I keep thinking about all the things I said I'd post then I either don't have a picture or have something else to post. So, today I will catch up a couple things.
my new Pfaff Performance 5.0 has come home. It is such fun. The learning curve was almost 0 since my previous Pfaff had similar features. There are some new things I'm enjoying...like the automatic thread snips. My old machine had it but I never used it. Why? I don't know. It also has the knee lift...although I haven't done anything that would need it. I sometimes use it on my travel machine so I already know I like it.
Next...a quick quilt for Buttercup's birthday.
I guess I don't have a close up. It just uses the same sailboat fabric as The Scholar's birthday quilt. It is meant to be used. Tossed around, taken to college or camp and thrown in the washing machine. It isn't anything fancy.
The back uses 2 strips that started out on the front. When I laid them all out it was much too wide.
I put them on the back between strips of manatee fabric.
Love the manatee fabric. It has so much depth. It made a nice backing because I didn't have to cut it up into small pieces.
I recently went to an antique mall and bought an old ladder to display quilts. I just pulled out quilts that were on hand to try it out. It will be fun to change out the quilts by season or theme.
I still have a class project I haven't unpacked and photograph. So many projects, so little time.
