    Cut your 2 squares the height of your finished block plus 1/2 " - so, 2 1/4" in your case. Cut the rectangle the finished width plus 1/2" - so 4" in your case.
    So you need to cut two 2 1/4" squares of your background colour, and one 2 1/4 x 4" rectangle of your goose colour.

  4. Do You FMQ Feathers? HELP!

If you are fairly decent at quilting feathers (FMQ, freehand, not with a longarm pattern) would you PLEASE post pics of your feather quilting here? I need some inspiration! And apparently, lots more practice.

  6. Determined To Finish!

    by , 01-20-2013 at 05:03 PM
    I have recently pulled my Cathedral Window back out. Life happens and other projects took over my time. My goal is to finish this before I allow myself to start another project. Having a "Fold/Iron" marathon until all needed to finish is complete, then I will go from there. With this concept, I am hoping it will feel like I am moving faster, lol. Is there anyone else working on a CW at the moment?

  7. Climax Kate's Fate

    by , 01-20-2013 at 10:51 AM
    Kate makes a beautiful stitch and is extremely easy to treadle. But, Lordy is she noisy!! When compared to a National VS and early White VS, the shuttle is a rattle trap. As a result, I am not sewing with it anymore.

  8. questions about these singers

I think that top one looks like an old Wilcox and Gibbs, but I never worked on them when I was in the shop-they were just too far and few for me.
    Thanks, I thought the top one was a W & G but have never seen one with a motor.
