Worked on Sewing room today

Well, for awhile I've been wanting to rearrange my sewing cabinet.  So today I did it, I'm pleased, for some reason it seems that I have more room.  I can now see the TV and my Computer.  I think it's going to work out great.

I sewed afterwards on a little Owl baby quilt and then sewed my daughter's Primitive lap quilt together.  I think I'm going to add a narrow border is all.  I think I'm liking small borders are none at all....I guess a new phase I'm going thru...

Emperor's New Clothes

My friend Victoria inspired me to make this little Bunny piece.  That crazy background oh my gosh.
I will make a baby quilt using the pattern, probably won't patchwork it tho.  Was fun to make.  It's a little crooked here and there, but by golly it's finished....

Modern Bunny

Since I got Victoria's book "15 Minutes of Play"  I am trying to think out of the box.  Speaking of box, I have a whole box full of Kaffe scraps.  Was wanting to make a bunny quilt, this is what I came up with, I think it's going to be so cute, will most likely  have a flower with it....will be fun

This bunny is from a pattern "Kelly's Bunnies" by Jan Patek

Baby Lock machine working perfectly

I was having an issue with my Baby Lock Quilter's Choice Professional (I think they have renamed this machine since I purchased mine)....I had a "burr" in the bobbin thread.  That's the only way I know how to describe it.  When I would Free Motion Quilt at a slower speed, there would be a little loop come thru to the bottom side of the quilt then the machine would skip stitches.  Sooooo aggrivating.  I've worked with it and worked with it, but decided TODAY IS THE DAY I FIX THIS MACHINE.  ( I should have been outside and worked in my flower beds, weather beautiful) but no this machine was my priority.  It sews so fast, and wonderful when it's working properly.  Well, I adjusted the tension on the bobbin, adjusted the tension on the top tension, cleaned the machine, the prayed for it...........It has worked perfectly ever since.....I was able to get the whole inside part of the second Red Bird, Red Bird where art thou....the second black & white.  Probably won't make another one.  I'll use the black and white for backgrounds for some fun quilts.  I should be able to finish quilting the outside border tomorrow.  Hopefully this quilt will be finished this week....
