It was in a dim room. Its light was not on. It did not have thread on the spindle. If you looked carefully you could see cobwebs and dust bunnies gathering to attack it.
All it needed was attention. It was ready to go into action and show off its skills. Suddenly, this July, the machine worked every day and loved it. It will never be neglected again.
I glued quilt batting fluff to the neglected machine block. Perhaps you can see it in the top photo. The machine didn’t really get dusty because the cleaning ladies take care of the sewing room regularly, but it was lonely until I started doing the block-a-day project.
Below you will find foundations for the 4-inch paper pieced sewing machine blocks. One block has two foundations to accommodate the spool pin. The other foundation is a one piece block (without the spool on top). Click on the small graphics below to find foundations to print out for your own personal use.
And, don’t ever neglect your machine for weeks at a time. Feelings can be hurt.
