Just finished this little doll quilt today. The binding was sewn on using my Featherweight which has, in the past, presented a tension problem. Being in a hurry, I thought I would try again instead of getting out another sewing machine. By loosening the tension just a bit, I was able to sew with no difficulty. A size 14 needle was in the machine for paper piecing - yes, I'm still at it! - and it worked out just fine.
Now I'm off to Texas for the wedding of daughter #2 (of 2). We are spending one night, after the wedding, in San Antonio, so I hope to have a report of a quilt store there called Las Colchas. Their website says that they specialize in reproduction fabrics so I plan to take a look!
As you can see, I'm having trouble with my posting - everything looks as I want it to, and then, when I publish the post, it has a mind of it's own. I'll work on a remedy when I return; sorry!
