I have used the Featherweight for all of the piecing on these projects. I do like it. I find that my seams are straighter and the stitches are very uniform. Such precision requires less "squaring up" at the end. Gotta love that.
This larger tote is ready to quilt. While I would love to do some free form quilting, I think I will stick to ditch stitching. It is a demonstration project, after all. Once it is quilted, I will stitch it up the sides and gusset the bottom to give it some shape. These are my colors.
