    My step-daughter suffered a severe stroke 18 months ago. She is a quilter and would like to try quilting again. However, she only has the use of one hand. Any ideas?

    Awhile back I posted that I was looking for a pattern to yellow brick road free. Thanks to a wonderful member of the board who sent it to me I have finished the top, sandwhiched it, and its 3/4 of the way quilted. So, here it is. Thanks to the other members who helped me with all my questions in live chat. You guys helped a completely lost beginner start and sinish her first quilt that done with FMQ. I had a blast doing it and will definitely do another. Hope the pics are okay.Name:  DSC02290.JPG

  7. My childhood sewing machine

    Well, she is now clean and oiled. The cabinet is in great condition, so all I did was oil it. She is a 1917 Singer Red Eye model 66-1. Motorized by my dad, and will take a little time and effort to track down the missing parts of the treadle frame. Anyway, here she is.

    Her name is Lydia.

The back was a solid yellow and the front was a whole piece of Blue's Clues fabric. I used a varigated blue on the print side and a varigated yellow/blue on the yellow side. I did meandering on this one.

    This one turned out better than the last one. It was fun to watch the stitching on the yellow ...
