Practicing my machine quilting.............I changed my needle, adjusted my tension just a tad and put in regular quilting thread to practice with and I've had much better results using the BSR (bernina stitch regulator). Getting my hands and the speed moving at just the right cadence is better too....LOL....I feel as if it's like that old trick of trying to pat your head and rub your stomach at the same time!
Practicing on my new addiction......why.....it's Hexies of course!!............TIP: my joint at the top of my left index finger and my thumb began to ache while sewing my hexies....straining to keep the two pieces aligned and together.....so...I had an idea to use those same little hair clippees I use to hold down my quilt binding while I sew it on. Perfect!! Oh wow....now my hand can relax and the pressure on the joints is much better while I'm sewing them together.
I want to thank the bloggers in my previous post for playing along and sharing their quilt 'backs' with us. I wish there had been more participants.....I have seen a lot of lovely quilt backs out there!! So, if you have one you want to share....you still can....just go and add your link!!
