    Made for my son. The idea started with the yellow center mandala and grew from there.

    The mandala is a pattern called Almaaz, I bought it from eQuiltpatterns. Paper pieced and way easier than it looks!

    The pattern came in a book kit that I bought on clearance at Books a Million for 8 bucks for my son. He made the Ohio Star pillow and was done with sewing.

    I am afraid my camera is unfair with regard to color!
    Decided to go ahead and blog this as well as further projects.

    The purple squares are denim with cotton and the blue squares are sort of a harlequin check, blue on blue. I was unhappy with the blue squares plain so machine appliqued the small squares onto them.

    I bought a spool of ...

    Too busy for a lot of quilting until Tuesday (sigh). Tomorrow we have a tour bus with 55 people stopping by at 9:30 AM To add to their viewing pleasure, they will get to see some machine appliqued quilts in progress and finished; then a how to make bowl warmers. This will be between seeing the exhibit and shopping in the museum store. It should be a blast!

  7. White Rotary Sewing Machine

    by , 09-21-2012 at 08:27 PM
    I bought this at a yard sale this week - $40 - I fell in love with the machine and cabinet and just had to have it ... it runs, a little noisy, but a beautiful stitch.

    I want to learn how to make it run better and rejuvinate the cabinet - don't want to strip and refinish as much as make it look better.
