Helpers ... They Are Not!
I'm not taking my Bernina on vacation
[a big sigh sound here]
but I do have two quilt tops that are in-need
of binding. This is a perfect vacation project since
this last [time consuming] step is done by hand.
I learned about Spray Bond at the Outreach Bee.
It's a miracle product so no pinning is required
when it's time to quilt the quilt.
Quilt made in my last class many months ago.
Julep & Derby had enough playing on my quilt layout
area so I could finally finish using the bonding spray.
[Due to the size the floor space was needed.]
This baby quilt I made without a pattern.
I plan to try out the Bernina walking foot
and quilt the top today.
Hopefully, this will be fun and not stressful!
Woof-Woof ... the back of the quilt.
This is a lot of fabric to push through the
sewing machine ... wish me luck!
Since this was a class practice quilt
I'll let the westies have it to sleep on.
I've hesitated for months spending the $'s to purchase
this expensive foot for my Bernina.
? W-H-Y ?
Because that little box cost $175.00.
When I worked on quilting the class practice top [above]
I realized I really need to have this foot because
without it the fabric bunches up in spots and creates
bumps. When you spend hours and hours piecing
together a quilt top you want the finished product
to look good - even if it's just a practice piece.
While I was in the fabric shop ... I noticed
bolts of new fabrics sitting behind the counter.
I'm not sure what I'll be doing with this panel.
First I though of a little lap quilt with a simple
accent border [using the two fabrics to the left]
then the sale clerks suggested I could make
This was also purchased with the fabrics above.
I'll keep it in my stash until I decide what to
do with it. The shell theme really doesn't fit
our home but I fell in love with the rich
colors and beautiful shells.
The picture [above] and [below] are fabrics
I picked up from JoAnn's red tag area.
The Columbus Day sale was 50% off the already
50% price - what a bargain.
Second dress I made from the Ballet Slipper
fabric. This one is being mailed to Jocelyn who is
taking ballet classes.
HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT DAY.
