In case you were operating under the illusion that all my sewing projects come out just as planned….

There I was, minding my own business, quilting some fun “googley eyes*” onto my quilt, when the screw came out of my bobbin case. Tension issues ensued. I didn’t find out until sometime later.

I will be unquilting some ~10 million stitches this evening. And looking for a screw smaller than a grain of rice. And making a huge sign that says CHECK THE BOBBIN SCREW EVERYTIME YOU CHANGE THE BOBBIN to hang right in front of my face on the wall. In case you’re curious, this is not the first time the screw has fallen out. Apparently it vibrates itself just enough to wiggle free.

No, I am not amused. Yes, I am annoyed. Wish me luck.

*Yes, I’m really calling that quilting design “googley eyes”. It’s perfect.

Ooh La La

Making something with this today.

And this.

One guess what it is.


It’s not for a baby.

Snow in Springtime: Machine Quilting Sue’s Christmas Table Runners

I know, I know, it’s spring, and this is a Christmas table runner that I machine quilted back before Christmas.

But hey, the weather thinks it should snow today, even though it was 70 degrees yesterday, so I’m just following Mother Nature’s lead.

Plus, I’m trying to catch up and show you all the quilts I have machine quilted that I have pictures of. (Next up a stunning black, white and red quilt made by my awesome friend, Kathy).

Sue made 3 of these fun table runners for her daughters for Christmas, and lucky me, I got to do some quick machine quilting on them!

Pattern is my free All Boxed Up table runner pattern.
