So first I thought I would share a little video of me doing machine applique in my small sewing machine with a very small throat. So if you haven't done a pictorial quilt like this you can get an idea of the time it takes when you're stitching down your fabrics. It involves a lot of foot lifting and quilt turning.... (forgive the video, this was my first time trying to record myself sewing, next time I think I will use my Nikon camera instead of my old video camera... for better quality, but you get the idea.)
Well after all that I found a solution to what I felt was a problem.. an unbalanced quilt. I added some flowered fabric down on the left corner of the quilt and while it's not perfect I do believe it helps a lot.
Here is the before and after:
As I have said before, I learned this technique from a Craftsy class called "Pictorial Techniques with Machine Applique", which is currently 25% off. I can tell you it is definitely worth the money, especially on sale. #ad
