blog to see the completed quilts.Unfortunately I also had a small metal part break from my 30 year old sewing machine and I'm not sure I can get it repaired. The bobbin seems to be sitting crookedly and the timing is off but I think that this may be the end of the road for my old work horse. It's a shame because I know this machine so well that I love using it. I can trouble shoot any problems and between DH and myself we've been able to service it for many years.
Luckily I had a newer sewing machine which I can use but I was reluctant to use it on the QAYG blocks as they can require some heavy duty sewing if the batting is thick in places. I do trim the batting back from the seams but it's still harder on the machine than normal stitching. I decided that it was time to try the new machine and it handled it well so far.
Today I finished off binding the 3 quilt tops I'd quilted yesterday as well as making yoghurt, a chocolate slice (to use up biscuits that no one wanted to eat) as well as an egg and bacon pie and a lemon cheesecake. It must have been my day for cooking while the day was cold and overcast. I'm back on night shifts tomorrow for a few days so I'm hoping to make a baby quilt for a gift before I return to bed again.
I hope you all had time for some fun projects this weekend.
Hugs, Jan Mac
