I don't know about you but I'm highly influenced by those blogs I read. If that is not enough there is Lorna with her FB feed showing off all kinds of stuff. That is how I ended up at Paula's page - The Sassy Quilter.
Have you heard she's hosting Triangle Quilt Along? There is still time to join in, just saying.
As I looked around here blog I found an article on How to Clean a Sewing Machine. Those pictures really made me curious and I finally unscrewed my machine and ......
it looked very similar. Yikes!
This is the first time I actually went in. I was afraid I won't be able to put it back together but it's not that difficult. Once I got it all together I needed to try if it works. What am I going to sew? Few scraps will do it. I pulled out scraps from BH quilt. If you ever made Broken Herringbone you probably have those triangles somewhere as well. I made few squares out of it. I was not worrying about matching the seams just done it in A style and couldn't stop.
You know what A style is? ANYHOW, lol. Some call it improv style but I'm more A kind of girl, he he.
It looks more blue than it actually is. Those colors are more dark green with blue undertone. I ended up with two squares big enough to make cushion cover. Should I do some straight line quilting or try out some FMQ with an A style? We'll see.
Then there is February goal I would like to meet. So I pieced the diamonds for Lonely Star.
I'm currently at decision making on the background fabric. Should I go with dark or stick with white?
I started those two projects and cleaned my machine just because I wasn't feeling like quilting my color wheel quilt. Do you also start new things just because you don't feel like finishing the "old" ones? I know you do! :-)
I'll be linking up with Let's Bee Social! and WiP Wednesday.
