Playing With My New Toy

I have an appointment for a lesson on my new Brother SB7500 sewing machine Wednesday of this week. (tomorrow) I've been "piddling" with it just to see what I can remember from the short instructional I received when I bought it. What fun!!

This is what I did yesterday afternoon. I doubt I did it correctly, but who's gonna know?
It's not a fancy smancy high dollar monogram and embroidery machine, so I'll have to do things a little differently, but it will work well for Klaire's my needs.
I spent quite a bit of time online last night looking at ideas for Onesies. So many ideas, so little time!!

Yesterday I also thought I'd finished my Deck-Ade the Halls quilt along top. And if I wasn't so picky, I could say I actually did, but.....
I'm not digging the corners. I intended to miter the border but lacked about six inches having enough of the fabric to do that. I did it this way and I just can't feel good about the white that jumps out, breaking up the red in the border. I do have a tiny bit of it left, (what I cut off the sides to attach the bottom and top) so what I'm thinking is, to applique a piece of it from the end of the red on the sides, to the red on the bottom. Think that will work??

  1. Glad you are happier with this new machine. I would put cornerstones in the final border. Then it will all be symetrical and less like a patch. It is pretty border fabric.
