Mosaic Monday


First, I am showing you what I worked on over the weekend. I had some time in the
mornings to make a little headway on this quilt.
Well, that is until my needle hit a pin...  and broke my needle. I rarely use pins. It was the second pin I used that day.
But it somehow threw my featherweight out of whack...
After an hour or so I gave up and am now seeking wisdom from the Singer Guru's.
I have a call into a friend of mine who is very knowledgeable right now...
fingers crossed that it doesn't have to go in for serious repair work. *g*

So onward...
here are of my favorite pictures from Market 2011.

Unfortunately, there were several designers that were not
having booths this year.
I love looking at the photos of the displays.
I have a degree in Design, Display and Visual Promotion...
(not something I actually do) so, needless to say I love
that aspect of Market... the fabric is just icing on the cake!

It's stunning, Sinta. I'm sorry you hit a pin while sewing and wish I could help with your Featherweight. I hope the problem will be resolved soon.

That quilt is beautiful, Sinta. And I sure hope your little Featherweight won't need anything major. I know she's your "go to" machine! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you!

XOXO,

Cyndi

I'm really sorry about your machine. Is it a timing issue? My Bernina is in the shop now, too, and I miss it. I love your quilt - gorgeousness!!! My degree is textiles and clothing (and I use it constantly) but I wish I could have minored in yours. It sounds like fun!

I use a Featherweight all tme and the main thing to do when hitting a needle is to make sure the needle is sharp. I do this every and then and have no problem . Usually it breaks the needle and all you need to do it put in another needle

Sinta, this is beautiful! I hope your FW is all better now! :)

Miss Jean said...

I just love this quilt. What fabrics did you use? Also, I looked at your Studley and Mrs. quilt and am curious as to what fabrics you used for that as well. Looking over your quilts I am so impressed with your fabric/color selections. They are right up my alley and are gorgeous!!!
