I fell in love with these disappearing pinwheels blocks........Missouri Quilt Co. is where I first saw them, but then I found where this blogger Hellen worked out the maths to make them in different sizes......how good was that !...
.....so yesterday I had a little play.
I love pinwheels and I also love churn dash blocks, so how perfect is this block incorporating the two together.....
....oops...can you see how I have the pinwheel turned the wrong way here, but it's so pretty I think I'll just leave it....adds charm, that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!....♥
I only have a spare bedroom for my sewing room, and Sweet Susie was taking up too much room, so I've moved her to the study. Then moved my Pfaff back under the window, she's comfortably sitting on an old door that's resting on two little chest of drawers...
SS looks so lonely here, the table can lift back up when I need to FMQ....which I'm hoping to play a little soon.
On Monday I attended a SS workshop, it was so good.
I learned so much about the tension problems I had been having. Seems The rule about the tension has now been revised and the tension needs to be looser and flow more freely through the bobbin case....I tried it and it made all the difference..yay!
While there I also bought this conversion kit, it's to be able to change feet much easier from open toe to closed toe for ruler work, they just screw onto the new shaft that comes in the kit.....there's also a new couching foot, for of course couching, not something I'm really interested in right now.....but who knows, maybe later!
Halfway through this week already...and all I've done is the three blocks above.
Enjoy the rest of your week....♥
