Work in Progress Wednesday

It’s been a while since I posted about my quilting projects. I’ve kind of abandoned my sewing in the last few weeks because Matt and I tackled a project (which I will share later!) and I started Spring Cleaning in this house. I meant to get the cleaning done prior to Easter, but that’s not happening if I want it done right. And I do.

Anyway, I asked a friend’s mother to help me plan a baby quilt and while there, she asked me if I had a quarter inch foot for my sewing machine. Not only did I not have said foot, I did not have an understanding as to why I would need it. Just so you know… I do now. It took me days to piece together the first 15 blocks because I just couldn’t get the seaming right, but once I got my new foot, I whipped through 37 blocks in an afternoon! Amazing what such a seemingly small tool can do!

So here I am… working on putting together the last of the 82 squares. I’d like to finish it soon so I can start laying out the quilt and putting it together. Babies don’t always care how much sewing you have to get done in anticipation of their arrival!

I’m linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced today!  What are you working on this week?

  1. Love my 1/4 inch foot! I didn’t have one for the first 1.5 year of quilting and man did I not even know what I was missing! My other favorite feet are the even-feed/walking foot and my free motion/darning foot.
