This is what is currently on my design wall. I purchased a package of 14 fat quarters at the PA quilt show I went to a couple of weeks ago and intend on making a framed 4 patch quilt out of them. I am trying to decide if the 4 patch should be 4 different fabrics like the block on the right or 2 fabrics like the one on the left.
What do you think?
I know compared to people with major heath problems, people out of work etc. this is very minor but I am totally upset and depressed right now. Yesterday I quilted a couple of sections of this quilt which is a Christmas quilt for upcoming craft shows. I took a break for lunch and when I went back all of a sudden my longarm won't sew right. It is skipping stitches like crazy.
I did all the easy things like rethreading, changing the needle, checking the bobbin and bobbin case and my hubby did everything on the Nolting check list including checking timing etc. Nothing we did will make it stitch correctly so I am out of business till it somehow gets fixed.
I guess that is where the big upset is. This machine is not only my business, but my hobby and how I do charity work. I am in the midst of getting ready for craft shows and expect my busy Christmas quilting season to start in about 3 weeks. Timing could not be worse.
Ok, enough venting for now anyway. Think I need another cup of coffee to try and get rid of my headache and then will head to the sewing room. I can't do any quilting or customer quilts but I can find something to piece.
