A baby quilt
So anyway, I have been in a sewing rut (not a cutting rut, I seem to be doing fine with my cutting) I think something is upsetting my sewing machine, so I have been loath to test her. But finally the other day I did. I unfolded a WIP that has been sitting in a drawer and decided to make a quilt. One of my husband's LTs had a baby last week. Without thinking I whipped the WIP into a quilt. But as I was working on it I was wondering if the recipient would even want it? Maybe they had just prefer a gift certificate to Target? Do you ever get like that? Work hard on a handmade gift and then never hear boo from the person you gave it too? Or worse go to their house and find it in the dogs bed (who was telling me that story?). I think I can make a quilt in less time that it takes to get to and from Target...so for me it is better to just sew instead of shop. At any rate I am thrilled with how the quilt turned out.
here is is with even jazzier music than I have. Just click on the video option down at the bottom of the screen. That is what I sew with everyday. I love my 820. I have been wanting to do a blog just on my lovely machine, but I never get around to it.
