Babylock Woes - aka I hate my Babylock

I haven't been sewing much because I have so many problems with my sewing machine. I don't have a back-up machine, so I'm really stuck when the machine acts up. This is beyond frustrating - I can't pin down a common denominator, and things don't go awry the same way every time. AARRGGHHH. Will take it to the shop - again - on the weekend, I guess. GRRR!!

I did manage to finish assembling another quilt top - Red Floral Crumbs. Thats 8 crumb tops assembled, and the blocks ready for two more - if I ever get my machine working properly, I'll be birthing quilts (with fleece) until the cows come home!

I also whipped up 3 more crumb blocks - look at the top and right strips on the middle block - those are made from housedresses I from my late MIL - I nabbed them from her linen closet, and cut them up for scraps. I absolutely love that orange stripe - 70's or WHAT!!!


  1. Look at all your crumbs! They look great - I think I need to go sew some on mine and just relax!

    Thanks for your comment....I should let things like that pass by but I kind of felt like I was being called a cheater...overly sensitive of me I'm sure!

  2. Ugh! I hate that nesting thing, too! Mine was doing that on a recent project and I found that the thread wasn't threaded quite right in one little spot. I wonder if a new needle and/or oiling would help. These machines sure are mysterious things! I hope your machine trouble is fixed and won't get in the way of your sewing. - Kathy at http://www.stashinhalf.blogspot.com
