my rhythm.
After the quilting was complete, I trimmed the excess off and then read about binding on Make It and Love It. Again, I tested it on my scrap pieces before working on the real thing.
More pinning and sewing and I was left with a finished quilt that I'm pretty proud of!
I feel like the binding really adds to the finished look.
Have you worked on any projects that included some issues along the way?
