It was Sunday - my day to start in on Clue # 1 of the Bonnie Hunter's Grand illusion mystery. I want this to be Wild Cherry's first piecing project. I got a little excited and thought I was just going to sit down & go. NOT.
I hadn't given her a test drive. I didn't have seam allowance marked or seam guide installed. I didn't have the tension set for sewing batiks. I was SO NOT ready to sit & sew. Not to mention I didn't have any fabric cut! Fortunately, the set up and test block was quick & painless!
Here she is - Wild Cherry - sewing the very first HST!
She is fabulous!!! Smooth and steady. Not to mention the wonderful single hole needle plate - perfect for piecing.
How nice it is to not have the HST get 'eaten' by the sewing machine, mangling points and stretching bias edges.
