I got my baby back!!! (Friday Foto Fun #6)

Happy Friday indeed!  I got to pick up my baby from the shop yesterday!! I’m so excited to be able to sew with it again!  So the technician told me that he took the bottom portion apart and didn’t find the needle pieces.  Then he put it back together, retimed the machine and it worked.  Now how do I learn to fix that myself when...

Sew Pro: A Year Later

Last year about this time, hundreds of quilters descended upon Chicago for the Sew Pro Convention.  The convention was unique because it was about being a professional in the sewing industry.  You can read my initial recap here. So what have I done with all I learned in the past year? I have a logo and a brand: Powered by Quilting I’m officially registered as...

Here’s how you make the 16″ finished block with the colors referencing the block above: Cutting instructions: Dark Blue: Cut 1 –...
