You know how sometimes you just have to walk away? I had that with my sewing machine Saturday. Today I tried it again and found that it still wasn't going to work. Took me about 30 minutes to think about ripping the thread from the top and rethreading the machine. I fired it up and Voila! Success. Don't know why I didn't think of that sooner. But, I immediately got my blocks out and started sewing. The pattern is coming together nicely. I was going to make it scrappy but I like the looks of the fabric so it will be back to my lqs tomorrow for more. Now all I have to do is figure out how much fabric I need and how many blocks it will take to make this a king sized quilt. Sounds like too much math for me.
