    Just had to tell you all that she won 2nd place in her class of quilts. I am so proud of her and she is happy too. Her quilt is on page 6.
    Crosstitcher, congrats to your GD and her win. Have her keep up the good work.

    Three different looks from one reversible sewing machine cover.
    This is my first test run. I went through some of my scraps to find strips that I could use in a reversible machine cover. This one is just a bit shorter than what I wanted. So, the cover just drapes over the machine. I'm liking this look of draping for the vintage machine since the hand-wheel is rather large. The little machine on the cover is a button that I found at JoAnn's. Cover was made using my Standard Rotary, and decorative stitching was done on Singer 328K in treadle.

    I'm loving it Monica, will this be your TOGA project? Or will that project come after the TOGA? Too many questions, how about me letting you get to work. Enjoy the TOGA.

    I was thinking that this would be a possible choice for the TOGA project. I have an idea for the project to be a quick reversible sewing cover using a couple of the exchange blocks.

    At the gathering, some folks like to exchange blocks made from their different machines. These blocks are used to make a quilt. Some folks only get around to collecting blocks and aren't into making a quilt. I have been thinking of a quick, easy (painless) project for those folks. The idea is to use a couple of their blocks at least in one project. Thinking this will make a fun project. Now need to make test.

    Hello Monica, I've been looking at your machine cover - very pretty.

    You might find this French site interesting http://www.lamachineacoudre.net If you look at the section about the Singer 99K you will see the cover she made for a machine that came without its wooden cover. If you click on the link at the right you will be taken to the instructions, which gives the dimensions on a diagram. Also she shows how she has made a cosy for the folding part of the bed of a Featherweight. It's the last item in her section about Featherweights.

    I made a cover out of furnishing cotton a few months ago, rectangular box shaped, with struts of wooden dowling to keep it upright. It has a tendency to wobble out of shape a bit. I need to work out a better design, and now you have given me the idea of using blocks...there are a few stray blocks hiding somewhere...

    Thanks for sending this link. She has some awesome machines! I love the cosy she made for the folding part of the FW bed, and her cover for her Singer 99K has cute fabric.
    It is always fun to see what others have done!

    I sew everything on my Singer 301 that my grandmother gave me 11 years ago. It's the only machine I have, and I love it. I hope it lasts me a good long time!

    Kristin, they say, 'if you be good to it, then it will be good to you.' Take care and enjoy.
