Serendipity Progress

This is taking much longer than I would have guessed, but it's almost ready for the outer border.
It's just tossed over the sofa right now, waiting to be pressed so I can cut and attach the borders.
I like the flavor these colors and fabrics give it.  Although teal is one of my favorite colors, this is not quite teal.  The colors are pleasant, and I'm thinking abut how I will quilt it.  Usually my quilts have been living in my mind, and sometimes on paper, and almost always in a project box for quite a while.  This was in my mind for mere minutes from the time I saw the Cabin Fever Five Fat Quarter Fun Project until I was pulling and cutting fabrics. My sewing machine has not been happy with the bobbins I've used, although they are the bobbins I always use, and I've re-oiled, cleaned out thread from the bobbin area, messed with the bobbin holder, etc.  Not in the mood for fiddly stuff--despite knowing that I need to shorten the belt just a bit--another fiddly thing that I'm putting off.

Now it's back to work, so I'm hoping for a bit of time throughout the week for a bit more sewing.

Happy quilting, knitting, etc., friends,

What a comfy quilt. Sorry to hear about your challenges working with the treadle sewing machine. Sew today, fiddle on another day.

Looks nice! No fun when the machines start acting up.
