this and that

The weather has been pretty good so the garden is growing.    Here are some pictures (click pictures to enlarge)

I am making progress on the rose quilt

Teddy is helping too

I started a different machine quilted project.    I am using the Treadle machine


Here is the top layered


It is an old top.    I think from the 40’s or there about.     It is not flat or square but I like the simple design.

The first thing I did is quilt in the ditch around the squares using a walking foot .   Here it is after that is done


The quilting will be feathers ….here is the start


This one will go fast….so I’ll show some more pictures next time

Happy quilting

    Your garden is looking fabulous. Lansing is so much farther ahead of us in Maine – my late daffodils are still in bloom! But the cold ocean wind is probably holding my plants back.
    The feathered quilt is going to be stunning!

      wow…you are a few weeks behind us. I am so glad that spring was slower here too……gradual warming is so much better than going from snow to 80 degrees in a week

  3. Tim… you are an inspiration. Your handwork is stunning and your dedication to this artistry admirable. Love your site!!!
