And with it being over 100 degrees and humid as all get-out in Monroe ---where better to be than in the air-conditioned comfort of a great work space sewing away with a great group of quilters?
This is Susanne – and I bonded with her right off due to her lovely pink featherweight, Candy!
Yes – Candy even gets her own name tag! LOL!
And doesn’t Susanne just look HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY to be here? We all were.
Rectangle Wrangle is found in my book Scraps & Shirttails II – and is probably my favorite of all the quilts in the book. The border of Ohio Stars was an afterthought --- because once I had the quilt top together and tried it on the bed, it was way too murky and dark --- the stars MAKE the quilt for me…besides, I love 6” blocks, don’t you?
There were lots of featherweights humming away in class, and a couple of 301s as well! But look at THIS beauty --- it’s a Black side featherweight…made during the WWII era when chromium was not as available for machine parts and a black finish was given instead….I don’t find black side featherweights very often..so this was a treat to see!

Today we do it again with a Tulip Fields workshop, and we will be string piecing the day away which promises to be a whole load of fun!
Two days left of June -- what are YOU going to do with it??
