Here are some of the details (and my random thoughts) about this project.
Fabrics were purchased at Classic Quilt Shop on March 18. I needed 1/4 yard pieces, but I bought 1/3 yard instead so I could add a little to the stash (now that I'm getting it organized). I also bought a variegated yellow spool of Mettler thread and a pattern by Eleanor Burns.
Mettler thread: poly sheen multi #9925
pattern: Zig A Zag Quilt
To get her ready, I changed the needle to a new Schmetz Universal 80/12. I tested the 1/4 inch seam. It was perfect on the first try so I marked it with a piece of painter's tape.
2 sets of strips (that's 8 seams) is too much for this old girl. The foot pedal was getting pretty hot. That got me thinking about a name...I've decided on Sandy. She's a very light tan with some little dings on her throat and with the hot foot pedal, she just got me thinking about the beach. Of course, I'm always thinking about the beach...but Sandy she is.
Well, I'm off to do some pressing. I'll see you in a bit!
