So, have you come to a conclusion? Are you a curve-loving person or a straight line-kind of person? I think I may have stitched teams and am now cheering for the curves. Interesting. I just can not trace a stitched line to save my life, which seems to be what straight line quilting is all about lately. Anyway, this week I stitched this crazy thing...
Instead of these pretty Pine Needles by Leah at the Free Motion Quilting Project. Argh!
I was nearly ready to throw in the towel (or quilting sandwich - what ever). Not to fear, though! Leah Day to the rescue! Out of the blue Miss Leah emailed me (Hi, if you're reading this!) and asked me to try out her Machingers, Supreme Slider and the Little Genie Magic Bobbin Washers and tell her what I think. Well, of course I will! (Duh, who wouldn't!?!?) So, she shipped a sample over and I will give them a try using this week's pattern. I will let you all know my honest thoughts after giving them a try! I am most excited about the Supreme Slider as the bump in my machine bed seems to always be my problem (or at least my current excuse).
And how will we test out her goodies? With this pretty pattern: H2O.
We can use this handy-dandy video:
