In the making of this quilt I realized why I don't strip more quilts, my sewing machine. Don't get me wrong, I love my old Kenmore but that is the problem, it's old and doesn't have any fancy bells and whistles. This was a present from my parents when I first started sewing years ago making costumes for the plays that my children were in. And being a self-taught seamstress, my Kenmore and I have been through many trials and tribulations, suffering together through defeats and celebrating many feats!
But all relationships simmer out and like any true blooded woman, I traded up!
I am so impressed and a bit overwhelmed with my new love! We are off to a wonderful start and the Frida throw was my first completed project with my new sewing machine.
I always learn something on every project and wanted to share what I learned this project. I learned that ironing is very important in every project and it really matters which way you press your seams. Such a simple concept but something I had to learn the hard way!
