I brought my Katharine Guerrier blocks to work on - I had nine completed star centres and masses of HST's and I've now completed all nine blocks. I felt my sewing on the old machine wasn't too good and I was dreading the bobbin running out but refilling with the aid of some free pages from the sewusa site was a doddle - on the Singer 600e the bobbin is left in place and you thread from the needle as if continuing to stitch. How cool is that! I was impressed. I've also been handquilting my Patchwork Party setting blocks In retrospect quilting with coral thread on a coral marked design was not a good idea as I couldn't see the stitch size as I was working.
