Welcome to TSP

Popping over to the darkside is a natural progression from making tote bags.  Just make a couple of biggish blocks, add a border all around and you have the main parts of another tote.

Hello and welcome to TSP, hope you enjoy being one of us.
I grew up in Mirfield and mum used to 'haunt' the Monday market in Huddersfield - happy memories.

Welcome  @Lemz79 ! You've picked an excellent machine. Brother are extremely user friendly for novice sewists. That has some nice features.

@UttaRetch it's too late Honey. The Brother machine she bought is from the quilting line. It came with a ¼ inch foot, free motion quilt foot, walking foot with guide and a mahoosive extension table. Not to mention the quilting stitches. The enticement video on the Brother site features sewing up a....wait for it....quilt!  :dance:  :laughing:

What does the 'fc' mean.  Okay, I guess the 'q' stands for quilt, but what about the 'c'.

Welcome @Lemz79  from me, too.  I don't understand any of the patchwork and quilting jabber, so if I were you, I'd stick to clothes and bags  :devil: :D  xx
