The little house is just about finished. I call it a house because it is really so much more than a shed. Peter did such a great job, it is so solid and sturdy, I feel very safe when I am inside. And it’s beautiful!I got going on the little quilt tonight and it’s almost finished too. I did some machine quilting “stitch in the ditch”. I’ve never done that before and one thing I found out is that when you quilt in the ditch you can really see whether or not the seams match up. Mine don’t. It’s so fun though! The part I really like is leaving the needle in when you lift the foot to turn the work. I LOVE to do that. Really how cool is that?
Here it is all pinned up
and here it is getting stitched
I’ve had this roll of Borders Made Easy for about 6 years and I have never used it. I tried it tonight and I think I like it. The sewing went about as easy as it ever did for me. Having that line to follow was great even though I went off a few times.
Peeling it off was kind of a drag but I eventually got it all off. I quilted black thread on the black border so I am showing the back so the stitching shows. Not bad!
