I mentioned yesterday that I was loving Gwen Marston's new book -- Liberated Quiltmaking II -- and here's proof! I took out the scrap bag and just started playing. It's fun and seems to work best when you stop thinking too much. My only issue is having the iron and sewing machine in two different rooms, which slowed down progress considerably.
Oh, and the Pfaff is having serious tension issues. Any suggestions on a fix? I was going to Google it today in an attempt to accomplish a home repair, but I'm afraid this means a trip to the sewing machine repairman. Boo.
