[This quilt is absolutely gorgeous]
While reading a recent blog for turning an ironing board around to press fabric, I had an idea for a wider, squared off ironing board that could be left up in my sewing room. Why not cut a piece of pressed board to the desired size and bolt it onto a metal ironing board. Pad it with cotton batting, several layers and cover with any kind of 100% cotton fabric you want. A $40 board for just pennies. I will let you know how this all worked out. Thank heavens for ideas and DH to do the cutting.
Look what I found at a Garage Sale. I don't know anything about the old Singer Machines. So if anyone could help me out on this I would appreciate it. The serial number on the machine is AE060247. I do know that it was manufactured somewhere around 1935. I also believe this is the original cabinet. I am missing the cord, but the gentleman I purchased it from is still looking for it.

I was planning to make all the graduating neighbor kids quilts for their graduation. I made one this year and others in the future, but when my son got a card from two of the neighbors, they just put $5.00 in for him. Is it worth it to reward their children when the neighbors aren't as giving?? Should I just make a quilt for my graduating child and give the neighbors $5? Opinions please?

I used a tutorial found here: http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2...vin-on-up.html
It was a quick and easy assembly. I quilted it on my Juki using my walking foot to create some straight line
