    What a lovely gift! It's nice to see such a happy expression when you give something special.

    I like that even the inside is scrappy. Great job!

    I do mostly straight line quilting too, trying to make myself more comfortable with FMQ. I really like the border/backing fabric on your table runner too!
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Bennett;
    Thanks. Aunt May loved it and insisted that a picture of her and the quilt be taken and she wanted a good picture of her not just any old picture. Chris

    No wonder you made a gorgeous quilt for that delightful lady!!!

    My Mock Cathedral Window Quilt. Made with used jean material, and leftover fabrics and batting from previous quilt projects. Decorative stitching from my Singer 224, piecing from Singer 201, and binding Davis NVF.

    So much variety on here - I love them all!

    Monica - I'm very impressed with the curved seams on the colour wheel, and such lovely restful colours on the mock cathedral window quilt

    Candace - gorgeous bag - Special occasions only, surely!

    Charlee - your doll definitely has an inbuilt corset. What's her waist measurement, two and a half inches?

    Chris - Aunt May's smile says it all. What a beautiful present you made for her.

    I love your sewing machine. Thank you for including the blog site. I have been wanting to make one for my sewing room. The scissors really are cute too.

    Also, your mock cathedral windows hammock looks very inviting.

    I love the colors of your table runner. It looks so soft.
