025 Half Rectangle Triangles

I was intrigued and inspired by this striking quilt, but I wanted a rectangular quilt....so it was necessary to learn how to make HRT (half rectangle triangle).
My numbered puzzle! 

Once I got the hang of it, they were easy enough.... one thing I needed to remember was that there are 2 different directions of the HRT....which can't be interchanged.


I was pleased with how it turned out, and somehow I didn't take a picture of the back (can't believe that) so am hoping the recipient will take a few pictures for me.

Juki Cleaning

After purchasing a second Juki to go with the mid arm frame I bought, the woman I bought them from gave me a few tips - among them was how to clean the Juki. It has a small lid that you can remove to clean a portion of the underside of the machine, but what no one tells you is that you can remove the screws and take the whole bottom off. 

I've got a before and after photo for you to see. 
For the first time, I had DH help me, but it certainly can be a one person job. I vacuumed and brushed out the whole underside; put the bottom back on...and done!
