Happy Labor Day!
I hope you are enjoying some relaxation whether that is not doing anything or doing something that you enjoy such as sewing.
Saturday I added 3 double sided fabric leaves to my coiled fabric bowl. I think they improve it.
I also sandwiched 2 quilts (the blue “Star Gazing” and the yellow, blue and green Sampler UFO) and have them ready to start quilting; however, I am having machine problems. I normally use my Bernina to stitch-in-the-ditch to stabilize before I do free-motion quilting. I cannot use my Bernina right now and have an appointment for service Wednesday. The last time I used my sit down long arm machine I had tension problems. I oiled and cleaned some, put in a new needle and tried it out. I am hoping the problem is solved.
Sunday afternoon I tried out some FM motifs trying to decide how I want to quilt the blue “Star Gazing”. I have quilted this type of feather before and may use it in the central light diamond areas. I was not ready to start quilting so I did some planning and cutting for a sampler class I am offering at church.
update * I am trying to decide which thread to use for the quilting and whether I want the quilting to show up on the light or dark areas.
Enjoy your day and may all your Labor be enjoyable.
