The next one, St. Patty's wall hanging is all made on the serger except for the binding.

    My name is Brenda and I am totally new to this board and to quilting. I have started me a quilt but I started it last year. I nearly have the quilt top done but I like quilting the backing to it. I am making it for my mom she is 83 yrs. young. I take care of her 24 seven and I love it. We get our hair done together and we go shopping together. She is a real blessing to me. I am married I've been married for 17 years and if I had it to do over again I would stay single

    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

  10. My childhood sewing machine

    by , 04-15-2012 at 09:15 PM (The Roaming Quilter)
    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.
