I got these two designs done yesterday before the storms hit. They turned out beautifully. I've discovered that my Hemingworth yellow color is a bad spool. My Topaz has done nothing but eat it. It does fine with the other colors. I finally gave up and used a yellow color of Robinson-Anton. It looks close enough that I may get away with it as I have the first block done.
With this block I used Jenny's Sheer Magic Plus stabilizer before using the fusible fleece. I can tell a difference and it's really nice. Her stuff is really nice, but I wish it didn't cost a fortune. I don't think I can afford to do an entire quilt. It may just be a lap size. I really struggle between being cheap or eating the prices for some items.
I know I've been a huge PITA the past the few days but Bernina has really pissed me off as I fell for their marketing ploy. See..even I'm gullible. I paid 16.10 for those titanium needles. EVERYWHERE I called or emailed had the EXACT same needles for under 10 dollars. I gave them the numbers on the cardboard package and asked if there were differences. They all said there wasn't.
This is why I could never work for a sewing machine company. I do love titanium needles. Just make sure you only pay under 10 bucks for them if you decide to try them out.
