My 17 yr. old granddaughter, Kari, finished her first, totally sewn and quilted by her quilt:
I finished up the last of the QFC quilts I had waiting for me:
And here are the total quilts that will be sent to Alabama later today:
and another angle:
I have a Patriotic quilt kit I’m putting together to send off for the ladies going to Sew Fest. I’m unable to attend this year and it’s driving me crazy!!!!! Quilters for Comfort also does Aug/Sept cause as our last endeavor of the year then it’s time for working on those holiday projects…Can’t believe it’s so quickly approaching! For Aug / Sept. the cause is for a boys home and I’m thinking some sort of motor vehicle – motorcycles – what boy doesn’t like a motorcycle?!
And then there’s this little cutie:
My Featherweight….. I’ve written about her before – my dad was going to throw her away in a dumpster! I rescued her and taught all my kids to sew on her. Yesterday while Kari was working on her quilt, I pulled her out and did some sewing (you can see my strips bunched up behind her). She’s not in pristine condition and her box is in really bad shape (and smells awful!). She lived in a rickety old storage shed for who-knows-how-many years. I have scraped the old peeling paint off the bottom of her and repainted – but I’ve been thinking of giving her a face lift! I see pictures of the little colorful Featherweights, I’ve seen them at quilt shows – they’re so cute…. but quite frankly, I am not going to pay several hundreds of dollars to have someone paint my machine. Looking at her yesterday, I think between the hubby and myself, we could probably do a pretty good job of fixing her up. I would love to see her a beautiful lavender color. And you can buy those gold paint pens….. I could trace and cut stencils for her decorative trim…. Just some stuff I’m thinking about….
Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesdayl
