I finally finished the quilt for little Grayden.
He was due in August, but came early. I was so close to having his quilt finished, but...
Although the top was complete, I had not done the quilting.
Now, here it is, blowing in the breeze (yes, the quilt is square, it was a breezy day outside :)
I used the 'yellow brick road' pattern that I had purchased to make a king size quilt out of batiks for me and mister. I like it! It was fairly simple. Grayden's mom and grandmom picked out the fabrics.
I hope you enjoy your quilt Grayden!
Hugs and Kisses to you little man!
lookie what i found. something drew me into my favorite catholic thrift store one day about a month ago and this is what was waiting for me.
an absolutely marvelous, older janome new home sewing machine!
don't think it was ever actually used ~ really.
not a scratch on it. original manual and accessories in perfect shape.
it is tough - sews leather, canvas, thick layers.
someone went to a lot of trouble turning an old desk into a sewing cabinet for the owner, and then it just sat, all alone.
well i have been using it almost constantly -- doing all my piecework on it as well as whipping up some holiday gifts. i don't want my 35 year old husqvarna viking 64 40 to get lonesome, so i do detailed stitching and work that needs a free arm on the viking.
i am having a bit of a time getting used to the fact that the needle isn't centered on the pressure foot -- it is offset to the left. is this typical of a janome machine?
