There has been some secret sewing going on around here.
There has been some Quiltville mystery sewing too.
I love making 4 patches and think I've made oodles of them.
Saturday morning I sewed and sewed.
Pressed, matched pairs, sliced and sewed and pressed again.
I counted and pinned.
I was so excited thinking I needed 80, had 50, remembered I need 120.
Yes, that's a little peak inside my head.
It's a happy place.
(Yes, I know there are words on that selvage edge.
The woven edge is cut off and the words are in the seam line.
Even if they showed a bit, I'm just fine with that.
Gives it a bit of character.)
So I cut some more strips.
It was a busy weekend with meat processing, canning and grandchildren.
Not a bad way to spend the weekend.
Today I'll sew.
Sometimes a girl needs brand new and shiny.
My love of vintage machines has not wavered but
I like a good electronic machine
and this little gem was on an excellent sale.
And she was screaming at me to give her a home.
So I did.
I had to test her out on my 4 patches.
I will continue to use my vintage straight stitch only for piecing.
I will test this girl our on some machine applique and other things this week.
Monday is my favorite day of the week as I stroll around Blogland.
Time to fill up the cup and get visiting.
