The new machine stitches smoother than any I have owned, but underneath gets all snaggled every few inches. I can't figure out how to fix it. This is a Singer machine with drop in bobbin, so I can't adjust the bobbin tension. Very big bummer. I have the book now and plan to fiddle with it some more when I get home.
I did get a chance to sew some small things on it. This is the wonky square for Common Threads first month. This is Don't Call Me Becky's.
This photo is really dark, but it shows that I have started a sewing cushion from the Alabama Stitch Book.
The leaf stencil shapes were placed using a blue sharpie. I used two different colored cotton shirts. White for the top and yellow underneath. I can't wait to finish sewing it so that I can cut-- my favorite part!
Here are some sketches in my journal about quilts I would like to do. I was thinking about trying a quilt marathon week at the end of the summer. I can't remember who the other blogger was that did this- Crazy Mom Quilts? She made a quilt top a day.
