|This is not stained - it's 'aged' to this color.|
I chose a piece of toile fabric from my stash and decided to practice my free motion quilting skills. I don't know what was going on with my machine, but I had so much trouble with my bobbin thread.... but in the end I found that when I held my 'sandwich' real tight, my bobbin sewed beautifully. So it all came back on me really.... right?
UPDATE 2.21.2014 - the Alabama Chanin inspired scarf is done. You can see the finished scarf, along with a mini-tutorial of how it was constructed, here.
