I got a new Singer Quantum Stylist 2 years ago when I wanted to learn the FMQ technique and the 2010 wasn't that great at it. But I wanted to keep the 2010 out for things like assembly line sewing and to help not to have to change thread colors all the time in one machine and to just make my sewing room look nice. I already made one for the Quantum so now the "old girl" would get one!
I looked through my stash for fabric and I had bought this sewing theme related fabric back in December as it just jumped out at me off the rack and I just loved it!
I have been saving it for something special. I thought a cover for my "third child" special enough! So I matched the red and the light blue solids with it.
I made my own pattern for the machine...all that is is just measuring from the bottom front, across the top and down to the bottom back for the top piece and side to side and top to bottom of the side of the machine and cut that twice.
I cut 2,1/2inch strips of the red and blue and sewed them together then cut them into 2,1/2 inch pieces and sewed them together checkerboard style.
I used a baby receiving blanket as the "batting" and did some FMQ...just some straight stitching and then assembled it using a polyester/cotton broadcloth as the lining.
