I was enjoying myself immensely all the while I was chain piecing and using my new little doohickey to cut the pieces apart.
Of course disaster struck. Doesn't it always when you are feeling sure of yourself. Look at those stitches. Somehow the machine had come all unthreaded while I has merrily sewing away. Since I was stitching like a well oiled machine, I had a lot of seams to pick out and redo. Jeesh.
All's well that ends well. The borders are done. Now I have to sandwich them and quilt them. They are going to be the first things done in free motion on the Juki. Wish me luck.
The fabric is beautiful! Love colors of autumn. I cannot free motion quilt, hope to see your successful results.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing what you and the Juki do! The fabrics are just perfect for fall sewing.ReplyDelete
Sigh-hate it when the machine doesn't stay with the forward motion of my zen! lolReplyDelete
The blocks turned out great-love the colors!
Isn't that always the way? But you ended up with some gorgeous squares anyway. :-) Have fun with the new machine. I can't wait to see the results.ReplyDelete
Go forth and be brave.....you can do it! Some day I'm going to try quilting but for now I will live vicariously through you. ;-)ReplyDelete
Been there, done that - many times, and it's always frustrating. Your blocks look fabulous. I've always wondered if people like the thread cutter device.ReplyDelete
Sorry it was difficult but I LOVE the squares now.ReplyDelete
Don't know how I got so behind on your posts!ReplyDelete
Sorry about that. Looks like you're having fun with your Juki even though it couldn't keep up with you. Love those pretty blocks!
You don't need luck! You can do it!ReplyDelete
