I'm sewing!

Bitsy's back baby, she's back! I cleaned her and fired her up, and she's good to go! Actually sewing seems much smoother now, I guess they did some good fixing and tweaking at the shop! I sewed all the rows together...

I cut them apart and started sewing up these simple blocks...

You know what I did this time? I really paid attention to a scant 1/4" seam. Usually I sew right up to the 1/4" guide on my sewing foot. Then I wonder why my blocks are always a tad short. Well sewing just a bit smaller than 1/4" really helps. I'm sure everyone else already does this, and I'm just a little slow on the uptake, but I finally got it! Light bulb moment! LOL

OK, kids will be home soon...but I just wanted to tell you that Bitsy is home and well!

  1. I know you are soo glad Bitsy is back! I am lost without my sewing machine. You would think I only have one to sew on :) I piece my quilt tops on one machine and do other sewing with another machine. I am making pillows right now!

  2. Okay, I have no idea what a SCANT 1/4 inch IS so I always butt up against my 1/4 inch foot. I'll have to practice this scant 1/4 inch seam business. Your block looks great!

  3. I love your blog. I don't think I've been here before. Don't know how I missed it. I signed up to follow, so I'll be back. Have a great Memorial Day, Jen.
