As I was organizing my projects for the New Year, I happened upon my nine-patch quilt. Pieced by hand, a little over five years ago, and patiently waiting its turn to be hand quilted. I love the simplicity of the nine-patch block and would say it is one of my favourites. The border fabric added a bit of elegance to this uncomplicated block.
Being without a sewing machine got me thinking about my grandmother's Singer 301, manufactured in 1956, and last used by my mother almost six years ago. Weighing about five pounds more then the Singer Featherweight 221 and is referred to as the featherweight's big sister. All that is required now is a little TLC (a good cleaning and oiling) and then I can take her for a spin.
Until next time.....happy quilting!
