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!

NEWFO FOR APRIL

AUSSIE LOG CABINS

I started these blocks at the beginning of April.  Just using scraps of my Aussie fabrics. My log cabin blocks are scrappy with a 3-1/2" centre block surrounded by 2" logs.  The photo above is computer generated, I haven't actually sashed the blocks as yet.
 
So this quilt is my April NewFo.....   head on over to Cat Patches HERE to see all of the other NewFo projects.

Happy Sewing!!
Helen

  4. I like the black sashing. It makes the quilt look very dramatic.
    Are you going to go with the black? or are you going to audition other colours?
