I have black thread in the machine so I'll do the ditch work on the two borders after I use a template to check that the lines are straight. I did that quickly and put a few pins in just to keep it straight for basting.
I finally got some foam pieces to use for rolling up in the take-up bar to put pressure on the machine bed and I need to get a towel and make a rice bag. If you've ever seen a Sharon Schamber video about the foam and rice bags, you know that they are used to get more control of the machine. That is one of the things that I have the worse time with. The first time I used the machine I wasn't prepared for it to move so easily, like ice on a hotplate. One tiny little movement on the handles can translate to a big mistake on the quilt.
Maybe I'll eat something for brunch before I start.... :-D
