Mass Production!

Piles I have all the cutting done for my red, white and black quilt.  I also have all the black and cream/white half-square triangles sewn and most of them trimmed up (I like to make my HSTs about a half-inch larger than needed, then trim down to size for perfect points!).

Last night my machine started making awful noises and the needle started hitting the bobbin cage when it went down, so I will have to take it into the shop after work today.  I hope they can get it back to me quickly - with a 3-day weekend ahead, I was hoping to get a lot of sewing done.  It couldn't have happened at a worse time.  No, I take that back - it HAS happened to me at a worse time!  Once when I was at a quilt retreat, it broke down on the very first day!  Thankfully my SIL let me use her machine while she was basting quilt tops together, otherwise I would have been very bored.

Fingers crossed that it's nothing too expensive to fix and that I get my machine back quickly!  Otherwise, I see a lot of cutting in my plans for the 3-day weekend!


  1. Yowza! That's a lot of cutting. I hope your machine can get fixed quickly. Tell them you have to have it back this weekend or you will be so bored! lol

  2. Sorry about your machine. Machine woes are the pits! Hope you get it back soon.
