Mr. QuiltAcademy and I have rented a cabin in the woods, and are spending time away from “having to…” I brought a few “want to…” things, and once we were settled in, I began putting on the binding on this quilt. It is the Strippy Surprise Mystery Quilt by Jere’ Funk! The rain made it a “stay inside” kind of day.
After sewing halfway around, I noticed my Featherweight was skipping stitches. Out came the manual. It was threaded correctly, bobbin in right, hmmm. I pulled the needle off and sure enough, it was flat side right. I flipped it, and that was all it took.
Looking back, by the end of the day, I had taken two naps, and in between naps, I had finished hand sewing 3/4 way around. My stitches are small, and the stripes on the back are a perfect comparison to their size.
Today is sunny and windy. We will spend a little time on the porch watching the squirrels, and then I will bind the rest.
