This is my first time working with Hand Dyed Fabrics and I think my machine doesn’t like it. It’s weird because it’s just the same as the other fabric just hand dyed. I do not know why it would make a difference but I find that I have to adjust the tension. I’m using 50W Aurifil Thread so maybe that is why? I don’t know but it may just be my machine period. I’m going to take it to the shop soon because my thread keeps snapping and I do not know why. I’ve cleaned it, oiled it, changed the needle, re-threaded it, etc. and it keeps happening. The machine is in it’s second year and it had it’s annual check up last July. Maybe I use it so much I should be taking it in every six months?
I selected the Forest Canopy kit and received everything on Thursday. This was much faster than I anticipated since I only purchased it on Sunday or Monday. I was happy to get it so quickly so I can get caught up with it.
I love the BlocLoc rulers! I’ve said it before so I won’t gush over them again but they make cutting into these strips soo much easier, more precise and just a whole lot faster.
Nothing too strenuous about this piecing. It was really cut, cut, cut, piece, piece piece and press, press, press! The beige/white/cream of the fabric is really a light green that didn’t come through well on these pictures.
Here the light green looks more yellow/cream.
