However, Nashville is on the RIGHT SIDE!
What’s not to like about Nashville, TN in the spring?
Three workshops and a Lecture/Trunk Show!
Time to explore and find antique malls and quilt shops?
Reconnect with some ladies I haven’t seen in several years!
The only thing dragging me down is that my flight is wheels up at 6:53AM this morning ---so you guessed it – this post is being written ahead so I don’t have to deal with it when the alarm goes off at 4am.
Some sewing did get accomplished on a very quiet Easter Afternoon ---
I sewed a spring green binding on a very pink Atlas machine, circa 1958!
Doesn’t this shout SPRING to you?
Bright green binding on an indigo blue border? You bet!
I can’t show you the whole project because there are magazine and book plans for this one in the future –but I’ve been working with these colors for the past 6 months or so, building this quilt as leaders and enders while working on everything else as always – just working here and there a bit at a time. This is a project that has packed easily in my suitcase. Up until now!
I have a “generic” walking foot on the pink Atlas machine….and needing a 1/4” binding and finding the foot too wide to use the edge of the foot as my guide, I screwed on another little vintage goodie that came in a random box of machine feet – it’s a curved seam guide that drops down in FRONT of the foot so I can set it where I need to go!
I've found sometimes when putting on a binding that the sticky guide is not high enough to use as a fence when the quilt is thicker than the guide. I still like the sticky guide for every day all purpose piecing..but for binding and using a walking foot, this is my alternative!
Loving the 1940’s looking backing fabric!
Guess what finally showed up on my doorstep? The latest Quiltmaker May/June issue with Wild & Goosey & Part II of the Lazy Sunday Mystery in it!!
Do you see a similarity between the colors on the cover – and the snips of my quilt above?
Sometimes –the color goddesses are in synch!
Let’s have a Give-Away!
Tell me what color combos you are working with right now!
I’ll be home Friday and we will draw a winner for one copy of Quiltmaker Magazine's May/June issue on Friday Evening ---
Catch you from Nashville!
