Friday Thoughts


I am getting re-aquainted with my walking foot.
We've been estranged for a while now.
:/
The speed limit had kept me away....
but I've been plugging along
at a reasonable speed.
I haven't been given a ticket yet!!!!
:)

Half square Triangles for this quilt were easy.
A pencil line.....

Two seams....

A nice long CUT......

Viola!!!

Quilting with a walking foot, for me, calls for a bigger stitch.

It's a big number....
but I think these stitches will do.
It also goes a little faster....
and I LOVE that part.
;)

My stash gave me these two fabrics for the border.
5" wide.
I'm now OUT of the polka dot on the right.
I had only a sliver left that was even too tiny for a scrap quilt!


A scrappy back.

IT DID take a while to FIND the perfect colors...
but while I was digging, I realized AGAIN....
I DO NOT NEED ANY MORE FABRIC!!!


Red Gingham binding to the rescue again!!!
Woo Hoo!!
This quilt is in the
HOME STRETCH!

  2. Laughed at the 'slow down' note - I have my case for my foot with the same note on it! The bigger stitch looks so much better and with a little bit heavier top thread it works beautifully. Love the gingham binding with those fabric lines.

  8. Love the quilt. I usually use a larger stitch also when I use my walking foot but only about a 3.

  9. I use my walking foot to attached my binding strips to the quilt. Have you ever used it for that?
