|CIVIL WAR QUILT BLOCK # 24 LADIES' AID ALBUM|
I took this photo last night, just after I had finished sewing,
should have given it a better press!
I finally sat down last night and set up my Singer 201K. I read the book, checked out everything, put a new needle in, threaded it up and away I went!!! I can't tell you just how beautifully this machine sews! It's extremely quiet, hums along steadily and sews absolutely straight!! I put a piece of blue painters tape to mark my 1/4" and my block pieced up to be exactly 8-1/2" square! Spot on!! The stitches are very neat - I even played with the reverse lever to make sure it worked! I love how you just put the needle down at the beginning, turn the flywheel and move the knee shifter to the right and away she goes!!!
This block called for a fussy cut 3-1/2" square for the centre - I used my "Get Squared" ruler by June Tailor - cuts a perfect fussy cut square!!
Catching up on some housework today :-( but once I'm done with that, I will be back working on the Royal Critters quilt. You thought I just sat and sewed ALL day, didn't you?! but every now and then one MUST sweep the floors!!
