I am not at home but I thought I would share what is on my design wall back home. I confess that I spent a few hours working exclusively on my Downton 4 patch instead of just working it as leaders/enders. I had some time before I left but didn’t want to start working on the quilt on the frame and I didn’t want to start a new project, so I sewed a few more blocks. Now I am up to 16 of 30. And I am liking it more with every block.
Have you ever started seeing something on Instagram or on blogs and started thinking you needed whatever it was you saw? A great FQ bundle perhaps or some new gadget. Well, I am not immune. For quite some time, I’ve noticed that many serious quilters love their Juki TL 2010Q machines. They are large straight stitch machines that stitch very fast. I started pricing them out and reading reviews here and there. I usually use one of my Featherweights for piecing.
The other day, I decided to pull out one of my vintage Singer 301s. I hadn’t used one for piecing in a long time.
Guess what? This machine is fast and smooth! More so than I had remembered!
I really don’t need another machine. I already have everything I could want and more.
Problem solved. Envy gone.
