Last Wednesday my machine started acting funny. I was almost done quilting a quilt for Fons and Porter when it stopped working all together. What horrid timing. I needed to have it to them by the first. In a panic I called my trusty neighbor, Neil. He used to work for Bernina, has engineered machines for Handi Quilter and is my go to when I need my machine serviced. He was available and I ran my machine over. Apparently the brushes in my motor are shot. He is fixing it.
I have many good neighbors who quilt so I was able to get the quilt finished and off to Fons and Porter. So crisis solved. But without a machine I’ve been squaring up already made blocks. Aren’t the trimmings pretty?
Making a pattern for a Joseph’s Coat Quilt, which will probably only be a pillow. Papers from the recycling bin taped together work well for this.
Today, while I wait for my machine, I’m planning on cutting out and prepping the pieces.
If I get that far, I’ll be using my Featherweight to sew the blocks I squared up.
What are you up to today?
