I can not believe that I am actually making a quilt for myself to use at re-enactments.
I went through my stash of fabric from making dresses and seen what fabric that I have left to make a quilt, most pieces were too small to use. I did find some fabric, then I had to get a way to cut the fabric into nice squares. I did buy some squares to add some variety to the squares.
So I am looking at these squares, I decided to use 4" squares to make my first quilt. Which sort of works out

The third quilt I made for my daughter
We are planning a trip to Charlotte and would love to travel around to some quilt shops in the area, any suggestions!

I've emailed JoGoodman, the designer, and she says she wants to post my quilt photo and instructions on her blog. Here's a preview.

I have a Janome MC6600 and need a second machine. I do a lot of free motion embroidery and thread-painting......................which means if I want to just do regular stitching I have to set up the machine. Since I don't have big blocks of time to spend sewing, I hate to give up the time setting up the machine for the different sewing I do.......................
I definitely want another Janome. This will be my last machine for awhile and will give me a total of 3 machines.........
