Piggy and the machine

I am enjoying the raw edge applique so much and the effects it produces.  It fits my personality which loves all things whimsical and wandering. For me, it is a technique to allows the mind and thread to go with the flow and the results are fanciful and fun.

I’m delving into FMQ too. My poor old White sewing machine which I love dearly (that my Mom bought me 20 odd years ago) is very stress very basic. It does not have a down option for the feeder dog (down boy down!) so I taped a piece of card stock paper over it and stitched with the basic sewing foot and that actually works for the most part. Good news: I found what I hope is a compatible free motion quilting foot (for $2.78 no less!) and a darning plate (to cover the dern dog) online and I now just have to wait for the package and see.  Practice does make all the difference though and I am going to just keep on sewing away :).

Thanks for visiting! ~Abbie 💫
