Back to Sewing!


I finally got back to my sewing machine today! I've had a busy stretch at work but I'm finally off for a few days. I couldn't wait to get back and finish my latest block for the Tone It Down Quilt Along sponsored by American Patchwork and Quilting. I didn't have too much to do since the block was partially sewn together.


Here are the three blocks all together. I think I like it! It's so great to hunt through my stash and find fabrics I had forgotten I even had. I've already started cutting the pieces for the next block. As you can tell, it takes many pieces per block. I need 20 blocks. I'll get there, eventually!!

I was hoping I could have shown you the feathers I quilted today. However, the photographs didn't come out too good. I used black thread on a marble black fabric. It's impossible to see. I'll post pictures when I work on a different part of the quilt. I'm hoping you'll be able to actually see what I quilted!

My Busy Longarm!

Here's the vintage quilt with the binding all attached! I can't believe this quilt is finished. It felt like a privilege to me ...
