We looked at the pattern in the above book to see what we would need. I'm doing the rail fence quilt. I first got to choose the main fabric that had at least three colors in it (top big square). Next I chose coordinating fabrics to make the strips/squares. I got to learn how to measure and cut them all out. It was lunch time by then so we all sat and had lunch and chit chatted. Now was time to dig out my machine (Singer 7300)....tried to wind the bobbin and it didn't want to cooperate...she said it was the gears in the machine messed up and that I should put it to rest. We wound the bobbin on her machine so I could at least try to sew with mine. Wellllllll, I don't have a 1/4 in. foot, nor does my needle move to adjust it so I can sew that size seam. Now I was almost in tears....she went and got one of the Brother Innovis 40's for me to use. Wow weee it practically sews by itself! I practiced sewing straight lines for about 45 minutes. I think I'm straight line challenged! Finally started looking right instead of me looking like a drunk sewer! Could of used a drink about this time, lol! Had a fantastic time except for the machine fiasco...next lesson is Thursday where I start sewing the pieces together!
