This week we are putting Bo Peep together on our block. While I love the sheep, finishing Bo Peep makes my heart sing. There is just something about Sunbonnet Sue-my inspiration for this Bo Peep-that feels so good. If you haven't joined my Facebook Sew Along group yet I hope you will come over for a visit and share a photo of your Little Bo Peep. It always brings me great joy to see what you are making.
I hope you had wonderful Thanksgiving last week and a chance to get all caught up. I think all of my technical issues have finally been resolved so hopefully we can continue on without further interruption.

I mention in part 1 that I got the idea for the pattern overlay from
Becky Goldsmith at Piece O' Cake. This is her video of what she uses and how she uses it.
In case you have missed it I am doing the 2019 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge. There have been some fun topics so far, including some with links to my favorite quilting tools and another with some homemade gift ideas so be sure and check them out.
Until next time....
I used to do a lot of painting; oil and watercolor mainly. Different brushes were used for different techniques to create the affect I desired. The same is true with the many sewing machine feet we have available now. Today I am thinking about which is my favorite presser foot.
It is a tough choice. The one I use the most often is my Quarter Inch Foot. But I could get by without it if I had to, though I am very glad I have it. Giving this more thought I decided I would have to go with the Walking Foot. This foot gets used to do a lot of the machine quilting I do on my domestic machine. The adjustable guides that come with it make it easy to sew grid line patterns. I also use it to put on my bindings which I attach to the front of my quilts with my machine before hand stitching them down to the back side of the quilt. These are both jobs that are made so much easier by the even feeding of the top and bottom layers of the quilt that a Walking Foot is known for. The 1/8" and 1/4" markings on it also take the guess work out of sewing seams and knowing where to stop to rotate my quilt when I am turning corners.
So you win Walking Foot. You strange and clunky looking thing. You sometimes give me fits trying to attach you correctly to my machine but in the end you have proven yourself a most useful friend. How about you? What would you choose as your favorite presser foot? Let me know in the comments.
Yesterday I shared a list of things that I like to have in my quilt studio. Today I want to share ideas for creative gifts you can make and give. Many of these I have saved from Pinterest which is a whole other life.
