Happy New Year

The bad news is time flies…….the good news is you are the pilot

I plan to pilot my plane to positive places this year.

I am making some progress on the Rose quilt.      I washed it to get out all of my markings  (crayola washable markers all come out in the wash, gentle cycle warm water and Tide detergent) and hung it to dry…and now working on the fill quilting on the background.
A video of that coming soon but here are pictures.

Teddy is helping to hold it in place.
For new year I don’t usually make resolutions but I will make one this year…..I am going to finish this quilt!

I am also working on treadle quilting.

The new machine is fun.   Here is a video of quilting the feathers. There is no sound in the video but you can watch me make a feather on a singer 66 treadle.

Teddy tried to help but his feet don’t reach the treadle pedal.

Happy New Year

Happy Quilting

    As always gorgeous quilting, sewing , creating. I have a question for you, a short time ago, you showed a quilt design that you started, it was a center almost circle that then went out in a circular motion to cover the quilt. I am very interested in seeing how you are doing with that one. I loved the idea.
    Happy New Year,
