I always say I am not a quilter. Making two quilts since December probably qualifies me as a quilter. They are simple quilts, so I can still call myself a novice quilter. This one went together super fast, which is good because it is for a baby that is due any minute. I have known about this baby for months, but waited until the last minute to get started. Nothing like a deadline to get me motivated. For the last quilt, I used a machine at school with a walking foot.
Since I procrastinated on this one, and it was Spring Break this week, and the baby is due any minute, I ordered a walking foot for my machine. I took a gambled by ordering an off brand walking foot. For half the price, I felt it was worth the risk. At first, it did not seem to work very well. Without instructions, installation was trial and error. There were a few errors. Once installed correctly, it worked beautifully. Now I want to quilt everything!
The family was not so thrilled when the quilt took over the kitchen table. To quilt it, I needed space…. lots of space. I also discovered that the kitchen table gets wonderful sunlight… perfect for sewing. If my machine were not so heavy, I would sew down there more often. Hmmm…. perhaps this is the perfect excuse to get that little Hello Kitty sewing machine…..
