Now...truthfully, sewing night itself isn't always productive...this past week, I just did some cutting. I got a throw quilt trimmed and binding strips cut, and a couple of t-shirts for my girls cut out. But there's nothing like a group of friends getting together to recharge your creative batteries.
I came home and was ready to sew. I got my quilt bound yesterday, and one t-shirt made...but I had to sew it on my friend's machine because mine was acting up. It's not feeding properly, cotton or knit, but knit is obviously a bigger problem. I really need a new machine. I've just really got to decide and then hope for a sale. I've got my eye on a Bernina, but I am trying to decide which one...530 for a larger throat space? 350 for patchwork? 380 for the additional stitches? I can't decide. I'm really excited for the eventual purchase, however...
So, fabric! Yay for fabric. This week's bundle came about as I was brainstorming an alternate color story for a quilt I've been working on. I tried out Adobe Illustrator to do the design, but I really have no clue what I'm doing, so it was a complete joke. :-) In any case, I really liked the idea of purple with aqua, and thought the yellow was a nice touch, too. And then realized how similar it is to a bundle I pulled a while back...oh well. It's still a nice bundle. :-)
Top to bottom: (I'm missing the selvage on my stripe), I think the line is called Enjoy the Ride by Tina Higgins, (my fat quarter doesn't have the selvage, but it's by V and Co.), Wallflowers by Allison Harris, Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry, and Mormor by Lotta Jansdotter. Man, I'm missing a lot of designer information this go around!
