...and on Tuesday, the new walking foot arrived from sewingparts - and I can't wait to try it out!
It included as a freebie a stick with a flat bit on which pokes into the back of the foot and acts as a marker on the quilt. It's called a 'quilter's guide', and I think that Bilbo warned me against this type of gadget some time ago, as being a right ol' waste of time. Advice welcome - as ever - on this.
So I've had the foot for the best part of the week, but - frustratingly - through one commitment or another, I've had no time to start using it, and won't until the weekend.
However, it is the Christmas Quiltalong which is this Saturday - hurrah! I've had a sneak preview of this month's star block's on Cathi's site - they look very complicated!
But I'm sure that QuiltSue - despite now being one of the published elite, having received advance copies of her book - will still be on hand to help! Well done, Sue - I'd be having to have a lie down in a dark room with the excitement of it all!
Summer, The Quilt - Julie of the The Crafty Quilter created this fun and smart quilt as a qal with tips and advice, and I joined in. I couldn't pass up this design; I love ...
