I just couldn't help myself. I kept thinking about those 2 blue quilts that were all cut out and ready for sewing, and I just had to dive in on one of them. Portugal Blue is under construction, and I am loving how fast the piecing is going.
A bonus: My machine is working fine! How does this happen? When I went to JoAnn's yesterday, I had enough sense to buy a couple of spools of blue thread to use on these quilts. I intentionally avoided the larger spools as this was what I was blaming my trouble on.
Imagine how pleased I was that this "normal" size spool of thread seems to be just what the doctor ordered. No tension problems whatsoever!
