Another Day...

Another Day

Well, I still have not had any decision from Sewing Machines Plus in San Marcos.  I was promised a phone call yesterday and I waited all day with NO phone call.  I will call them this afternoon!  I guess I need to put on my “assertive Linda hat”.  I just hate conflicts!

We decided to go with a different little cowboy for the baby quilt I am making.  I only have 6 weeks to make it and if you knew how I sew, I usually plan at least 4-6 months for finishing a quilt, mostly due to my caregiver schedule and the fact that I hand quilt everything.  This time, I will be forced to do some kind of machine quilting. 

Here is the design I chose and my hubby’s enlarged version.  You can see some of the pattern pieces I have cut out for the appliqué process.  I will be using my new Juki for the appliqué.  I need to figure out what kind of stabilizer to use as I zig-zag stitch.  I tried just copy paper on a sample as I had seen on a youtube video.  NOT!  I could not pull the paper off without destroying the stitches!  Any suggestions?
pieces and parts...

Sewing Machines Plus Update:  Just left another message on their answering machine for the manager to call me.  Pray for a satisfactory resolution to the dilemma at Sewing Machines Plus.  Thanks!

Adding..... another giveaway here at PS I quilt!

I hope it all gets resolved soon. They probably think if you ignore them you will go away.
I use Sulky Tear-Easy stabilizer. Works like a charm and tears away easily.
