The Sewing Machine Hums

It has been yet another weekend of sewing!  I had a couple of hiccups, but I was able to finally hear my machine hum.  I was supposed to meet up with the Philly Modern Quilt Guild for an all day sewing day on Saturday.  I was completely packed with intentions of completing a couple of quilts and getting a start on a new one.  As the day turned out, I hung out my little man while my husband spent the day recovering from some virus.  Luckily, during Jimmy’s naps, I was able to put in some sewing time.  I first turned on my machine and it ate my quilt!  I cleaned and oiled it and still had issues.  I was on a mission to quilt and pulled out the screwdriver to check out the innards.  After more cleaning and lots of determination, I was very proud to hear my sewing machine hum without having to take it in for service!  It continued to hum all afternoon, as  I completed the free motion quilting and binding for my second Floating Triangles Quilt, the binding for Jimmy’s car, and the cutting of a new Chopsticks quilt.  I will be sharing my finishes this week, but here is a glimpse of what I worked on this weekend.

This week I used up a yard of black fabric for the remaining background squared in the Floating Triangles quilt, as well as 3.5 yards of fabric for the Chopsticks Quilt.  With the addition of 4 yards this week, my fabric usage this year is up to 11.5 yards of fabric with still no new 2013 purchases.  Linking up with Judy of Patchwork Times.

  1. We missed you on Saturday, but glad to hear you got some sewing time in and you were able to get your machine working! Love that Floating Triangles quilt – and I’m sure Jimmy will love playing on his car mat. Hope everyone is better at your house!
