Stepping back

This evening I pieced this 12-inch block on my old sewing machine. I designed it myself and though it came together nicely, I don't think I'd want to do a lot of them due to the mixed construction techniques.

I am thrilled to announce I sold the QE 4.0 over the weekend (although it was kind of sad to let it go) and am piecing on this machine for the week, until I get my new machine this weekend - yay! It pieces beautifully, but I keep forgetting about the manual presser-foot, and start sewing with it up! I'm missing a few of the extra features of the QE, but for the most part it makes no real difference for piecing, once I rememeber, and somehow this one actually seems smoother and steadier. I won't be doing any quilting on it, but I've plenty of cutting, piecing and other work to do.
