I started my morning off REAL early. I think I was troubleshooting the long arm issue all night long. I rechecked all the areas and nothing seems out of sync. Why did it do it? I don't really know. Was the needle plate shifted? Was the backing seam deflecting the needle? Was the needle coming loose from the housing? Why, I may never know, but it seems to be working now.
So, the next step was to unsew the border. I have the fabric needed to repair the rip and I have the quilting unsewn. Oh how I hate to unsew. :(
Then my friend Lorena and I went to our monthly applique lesson. We are doing the BOM for A Home in the Center (I think that is the name) We got our fabric at class and I had all the pieces ready to put on the fabric and cut out. I learned to do the bias strip -- see it on the right? Can you tell what this is going to bee? I still have more to go, but had fun doing this much. Maria is such a fun teacher and I love the way she teaches.
Got home in time to get Ashley from Game Central and then ate dinner and watched Once Upon a Time on Netflix.
I'm feeling more hopeful that I can fix what happened on this quilt for Sandy. Tomorrow I will redo her backing seam and take the selvage off. I'll also piece the border where the broken needle ripped the fabric. Wish there were a way to handle it without piecing a part in there.
