My first donation quilt of the year will be a baby quilt. A friend had given me the bee fabric awhile back. I thought it would be cute in a baby quilt, but I just couldn't decide on a quilt pattern.
Yesterday, I cut all these five inch squares, 100 of them.
Today, I transformed them into half squares by first drawing a line down the diagonal, then sewing on both sides of the diagonal, and the cutting on the line.
Why I like sewing with the Two Spools is that the feed dogs are the same length so that the fabric travels through evenly.
And the foot is that perfect 1/4 inch for sewing on either side of the line, which I did a lot of today.
If you were wondering why this sewing machine is called a Two Spools, it's because the underneath (where the bobbin would be) holds the second spool of thread. I love sewing with mechanical art.
