Some Hand Quilting and the Start of Piecing

I started to get working on the piecing of this quilt

I made a video of how I am doing that……..I am testing a new camera

More piecing soon …..with different colors πŸ˜‰

I’m watching election returns because I can’t help it, but working on some hand quilting


Happy Quilting

    I LOVE hearing that treadle machine! Makes me anxious to get mine up and running. (I have been refurbishing the cabinet.) A Model 66 goes in it. I also have an 1880’s Davis treadle, but I’ve been lazy about cleaning it and figuring out how to load the bullet shuttle bobbin.

    Morning Tim and Teddy and a big Hi from Sunny FNQLD. Where the birds are rushing around and building nests and the trees are all in full flower it looks beautiful. Tim that design looks so exciting, can not wait till tomorrow morning! LOL. Happy sewing. Cheers Glenda Australia.

    Thanks for the video on the start of this new quilt. I am impressed with all the parts that you need to coordinate – the convex and concave curves, the pinning and pucker-taming, and then you are using your legs to power the machine!!! Just love it!

  5. You do such wonderful work, whether by hand or machine. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

    Your work is so wonderful, and so inspirational, Tim! What better thing to do while watching returns than hand quilt? Actually, I think I will be hand piecing.. working on a forever Grandmother’s Flower Garden! Thanks for blogging!
