    My first block with Miss Dorothy!

    I recently joined a BOM (late) and decided to make my blocks with my "new" White Rotary treadle. I decided to make the most simple blocks I could so I can just get the feel of my machine. So here is my March block.

    4" squares ..... Hmmmm. That looks pretty good. What size hem are you using?

    And how does Miss Dorothy sew? I only ask this cos I have three running treadles and no two of them feel any where similar.

    Oh, and this obviously a dumb question .... where / what is the BOM you mentioned?

    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Is almost 1:00 am and I'm still up! I am thinking of doing the same thing I'm going to try some blocks with my singer 99k for the first time, got her from e-bay and I think she is really cute my very first vintage baby. I'm gonna copy your pretty squares.

    Looks like Miss Dorothy sews well.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.
