Sewing Day

20 Jul

Our Quilting Guild has a Sew Day once a month and you can bring any unfinished projects to work on. I am currently working on a new quilt and have spent a lot of time cutting out fabric.Finally, I have started sewing the blocks together. The quilt I am making is called a “1941 Nine Patch” and can not wait to see the end result.  Below is a picture of the one completed block. Eleven more to go!

Today I got to see a 1957 and 1939 sewing machine which I thought was cool looking. I was surprised how quiet the sewing machines were.

    I have a 1917 singer that still works and has the most amazing attachments. I can’t use it at the moment because I need a new rubber O ring for the bobbin winding which I can’t buy locally. I’m sooo looking forward to getting it going again. I taught my girls to sew on it.
