Two more borders done -

So - the Free-Motion thing didn't work - ;))

When I turned the first corner on the Valentine's Day Sudoku Quilt - the backing got tucked under and stitched down. I caught it before I had gone too far so I decided to un-stitch the whole thing and start over - ;))

Plan B - a different stencil - and back to the walking foot -

It took me a minute to figure out how many "passes" I would have to make to complete the pattern - and no - two is not the answer - ;))

I tried to get a good shot of the texture for you -

Because - as you can see - it hardly shows up at all - which is probably a good thing - ;))

Next up - the March St. Patrick's Day Sudoku Quilt -
And another stencil for the walking foot -
This time the number of "passes" IS two - ;))

Doesn't show much on this one either -

I think the next one will show a bit better -

But we'll see - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Looks great from here! And I'm thinking four passes on the Valentine border? (Tricky little devil, that one!)

I am sorry to hear that the FMQ didn't work. But the walking foot quilting looks good.

that border design looks to me like a lot of stopping and starting. Even by hand, I like a continuous line, stopping only to add more thread to the needle.

Good save. I love the stencil design.

I know this quilting is so tricky isn't it. I am trying to learn too and finding the walking foot much better suited to me somehow..The FMQ is just too free for me! Anyway, I think this is looking fabulous.
