There were some old quilt tops to explore. The lone star diamonds were hand stitched but the setting triangles were machine pieced. odd
This was an interesting Minnesota sewing machine with stamped cast iron body. It was in a martha washington cabinet which took a little finesse to open it. Husband to the rescue.
I have a finish to share. I long armed it and was very annoyed with the quilter who pieced it ( me) the borders were difficult. So that's it. Next year I am concentrating on squaring up the borders better, so my longarmer ( me) doesn't get fussy.
I love the stripe for a binding.

I love the comments about your quilter and long-armer. It's good when we can laugh at ourselves.ReplyDelete
good topic thanks for post for sharing on website ..ReplyDelete
Hey, that stripe *is* really great as the binding. I can completely relate to the dual personality of a full-spectrum quilter! Hehe :DReplyDelete
