THIMBLEBERRIES SEW DAY!!!

If you joined us today, we would love to see what you did. I know over at Granny quilts, she just picked out and cut her material for a tote....how fun is that?

I didn't think I was going to have time today but we had a tropical storm and so I was homebound. So here is what I did.

It is called Checkerboard Cherries out of the Thimbleberries book that Gene sent me. Yes, I know, that was not what I showed I was going to do...can't a woman change her mind?

Well here is theirs....



Here is mine....


So...as I am doing the binding, I am having the dickens of a time with Mr. Pfaff..it just won't run....so I checked the needle, checked the feed dogs....and it still gave me fits, I literally had to force the material through, so my seam do not look that great....well.....well.....here is the rest of the story.....my feed dogs were down....I checked.....maybe I should wear my glasses while I sew....am I going to take it out and do over.....no way Hosae.....

Hope all of you that joined us will check in and let us see what you have done. Crazy bout Quilts, she did a few things....she really got into the swing of things today!!

Hope you can join us next month!!

  8. I love your little quilt....sorry about the feed dog mix-up. *sigh* It happens to all of us at one time or another, though.

  9. Those dogs can be troublesome.
    About the same trouble as leaving your machine in reverse and trying to sew forward. Not an especially easy task.
