Friendship Block

I made my block today for a Friendship Quilt being made for a very special person. It's not the original block I was going to make, but I guess templates and I just can NOT see eye to eye. I did like the way this one turned out though.I also sewed with my Juki, which I thought worked, but it does NOT, unless it wants to. Right now, I'm not sure what I will do about it. It is sporatic, with the thread cutter and needle up/down button 'acting up' together. It supposedly has a new circuit board in it, but I'm not so sure. I cannot figure out a pattern to it's workings and not workings. It sews perfectly, so it can be used, but the thread cutter and needle up/down buttons have a mind of their own. I have emailed my friendly Juki friend 'Clive' in New Zealand to see if he has any more suggestions. In the meantime, I am NOT going to think about it anymore.

Have a wonderful weekend. Stay happy and safe. I think I see a motorcycle ride in my future!


I draw a circle, not a heart, around you,

My husband, the one I love,

Because a heart can break, But a circle goes on forever.

Happiness is being married to my best friend.

the block turned out great. It looks almost 3-D. Good luck with your Juki. I know it must be discouraging, but hang in there. I hear such good things about them.
