I got my machine back and it is looking great!! I was so relieved when I got the call only one week after drop off , and pleasantly surprised since they told me it would be two or three weeks when I dropped it off. But she is all clean and working great.
I even started some projects right away.
This is a baby blanket I made from the Last-Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts book. I didn't follow the size specifications but I did use their techniques. I will be adding the decorative quilted bits hopefully this week. I have had this fabric in my stash for way too long and I think it has come out SO cute. I have the same fabric in pink and brown stripes and think I am going to make it with a white backing. It is a pretty quick project too which I am always a fan of. Instant gratification ... you can't beat it.
I am holding true to my New Years resolution on finishing up projects and fabric that I already have. I feel so accomplished and it's only the first of February!
