    Since the kids are gone and I have my sewing room back, I decided I was going to finish off 2 quilts I need to make for a couple little girls.
    I was doing one and for the life of me, I couldn't get the corners or ANYTHING to match up right, so I tossed it to the side and got another idea. This is what I'm now doing for a quilt for them.

    That's what takes so long. Making sure I STAY on the line. I did have to rip it out a couple times to get it right.

    I have TONS of feet that go with my machine. Most of them are still in the packages they came in, sealed and waiting for me to try them out.
    I have a foot (has the letter F on it). The slit where the thread goes is just in the right place for me to line up the edge of the fabric. It was the first foot I grabbed and seemed to work out. I tried others, but they weren't working for me. Might try another since the one I'm using is clear and it gets hard to see at times. I need new glasses, had gotten them made 3 times and all 3 times they were wrong. Now I have to wait for my eye doc to come back from vacation to get new script to go get new glasses at another place. WILL NOT step foot into where I HAD gone.

    Oh I love them. Now is that what you call applique? What do you use to put on fabric? Where can I find the cute Sunbonnet Sue's? Sorry for all the questions. Its something I've been wanting to try

    I used the light weight heat and bond. I wasn't sure it was still good since I had it shoved in a bin for about 10 years, but it's working fine!

    Here's the website I used.
    http://www.sunbonnetsue.com/patterns.html

    Also, if you do a search here, there is a BOM that was done not too long ago with Sunbonnet Sue and there are a ton of links on that too.

    My machine has a TON of stitches and also appliques. The stitch I used for the leaves are just a decorator stitch I decided to try and it came out nice. I had gone to Ben Franklins today to get some fabric for the Round Robin and picked up a few cute buttons to embellish with.

    I love Sunbonnet Sue!! Please post a picture of the whole quilt when you finish-I love the detail you added with the flower-too cute!!!! (My grandmother made a Sunbonnet Sue quilt for me when I was a little girl. Unfortunately it was stolen in 1986 when we made a move overseas to Germany. :()

    Bev, I used cardboard for my template. Just cut an old box I had gotten from a fabric shipment. Just be careful cutting the cardboard. DO NOT ask me why I am saying this,,,,just take my precaution.
    The templates I have DO have some rough edges, but when I am cutting them, that's when I "smooth" the edges.

    I'm thinking of doing a sort of attic window with each block. Maybe embroider something different in each block. I dunno.

    I know all about things being stolen from moves. One reason why I have learned to get a post office box OR a mailbox at a Mailboxes Or More, or at a UPS place. That way, I can ship some things to that. Only took me 10 years to figure that one out.

    Terri - You HAVE been a buzy little bee now haven't you, I love your sunbonnet Sues, I think it is such a lovely block to do, and I like how you are embellishing it too, the stem stitch is perfect for that button!! Do you have a Janome??? only the open toe foot is 'F' on mine machine too, just wondered if we have the same machine?? :D

    No, I have a Kenmore Ergo3. But it's supposedly made by Janome (?)
    I just love it. Just wish the embroidery field was larger than 4 inches, but that's ok, I like it just fine.
    It has TONS of stitches (decorator) where I don't have to put the hoop on to do them.
    And...the best thing??? It has a needle threader!!! :) :) :)

    The Sunbonnet Kitty is cute!
    Now, I wish I could find the pattern to it. I could make one myself, but I cannot draw a straight line with a ruler! So, I'd screw it all up.
