That was fast!! The repairman only had my sewing machine three and 1/2 days. (It sat 3 days while he was off on Holiday!!)
I am happy and sad. Happy to have it back. Sad. The stippling is STILL off. Maybe I am sewing too fast. I am going to adjust the tension, try again. And if I am not happy, back it goes.
I have to say… IT DID GOOD!! It sewed all the blocks together, the sashing and borders. My original plan was, if I had to quilt it on Itty Bitty, to sew straight lines down the center and on the sides. Just to connect the layers.
As you can see, I was conflicted. On the design layout. From the beginning. And right up to the final two days. The block with the “arrows” kind of threw me. Without them, I would have finished sooner. I couldn’t decide where to place them.
I wanted a matching set of blocks. The same colors for the two. Throughout. So I ended up with this design.
I like it. Hubby loves it. It measures 40″ by 40″. Perfect laptop quilt. And I am thinking it would make a nice table topper too. The back is black polka dot. You can see it in this photo.
Wish I could take better photos. Maybe I will take it outside and photograph it on the grass. It needs outside light.
Now… back to sewing. Need to catch up on some quilting. Finish the stuff I made on Itty Bitty. BTW, I left it connected. It helped me out in a pinch. So its reward will be staying on the table a while longer.
Instructions for the blocks can be found here.
