I love my Singer 201-2. She pieces beautifully and her thread tension is wonderful. She’s nice and quiet too! The only things I wish she had is a knee lift and a wide foot pedal but I love her all the same.
We bonded last night working on 4 patch units. I did about 200 of them (needed 192 for Easy Street).
I had to tape some envelopes behind her so my pieces didn’t fall between the sewing cabinet and the wall. They become impossible to retrieve down there! I need to find some prettier paper to tape behind Betty.
My little seams spin so nicely! If you’ve never pressed your 4-patch units with a little spun middle like that you should give it a try. Bonnie has a little tutorial on how it is done. It presses out nice and flat.
I love when your pieced units come out the exact size you’re looking for.
I have a bin full of four patches that need pressing now. That’ll be some TV work tonight after I sew some border units for Orca Bay.
The corgis are doing their usual antics. Bernie is on the left there showing just how hungry she is all the time and the photo on the right shows my little log dogs being lazy.
