    Nice job! And see how all those corners match. I'm getting more interested in joining in. Especially if mine would come out as well. Are you going to sash each group of 16, or have you gotten that far yet :?:

    Yes on sashingbetween each 16. I plan on a different color [solid] between, and black or white across under each row.

    Ruth your Singer looks like the one of my grandmother's that my sister still uses. Do you put different disks inthe top to make fancy stitches? BTW, like your quilt.

    Ruth,
    It looks like you're having way too much fun.

    Yes, That is the famous Singer slant needle 401A. It has built in stitches as well as cams, It has a buttonholer and I have a monogrammer. It is very heavy all metal. I t 's great for machine quilting, If I could only do it.
    It came out in the 50's. My grams was my 1926 Singer. I can't say no to a singer they want to sell for under $5; :D They need a good home.

    Hi Norah, I love your pic of the good looking man and I assume thats you. You both look happy. To swap ,pm as many people as posted and exchange snail address and then 25 squares
    I really enjoy sewing these squares, I think it is the variety. I do have to fight the urge to try to match colors. I pick them from my lap without looking. I may want to make more of these. This one is going on my bed. I am thinking on how to quilt it........Maybe sections?

    since you plan to sash between blocks, i'd suggest you pick a different quilting motif for each block and for the sashes around them to carry over the theme of all the random patches.

    Hi Ruth is there a special trick to uploading some pictures onto this site. I've tried a couple of times but nothing happens.

    Any tips

After a sweet lady from North Carolina mailed some scrappy cloth to finish a quilt for a new grandson, I did not mail anything back to her. Was I supposed to or was that a pure gift? How can I know? I do not hear from her anymore.
    GramMER to eighteen, plus two great-granddaughters and four adopted greats soon we hope!
