Back to where I started


Today I worked on another rag quilt.  I know its been quite some time since I have done one of these.  Its not for lack of materials or plans to do them.  Its just that I like to do the pieced quilts more then these simple rag quilts.   As I have mentioned my machine is on the blink.  If I try to do any thing too hard, too fast, or too much and it freaks out.  My wife assures me that my new machine is on the way and will be here some time this week (by UPS guess it should be Thursday), not that I ever trust those tracking sites.

Until the new machine shows up and I get though the learning curve. I am doing what my machine does OK.  And that is sew straight lines and not too long and not too fast (I am a speed demon) and my new machine is supposed to be fast and bigger by far then my old machine.  Any way I am proud to report that I have finished my 13 rows that my wife tasked me with sewing on this quilt for her brother.  (I did not sew the 13 rows togethe, just the single rows across do you think that's what my wife asked?  Maybe not, but I was too distracted with Julia tonight to sew any more.)

I can't wait to see this finished, I wanted to do a rag quilt with John Deere fabric, but I was kinda iffy about it, I have never made one, and I'm not sure if I have enough fabric to do a whole quilt. I'm glad your doing one, I hope you take pictures.

Yes, cute babies are a distraction. =) Do you know what machine you are getting, or is it a secret?
