There were always bound to be some teething issues with “The Boss” and I.
Our first came this morning.
A second baby quilt, this is to go with the rabbit quilt. This is also a quilt which should have been finished last week.
A few issues to begin with. The top was the same size as the back.
I added some strips around the edges, and have attempted to squeeze it onto the backing.
Then after basting the entire quilt top, to make sure it was square, I made my first pass.
A small stipple in the outside patchwork borders, and the middle I am still deciding on. I had thought a mini stipple between the elephants.
I also had a play with an echoing meander, down one of the sides. Not sure yet.
I had just pulled the bobbin case out to fill with a new bobbin. In putting it back into the machine, the little lever on the front, which pinches the spring to hold the case in the race … sheared off!!
Thankfully I have a new one in the post, right away.
Till then I will think on the middle section.
Any ideas? Would love to hear what you would do?
In the meantime, I had a nap (working a night shift tonight so feel I am excused!) and hung some of my minis on the wall.
Making my space my own, slowly.
