So nervous!

The quilt is loaded, basted at the top and sides.... and I'm procrastinating!

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


  1. It gets easier! Can't wait to see the finished quilt! :)

  2. I thought I was the only one who got nervous which results in me putting it off. :) All of your work is great!
