I had previously used my walking foot to do the dreaded stitch-in-the-ditch along all the block lines to stabilize the quilt sandwich, and found two things. First, people really dread this job, but I'm reasonably skilled at it. And second, I'm not sure I need to do this. I could probably leave the pins in and just proceed to fmq, but I'd need to try this out before I could say for sure. So it might not matter if I can do SID.
It has been a bit of a learning curve to work on this flat surface, but it is much more comfortable and manageable. See previous post to find out what I did to my table. I had to clear off the stuff from the left side table to make it work, but work it does. I still need a few small adjustments, but those will come. There are other things I could/should be doing, but I can't stop sewing, I like this setup so much! And I need to get Mr. Sweet to put up those shelves he's been promising.
I'm linking this up with WIP Wednesday on The Needle and Thread Network, link here.
