This is my second option for the patchwork of the crosses block. It turns out that this one has been a lot more of a challenge than I expected. I might still change it from here, but this is a definite improvement over my first take.
In other quilting news, disaster struck yesterday afternoon, just as the sewing machine store near me was closing its doors. I was sewing together several Hunters Star blocks when suddenly my needle jammed. I got it unstuck, took the needle plate off and cleaned everything since I was getting an error message that said to clean the area of any lint that might be stuck. But the sewing machine will definitely have to go into the shop. I unscrewed just about every part of it, cleaned it thoroughly and put it back together to no avail; I continued to get the same error message.
I worked on it for an hour unti I had to quit because we had plans for the evening. I guess this means I’ll either have to dust off my much older machine and take my regular one into the shop, or I could always use a ruler and use my Sweet Sixteen as a sewing machine for a few days as long as tomorrow’s block isn’t full of tiny patchwork squares.
