Blake's Quilt

Hi friends!
I started putting blocks together yesterday and I think I am going to work on it today.
I saw that I needed more so I went through all the shirts and cut every thing I could find off.
Need to fill up all the holes!
See how big the bottom of this foot is?
I have been using one with a small plastic round bottom.
See!
It was full of places where the needle had hit it.
I tried  it out and I think this will be much better. Still have a bunch of threads to remove from where it was messing up on Hagen's quilt.
The quilters life is full of seam ripping!
 I got lots of feet when I bought  my feather weight so last night I went looking for a 1/4 inch foot , nope don't have one!
Guess I will have to order me one!
There is always something we need, isn't there.
Hugs
Babs

blocks coming along, lucky to have so many feet for featherweight, mine only came with one but bought the 1/4" one and then found my janome feet fit on it so have plenty now, time I got the featherweight out and gave it a run

that quilt is really coming along so well--as for 1/4" quilting feet--my needle ends up scraping the edges of them all--I have truly given up--my seam is just what it is. A thread bigger or smaller is not going to scare me anymore...if my block is 5 and 16/17ths--so what--I got myself so frustrated a year ago and then I decided as long as all the seams were the same, what's the big deal?? So far, it's working fine...hugs for a great weekend of quilting ahead..Julierose
