Another finish....

A friend of mine had a quilt that her husbands grandmother had made that needed some squares replaced so today I finally got to a stopping place on it... Hope she's pleased...
Something over 20 blocks were replaced, 3 were just mended, and several quilting lines were repaired.

Treadle on!

I had a wonderful experience this morning! The treadle machine my old school chum has , had a broken tension spring, so I offered to replace it for her if she'd pay for the spring... It's a 1916 model 127 Singer just like my 1926 model 127... So... Well, this is how it's running now...

Linda V. Taylor class!

Squealing with joy!!!! I was blessed to get to take a class with Linda V. Taylor at Linda's Electric Quilting in McKinney, Tx. Yesterday! What fun! We worked on learning about building our repertoire of quilting ideas! The book we used was, Quilting With Linda 63 Ideas for, blocks, triangles and techniques for quilting around applique/embroidery... And I got my copy signed by Linda!
We actually got to work hands on with some of the ideas...and I have to admit, I was all thumbs...but I sat down at my machine this morning...setup the way I like it...and... Here, I'll show you the difference!
At the workshop...
Now, this morning!
I don't know about you, but I see a vast improvement! I didn't realize how accustomed to my machine And its height, micro handles, and my stool I was! Sooo glad I took this class!
