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

Here is the top layered

DSCN9816

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

    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!!!
