Another Saturday is near the end, and did I get anything finished? No. My new sewing machine was doing strange things and I rushed it to the hospital. Well, by the time I drove the 30 miles, I decided I should try a few things first. I walked around that huge quilt store and was not inspired by anything. I went to another quilt store north of Seattle called The Quilting Loft and did buy another $40 worth of fabric.
I changed the thread in my machine and now it is working just fine. Could my Bernina be that sensitive? My Viking never complained about thread. I was using some Italian thread called Aurifil. It was $10!! I stopped at JoAnn Fabrics and bought some Gutermann's. My machine apparently prefers German thread. I must say that the automatic threader, the automatic cutter, and everything seems to work better with Gutermann's thread.
Here is some of the fabric I picked up at the Quilting Loft. I love the polka dots of course. I was thinking maybe a coin quilt. I have never made one of those. I did finish the top of a pinwheel quilt, but i am not that crazy about it. Maybe I will take a picture of it tomorrow with something other than my iPhone.
