Clothespin Bag No 4



Thought I'll post another one of the clothespin bag I made.
I will be busy again the next few weeks. Not on holiday though! My husband is going in for his fourth knee surgery. This time the doctor will put a donor ligament in. And inject stem cells after a week. He dreads the 4 hours of physiotherapy everyday that he has to do. This time the duration for his physio will be more than 8 weeks. So guess I will be doing applique blocks at the doctor's waiting room!!! ( I stay more than an hr's drive from the hospital so can't go home!!!)

Hi Janovi,

Thanks for visiting. I appreciate your kind comment on my quilt.

I don't tweak the machine settings very much when I machine quilt - but I do watch how the stitches turn out, and might just tweak the upper or lower thread tension a little bit. I find that using fine threads (at least 60 wt) helps with the look when quilting with home machine.

Love your clothes pin bag. Your latest quilt looks good too. I love the green/purple color combination.

Hope your husband gets to feeling better soon.
