Feeling the need to complete something quickly, combined with the fact there was white thread on the machine, I worked on this.
The 9-patch blocks were from a shop-hop door prize.
I added a green border around the outside of the finished blocks and added a 6" border of one of the prints that I had purchased for the back.
It will finish at about 45x60. Baby quilt for the stash.
I saw a trick on PBS to use the walking foot when you work on knits to avoid accidental stretching.
I had great intentions of wearing it to work today. But my machines were not going to cooperate. The serger's attitude improved after being re-threaded a couple times and a new needle.
My new Singer has this bad habit of getting thread caught around a part inside. Which gives me few clues until the whole thing starts clinking and acting like it's totally dead. Screwdriver, seam ripper, tweezers, and a fair bit of cussing then it's good as new.
