I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 62, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 23. 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, two Essex and one Singer 20. 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!

THE END.

BLOCK # 22   BLOCKADE
I pieced this one with HST's for the whole block,
a bit bulky in the seams here and there and
some of my intersections are not so great,
but it's DONE!

BLOCK # 23  ILLINOIS ROADS
I have two of the stripes up the wrong way!
and NO! - I'm not unpicking!!

.... the end.



(until next weekend!)

  3. Like I've said before... there are no mistakes - just individual interpretations!
    I like them both!

  5. All your blocks look great. I thought I wanted to do this but i am not too good with little blocks as difficult as these. Good job catching up.

  6. Love your blocks! The Blockade turned out beautifully.
    I thought maybe it would be a struggle, but actually went together well, don't you think?

    Now, we are both caught up and can coast until next Saturday :o)

    Did you see the setting that "ribbonwiz" is using for all her blocks - really wonderful!
