That certainly is going to be stunning, Judy. Almost glows in the dark. But is that pink I'm seeing in there?
Yes, there is some pink in there. (Hanging head in shame.)
When you buy a kit from Kaffe Fassett you accept what the master deals out.
There were some substituted fabrics from those in the original quilt shown in the photo because the original prints had gone out of production but that could not be helped. And I have also found some of the Fassett fabrics feel a bit "flimsy-ish" to my way of thinking, more like dress fabrics than quilt fabrics. More like Liberty of London dress goods.
Oh, well, I tell myself I won't live long enough to wear this thing out.
After 13 plus years I have finally figured out how the needle threaded on my machine works. I was shown when I purchased the machine, Reshown a number of times on request when I had the machine serviced, but could never get the threader to work for me. I have tried a number of times over the years but it only created frustration at a high level. Than last week I was reading the blog rachelrossidesign and she had a video, very clear, very slow and now I can use the needle threaded. Now to remember to use it.
Put a small label sticker on your machine near the needle area (the kind of label offices put on file folders) with the name "rachelrossidesign" on it as a memory jogger.
(I'll send you the kind of label I'm thinking about if you do not have one handy; no need for you to buy a whole package. Send me your snail mail addy through the forum messaging system.)
That will indeed be a "hot " quilt. Enjoy making it. Are you wearing oven mitts?
Jo, I don't use mine because it rarely works. Easier to thread myself. Maybe the problem is me. I have considered that I may just not have had the patience to learn to use it correctly.
Thank Judy, I have labels so just might put one on it.
Cathy, I was thinking like you, either the threader is defective or I am. But after I watch the short video and understood how a threader worked I was able to figure out how to make mine work for me.
One block done and twenty-eight more to go. (Those are binding and borders pinned on the left side of design wall.)
I am starting a new online polymer clay class on April 1st that is supposed to run until the end of May. It might be the clay class that drives me around the bend (the instructor is a bit of an obsessive perfectionist) but then again it might be a great deal of fun. Sigh. If you are curious, check out www.dancormier.ca and look at the designs under his name on his home page. Wish me luck. LOL
This one is going to be awesome!
