On the Machine Today... 9/12/11

Every so often I get a quilt that just doesn't speak to me....  Just doesn't tell me how it wants to be quilted.  When this happens I spend a lot of time doing the S&S or what longarm quilters refer to as Standing & Staring.  After Standing & Staring for awhile there are a few of those quilts that just will not talk!

When a quilt is refusing to talk, a lot of times I just go for it...  start stitching and see what happens.  That is exactly what I'm doing today.  Going for it.  Making things up as I go along...




So far so good....

  5. Sometimes I have to load the quilt and commit to quilting it before the ideas start coming. I like what you are doing so far.
