Lots of sewing done!

I had a great few days of piecing and machine applique – I had a great time and there was hardly a hitch!

cottages march 8  09These are 16 cottages from the book Fig Tree Quilts Houses.  I’ll be putting in black sashings, two scrappy borders on either side of a pinwheel block border.  This will be a happy quilt for me – I’ve have always wanted a house quilt but never got this far.

 

summer pond march 08 Then I got crazy with machine applique, and got caught up on Sindy Rodenmayer’s Fat Cat Patterns Summer Pond.  I had a few already done, and got four more sewn.  I am looking forward to seeing the whole quilt, and it sure is a different theme than my usual flowers and piecing!

Both quilts look great! Isn't Sindy's site a great resource?

By the way, I went to look at your album of vintage machines, but it didn't seem to be there. I wanted to compare your collection to mine. LOL

I love your collection of vintage machines! It reminds me that I really should take pictures of mine - I have a Raymond Treadle, Singer Treadle, Wheeler & Wilson - well - you get the general idea. The only one pictured on my blog so far is the Kaiser handcrank.
