Testing #2 - Lexus

Now that the Pinto is set up for power chain-piecing -

Let’s see if I can get my Lexus set up for putting the blocks together - ;))

Testing #2 - Lexus -
1/4” foot with flange guide - 1/4” seam stitch - postit notes for guide -
Can't use the magnetic guide on Lily - see's allergic electronic -
I added some purple tape to the extension table - let’s see if that helps -
I saw blue tape on Bonnie's blog -
And Tracy reminded me in one of her comments -

A - Press it - Only a hair/thread or two off -

B - One more time - just because -
Looks like the trick is to NOT mush it up against the guide -
Just nice and easy - go with the flow - so to speak -

OK - I’m done testing -

Now it’s time to SEW -

But WAIT!!

I still have string blocks to make -

And they need a size 14 needle -

And my Pinto is already set up with a size 12 needle for piecing -

(And is perfectly capable of sewing the blocks together - ;))

So what if -

I set up my Lexus/Lily with a size 14 needle -

And use her for sewing the string blocks???

Yeah - I'm going to do that!!

Then when I get crappy seam allowances bored -

I can switch to sewing string blocks - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. Help me I ask for you as me
    How I can pictures like that to make under what the html is there code?
    I believe one like that than on your side the pink left-handed quilter picture., under it the html with a code!

  2. I love how you have nicknamed your sewing machines. What are they really?

    I only have one a Pfaff Tiptronic 2040. I just call it as it is spelled....fffffffff. hee hee


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
