My New Friend

Say hello to my new friend. It is a quarter inch foot for my vintage Featherweight. I got this little baby just before Christmas, but it took me until yesterday to have a chance to try it out. Wow, does it make a difference!

You see that little black fence on the right side? It rides just outside the seam as you sew, and it actually makes it difficult NOT to sew a quarter inch seam. I was feeding little HS triangles through the old gal WITHOUT pinning first and getting nice even straight seams. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

I spent yesterday cutting out fabric for the guild mystery quilt and trying a first, test block. Unfortunately, two of the fabrics just won't play nicely together, so I am going to have to use something else for the second color. I think what I was planning to use for one of the borders is going to work. I just have my fingers crossed that I bought enough of it.
