Kahawai Run

It doesn't matter how experienced a sewer/quilter you are every once in a while you can run into machine problems. I had decided to start the quilting on this gyotaku piece yesterday afternoon but my machine had other ideas. After fiddling around with tensions and changing needles and thread - trying different brands - I decided to give up for the day. You can see the one and a half fish I managed to get done. I didn't want to cover up the texture of the print too much so basically I am thread sketching over the outlines of the fish and then i will free machine quilt the negative spaces so the fish come forward from the background
