It is time to start working on a couple projects for Christmas, I’m thinking I could use some new holiday pillows. I looked through my stash for some fabrics that would be good for a Christmas project and I found this charm pack by BasicGrey called 25th and Pine. I’m not sure if I bought it last year…..or the year before. I’m not even going to tell you how many charm packs I have, they are such a neat way to see the whole line of fabrics in a collection. Do you
hoard have charms packs in your stash?
I spread out the neat Christmas fabrics and then cut them into smaller pieces……when someone comes over that doesn’t quilt they can’t understand why I cut fabric into smaller pieces and then……sew them back together. If you are a quilter……you understand!
Do you follow Darlene at Quilt Shop Gal? She shares all kinds of information on quilting and recently did a post about the Clarity Foot by Accent and Designs. She shared a video by Patsy Thompson (one of my favorite free motion quilters) that was all about Ruler Work and the Clarity Foot. There is also information to help you figure out which foot is right for your sewing machine.
I have been interested in trying ruler work on my antique Singer sewing machine that I use for all of my free motion quilting and after watching Patsy’s video I ordered the low shank foot. Be sure to read Darlene’s post for more information and also visit Patsy Thompson’s website. This foot can also be used for free motion quilting which is what I will probably use it for. I use a metal darning foot now which I have shown in several posts. I even did a free motion sampler pillow.I’ll update you when I get the new foot for my Singer 15-91 sewing machine.
