Here is my Hello Betty quilt. I quilted each block in a different stitch for tons of practice. I did freemotion quilting on all of it. I really like how it turned out. I thought it was hopeless once the top was done but I think its a pretty effective quilt design.
You can read in the previous post about this sewing machine but the short version is this. It is my great grandmother’s 1930 era singer treadle. I have had it for years in this house that I purchased from my parents. It was caked with yuck. A friend at work husband started to restore an old treadle he had and the results is the work of art pictured. It stitches like a dream!!! I am thrilled to have this heirloom in my sewing room now!
I also have to share my latest passion. Baby clothes. It is like instant gratification!!! My twin granddaughters are getting bigger. I found tons of free patterns on the internet and well my scrap bag has a few large pieces in it, too. I think that they babies will have little clothes sewn from me for awhile!! Where was the internet when I had little ones, cause this is easy…. brings back all the memories of garment sewing from my 4-H classes in elementary school, I didn’t forget! This little dress is lined and has a built in onesie!
I am working on this Economy right now.
