Yesterday morning I had a moment of
I cleaned and oiled my sewing machine
and then prepared to quilt the
Solid Baby Quilt I had been working on this week.
My machine wouldn't work!
The needle wouldn't drop!
What was I going to do?
I wanted to deliver this baby quilt on Thursday
and now it wouldn't be finished.
I walked away for a while since it was too early to
take it to the repair shop.
Well....as I was packing the machine up
to take to the repair shop,
I saw that the bobbin casing had dropped out of place.
Could this be the problem???
The quilting commenced and
yesterday I quilted this adorable little quilt.
This is such a bright and happy baby quilt!
It is quilted it with simple grid stitching
in a medium gray thread.
I am a polka dot nut!
This fabric has been in my stash,
waiting for the perfect quilt
and here it is!
If I don't put a label on this quilt,
it could be reversible.
Maybe I'll just write the label info in the circles?
Now for my second panic moment of the day!
I had thought I would stitch diagonal lines through the quilt,
especially in the 6" plain squares,
so I marked one block with the Frixion pen.
I decided to continue with the grid stitching
and not use the diagonal lines.
After quilting, I ironed the Frixion line
It's like the pen bleached the fabric!
The photo makes it stand out more than it actually does,
but there is still a faint line there.
I learned a valuable lesson here and will not use
these pens on solid fabric again.
