Took me all day yesterday to get this much done on the frame....
getting used to stopping where the throat plate of the machine ends is taking some planning.
I am working to get at least one row of blocks done and the side borders
Plus, while sewing, the machine came unplugged at the back - and I lost all my settings...so thats where I need to start today...sort out the settings and the tension.
Fortunatley I have discovered how to sit in front of the machine at the end of the frame to do this..plus I 'anchor' the machine with one of my side tensions so that I can actually test sew on some fabric...with my hands ...as I am used to...as its difficult to see under the frame with a small hand mirror and I don't have enough fabric on the quilt to test on
I am using Aurafil 50 in the top and Invisafil in the bobbin.
Needle I am currently using is an embroidery needle 75
I also have this heap for sewing the melons together for my DWR.
May need to get some of this done before I get lost at the frame again.
I do have some of the pieces worked out on the design board...and sew and watch through the window to see the birds fly in to get a drink from the bird bath.
