I’ve been busy with lots of things, but am still trying to make some 12 X 12 blocks each month, I make one duplicate for my quilt guild exchange each month.
For February I sewed these pieced heart blocks. Each has 52 red or pink 1 1/2 ” squares.
I repainted and reorganized my pegboard for tools and added a second one for my thread. I have not decided yet if I should draw outlines for tool positions like my last board. It worked nice for a quick glance to let me know what I had not put away when done. The thread board is covered with heavy vinyl to keep dust off the threads. It is anchored on the shelf. For easy access I slit the vinyl about every four inches. I also took down shelves and moved them and removed all the old teddy bears.
Today I tried out a lot of vintage sewing machines. Some worked very well and others needed some work. I finally settled on a Singer 500a machine. It is a slant needle Machine and sews very well.
This machine will stay in my car so I can have a machine for on the go. The second machine is a Brother Festival 451. It is a great machine for straight sewing and zigzag. It is a machine that was built to last. This machine I am getting for my daughter-in -law. Here is a picture of this bright pink machine.
