2 months ago I couldn't even thread a machine..Today I am very proud of myself to say I just completed my 11th quilt..
well yesterday my newest 221 arrived, such a little cuttie! Now to think of a name for her. She makes a wonderful addition to my collection. And she runs so smoothly, she just purrs. I think I will take her to my sit and sew day, Wed. She looks even smaller than the other girls as the flip up part of the bed is smaller than the other ones.
One of my black 221's had to go to the shop to be serviced, the motor was running rather sluggish, so I took her in to have a nice cleaning and grease
This is for quilt i am making, but really don't know what pattern to do .
I have been asked to make a wall hanging from horse show ribbons. Has anyone made one? I could use some tips such as; should I use the flip and sew method to make fabric blocks? Should I use batting or not? Or should I place the ribbons face up on a fabric square and overlapping the edges and sew in place (might be less puckering this way). Do I have to watch the temp of the iron because it might pucker the ribbon and melt the lettering? Ribbons have not arrived, yet so just thinking in advance.
