I’m so behind in blogging! I’m just having too much fun sewing. I am diligently working on my Spring Basket Quilt. I’ve finished ten blocks of each of the three pink blocks and the one purple block I already posted about. I’ve also got all ten of today’s block finished. This block is a muted purple batik print. I sure hope that all the prints will complement each other in the quilt.
Sewing the blocks on my new Janome is wonderful! I can’t believe the difference sewing on a good machine makes. It is so smooth and runs so quietly. The bells and whistles are nice too. I am getting more proficient in piecing these blocks. The 1/4″ foot with guide is so nice. I don’t know how I did without it before. I also like the fact that I can change the plate from the standard oval hole to a small round hole. If you are asking why I would want to switch the plate, the smaller hole keeps the tiny ends of my triangles from getting pinched in. If you are looking for a new machine yourself, I highly recommend this one. I love the 11″ arm – so much room! If you have any questions about it, please ask. Happy Sewing.
