Anyway, I kinda goofed on some of the triangles and make the crosshatching small... it looks ok but it's a real pain.. of course, the larger cross hatching is almost as bad since I can't seem to get it lined up right every time. I'm having some issues with my machine, too, which doesn't help. I don't think the new ruler base is going to work as well as I was hoping it would. For one thing, there's a small gap between it and the machine head right in front of the needle. Other times, Mo'e just seems to want to go off in another direction when I'm TRYING to get him to ride right next to the ruler. I think I'll blame it on the weather LOL. Well, it is stinkin' HOT here and I've lowered the a/c down to 73degrees.
Ok, here's part of what I have done so far....
See what I mean about tiny cross hatching? If it was in every block, I wouldn't be doing it. There are four floral blocks in the row... I have finished the crosshatching in three. The next row has blank blocks that I have to fill with the 'loops' (like in the tiny crosshatching) around the edges and cross hatching in the middle.
If you're standing close, it looks kinda ugly in spots, so I'm going to make sure that no one gets an upclose look - from a distance it will be fine. And it's for me and I love it despite it's quilting flaws :).
I thought I would just whip right through this and have it done by July 31st, but now that I'm actually working on it and knowing that hubby has dr appt tomorrow and we'll probably be going over to his son's either Thurs or Fri to see his daughter who is visiting from Georgia, I think it's going to take longer than I'd planned. Oh well, it's already taken almost 8 years to get it this far... another week or so won't hurt.
