My next project was that I had to make a cover for my Featherweight. My husband got it for me for Christmas and I have been so busy using it and having fun, that I decided it needed attention too.
I made an appliqué for the front:
I decided to put a pocket on the side, to keep my sissors with it.
Also, I wanted it kinda stiff so it would cover it and not lean on it.
I even added a little handle for the top take it on and off my machine.
I love using it....makes me feel like I am playing with a toy.
Speaking of toys, he got me one for my birthday, (made in a 1919)....
Isn't it adorable? It even works. (I know what I want to collect.)
After I got my cover done, I did some cleaning and organizing in my room.
I added small spools of thread to a jar,
Some buttons on other jars,
I even made a new ironing board cover:
Now I am ready to cut my next quilt out. I have all the fabric and my pattern in a basket all ready to go.
My next quilt is going to be a black and white Log Cabin with bright stars appliqued in the center.
And here is my boss, KC. She was just so exhausted when I got done.
(Don't she look mad? It's like I bothered her, taking her picture, lol)
I hope I did not bore you too much with my room. I would live to see where YOU quilt!
Till next time....
HAPPY QUILTING EVERYONE!!!!
