I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 63, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 25. 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 , one Singer 20. one Singer 40 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!

Wide Binding - cut 4"

Ironing the fold - I lay the strip across the width of the board ... Not the length.  This stops any wave forming when you press.

I quilted around the box - blue painters tape!  I have quilted in the ditch on all of the seams first .... now I'm up to the binding!

Cheers from Helen
