Mrs. Moen's Mystery Roosters

Here it is....cut out, sewn together, quilted and binding on. This was a fun mystery project and so easy. I couldn't figure out what was coming when Nina Lisa put orange and red together but I love the roosters. I'm afraid it is going to take me years to feel comfortable machine quilting tho. My loops are more jerky than smooth and I still get a few puckers if I'm not careful but it sure beats taking small things to the quilter to do and not see again for a few weeks. The buttons I chose for the eyes make my roosters look a little startled. Maybe the sun came up too early even for them too.
I've got all the red and cream blocks cut out for a Snowball quilt now so I can start sewing on that. Still haven't taken my machine in to be serviced. Got to do that soon but I hate giving up my sewing time even for a few days.

That is so cute! I love their eyes. Don't worry about your machine quilting - with practice it gets MUCH smoother.

So cool! I agree with Brenda, don't worry; you have to machine quilt to get better at it, we all have:-)

I think it looks great! I quilt most of my stuff myself and have found that fusible batting is the way to go. I use spray baste for larger quilts but the fusible batting is amazing. You just create your quilt sandwich, iron, flip it over, pull out any puckers from the back and iron it again.

Awesome table runner....I love the rooster blocks! Your machine quilting will become better every time, and these little projects are perfect to get started on.
