Now for the confession - I haven't the faintest idea how to actually quilt. This quilt top has been folded on a shelf for the past 6 months - a shame if you ask me. For some reason I love, love, love fabric, cutting and piecing tops but I am totally scared to actually quilt the darn thing. I guess I feel that I don't know what I am doing. Any advice or tips that you can share would be awesome. I tried to do some quilting on a wall hanging, but I am not too happy with the results. I don't like the way the quilting lines distorted the quilt design. Maybe I should try quilting in the ditch instead? A different color thread? Or go for a larger overall pattern? But if I do that, how do I actually do it on a regular sewing machine without it getting all bunched up and out of place? Whew...so many questions. I guess that's what happens when you try something new.
