Sometimes a quilt says keep it simple and when it does, I am glad to listen.
e l e. It doesn’t get much simpler than that. but, it fills those half square triangles so perfectly. From one side, and then from the other. Like a bunch of little tiaras.
I worked on that as much as I could, but once I had done it for a while and liked it, it got kind of boring and I was ready to be done.
Now, I have some large corner triangles to fill. I’m thinking something swirley.
And, I pieced some Christmas tree blocks.
I ended up taking every single one of them apart. They had names written on the underside of some of them, like maybe they were made by several people. The ones I got may have been rejects for bad seam allowances, which is why they had to be taken apart. I only need 13 for the quilt.
I’ve been working on my Singer 401 still. Still skipping stitches. Just every once in a while, but I cannot figure it out. The thread loop is getting caught on something in the bobbin assembly. I’ve adjusted the timing and taken apart the upper tension in case the thread was getting caught on something there and I’ve pulled out the bobbin case and made sure there are no burrs on it or the hook. Next, I’m going to need to sew and stop mid skip, when it grabs thread from the top and yanks it, and find where that loop is caught. It’s going to be an interesting problem to find and fix.
But, I will.
I came home from LD’s house the other day with another project. She has a small chest that she wants to use as a coffee table and it was covered with fabric and she’s bought some vinyl to put on the outside and I’m working out how to get that to look just right. I think her Father built it for her Mother. So, I’m doing my best to make sure I do no harm.
And, throw in a bit of my own chutzpah.
Be well and have a great Monday. Gonna try to vote.
