I didn't get much sewing time this week because I had meetings each evening after work Monday through Friday. So with limited time available to me during the week days, I cut more flowers on my Go! cutter and placed sets into baggies.
On Saturday and Sunday I started quilting the Hot and Cold quilt. I had some problems with thread constantly breaking. I changed the needle, cleaned the machine, and even changed the type of needle. I did have a little better luck if I sewed at a much slower speed though. In doing that, it's taking twice as long to get it quilted. I'm just doing simple free style wiggly lines, changing variegated threads in the "hot" and "cold" blocks. I got a chance to stabilize between the blocks in both directions and then quilted 4 of the 8 rows of blocks. I have scrap quilting club this weekend so I don't know how much further I'll get on it this week. I'm looking forward to washing this one to achieve that old fashion style texture.
