Three weeks ago, while at the Pennsylvania National Quilt Expo I bought a new sewing machine--nothing fancy but much heavier than Mom's. Something I needed to make the denim bags and bears so I wouldn't destroy Mom's. Just yesterday I finally got to use it! A customer and I worked on this design at the same PA National Show so now I might be caught up to last month--only because the projects I had on my to do list before that were pushed farther down the list. I am sure none of you have any idea how that goes!?!?! Guess that is why our UFO pile keeps increasing even though we sew every chance we get.
I had a couple of nice thrift store finds a few weeks ago. They seem to go well with the Vintage ABC quilt from last week. Oh no! Someone opened the chocolates, smashed the walnut shells on the table, left out the newspaper and their blue sweater! Those pesky kids! What should she do?? Are you glad no one expects you to wear a lovely dress, heels and pearls every day?
I started work on the Dick and Jane quilt. I decided to use the flannel backing fabric as the sashing as well. When I make a quilt I often have pieces of batting leftover and for this quilt I joined a few together to make a piece large enough.
I finished putting up insulation in an aluminum shed that I hope to convert to a sewing room. Has anyone done that? You can actually see some of the original posts here and here.
