Whoo Yooo,

I have talked about my attempt to machine quilt this double star quilt. It's my first attempt at machine quilting and I did not have fun. I didn't think I would ever get the quilting finished . It would sit in the corner for weeks before I would get the urge to work on it.

I used it for a table covering this weekend. As you can see here, it is very heavily quilted, which was one reason it took forever.

I really do love these stars. That center star is a 3-inch paper-pieced block. I forgot just how many pieces were in it, but it was a lot.

I am not a bit proud of the quilting on this one. In fact it ruined an othewise nicely pieced item.

But I decided not to get to upset over the failure. There is a positive side. I can use it as a tablecloth and not really worry if it gets food spilled on it!

It looks really pretty to me! I am in the process of machine quilting my first quilt too. I feel like I am wrestling a huge bear! :-) I am hopeful that someday soon I can celebrate like you! Congratulations and have a great day!

Lovely job, even if it was frustrating. Machine quilting on a DSM takes a lot of practice to master, so don't be hard on yourself. Your table looks wonderful.
