Crank, crank, crank . . . I'm in love with my Singer 99. This gal is 82 years old, (the machine, not ME!) She sews amazing. The quiet is mesmerizing.
The sewing began on Friday.
I picked up this quilt fabric at the guild meeting last week. It was already cut into strips. After I made it, I thought hey, piece of cake.
So I dug into my fabric bins (yes I have more than one tote of fabric) and came up with the following:
This didn't photograph near as pretty as it really is. The border fabric is tiny black and white hounds tooth print. I remember buying this butterfly fabric. I sent a fat quarter to my friend Cathy in Australia years ago.
My friend Maggie gave me this map print along with yards of coordinating fabric. All I had to do was sew the border on.
Four quilts in 3 days, one crank at a time.
The top quilt is a donation for foster babies. I'm not sure what I'll do with the other ones. First they will all have to be machine quilted.
It's all in a day or two of cranking!
