I titled this quilt Not Too Proud (String Quilt) because although I love it, I did not do a very good job quilting it. Though, to defend myself, it was my very first quilt that I quilted on my New Joy Quilting Frame. The most valuable lesson that I learned was that I needed the stitch regulator. I hesitated in purchasing it because it was so noisy in the store, what a mistake. But I did learn from it and purchased one right away. I finished it a while ago, but did not get to bind it until the other night. And I do not consider a quilt finished until it is bound.
So I took a much needed break and went outside. And this is what captured my attention...
a beautiful butterfly on a coneflower/Echinacea. Wish I was a better picture taker.
I then had the courage to try quilting again using the stitch regulator. My second quilt (Split 9-patch) came out much better. I know it takes practice and time, but sometimes I am a bit impatient.
So for now I am content and looking forward to quilting another one.
