A Few Days Away from my Machine...

My husband and I are excited about attending his family reunion. Not only do I want to visit with family, but I'll be on the hunt for quilt shops to tour!

Happy quilting until I return to share my finds!

I accidentally removed a comment. so I am going to paste it here so that you may see it. Then in my reply I misspelled the name Meylonie. So sorry!!!


I don't know anything about blogging but had to respond to your post on Leah Day's blog. I've been quilting for 20 years and am absolutely amazed at your talent and courage! Lovely Lou is beautiful and your quilted feathers are wonderful! I can't believe you started your FMQ with feathers! And on a little featherweight no less! I too love my little featherweight but never thought to try FMQ on it. Who would have thought. Mine was made in the exact month and year I was born but unlike yours wasn't bought by my mother, although she was a very accomplished seamstress.

Anyway, Good for you and congratulations on your accomplishment. Keep up your good work.

I love Leah also!

    1. Melanie,

      Thank you for commenting on Lou, I have really enjoyed this quilt. Previously I have quilted a queen size with a walking foot on the featherweight. It was the hardest thing I had ever done. I did as my quilting friends told me by rolling it--wrong thing to do! I hated every minute of it. The harp space is so small on the featherweight, but using Leah's puddling method, I have not even noticed the small space.

      How cool is the fact that our featherweights are the same age as we are? I really love my little machine!
