I think my sewing machine may be cross at me. Sulking from being in a packing box too long. I can't get the auto threader thingy to work at all. But more importantly, my darning foot has just died. How can it?? I thought feet were supposed to last forever? It sort of pulls the foot foward which causes the needle to go straight down onto the foot and break. Not good. But funnily enough if I leave the feed dogs up, it will work, sort of. Gives a rough FMQ line. Which is perfect for this quilt for the Flickr DQS#8 as that is the look I was after to go around the chickens in.
I added the border and will bind this one in a black and white dot. I want to FMQ the yellow, I need smooth lines for that bit so I am currently waiting for a new darning foot via ebay.
I still can't shake the urge to make two of these quilts when I do a swap. This is the second one. One for my wall, one for my partners!
