On wednesday I spent some time at Modern Domestic. I was working on my cat face quilt, the one inspired by Melissa Averinos.
I was working on one of those fancy little Bernina machines, a classroom machine. It was all computerized, so I took a photo to remember how it was set.
About a third of the applique is now stitched down. I was having a little trouble getting the feed dogs to work after raising the foot to pivot the quilt. So, the stitching is a little inconsistent fot that reason.
You can see places where it got stuck, and where I had to push it a little to get it going again.
The subject of my funny cat face quilt is Lulu, my jet-black, talking, feral rescue cat. You can see the funny expression on her face in the original photo.
I'm going back soon to work on the quilt, maybe even finish it One of my ideas for 2016 was to be more of a maker, but the year hasn't gone exactly to script. Making some quilts stayed in the back of my mind, so I'm happy to be working on a project.
