Last month I got my new Brother, who I am still to get used to loving. Having used a gentle, elderly (she is all of 76 years old!) hand-cranked Singer all these years, it is not easy getting accustomed to the brash new baby – who runs when I ask it to walk . Anyways, I decided I would devote November and December to UFOs (unfinished objects) so that I could start the new year with a fresh slate. And get to know the new family member better!
One of the few UFOs I managed to complete was this from March. (Blogged about here)
This is my first quilting on the Brother; I did not have the walking foot, so I have used the regular foot.
There are many things I do not like about this – firstly the red binding! I also hate the machine sewing in blue on the binding – it sticks out like a sore thumb 🙁
But what really makes me cringe is the back!
I did like it much better unquilted.
I would love to give it away, but am going to keep it – as a reminder of how bad I was, when I (hopefully!) become better.
