It is the first of the month so it is time to catch up on my block of
the months. on April 1st, I shared block 4 from the blogger girls BOM
and today is my show n tell for the Wishes quilt along from Fat Quarter Shop.
I am on month 4 of the quilt along. These blocks are so fun because they are 18″ finished. They get big very fast compared to the blogger girls BOM that are 6″ finished.
Time to change my machine needle. See how the seams kind of pucker? Yep, should have put in a new needle. Do you not change your needle until it breaks? Guilty. I have read that you should change your needle every time you start a new project. I tend to work on several projects at once and time slips away.
So now that I have my monthly block obligations caught up, I am putting a new needle in my machine, giving it a fresh oiling and then on to making market quilts. Can’t wait to to show you a few peeks along the way.
Maybe you should change your needle every first of the month?… Would be a good idea for me too as Inam always sewing on more then one project…
I never realized puckering seams could be due to a dull needle. Time to write a reminder on my calendar to replace it monthly. Thanks for sharing.
I didn't realize those Wishes blocks were so big…and I am terrible at changing my needle…maybe I should try to do it each month when working on my Block of the Month projects, too…it would be a good reminder!
I love reading your blog… you are amazing! I can't believe how much you get done. I need to follow you around. Have a great day! Joyce
