I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 62, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 24. I enjoy embroidery and applique and prefer to machine piece and quilt my projects. I love my vintage Singer sewing machines especially my Featherweight 222K. I've recently started collecting Miniature Sewing Machines, three Essex and one Singer 20 and a Vulcan Countess. My love of sewing I believe comes from my Grandmother - I still have the drawings she made for me to embroider on tea towels many many years ago!

Here I am, out on the verandah again!!! Pinning the Brights Baby Quilt. Today is quite overcast, rain coming perhaps, so I'll get this done quickly and try and get in some quilting in the afternoon. My plan is to ditch quilt across the centres and border, then meander all over the star blocks with white thread. The pieced border will get its quilting when I put the binding on - once again using the machine method here. I just LOVE doing the binding this way, especially for quilts which will be washed many times.

I'll be back later to show you a pic of the pinned quilt - the back will be quilted with black cotton and you will see why when I show you a picture!!!

Hope everyone is having a lovely day!

Happy Sewing!
