This is me, this afternoon! Celebrating a successful dentist check up and cleaning with no cavities and a crown that is still “Hanging on!”
This is all good stuff, and I was out of there in a flash ---and home again to get this binding on so I can take this project to Quilt Villa tomorrow for night-time hand stitching!
I wish I could show you the whole thing, but this project is slated for a future Quiltmaker Magazine issue and you’ll just have to wait until then to see it. I know you are going to love it as much as I do!
It uses a ton of scraps, loads of strips, oodles of fun!
The machine of the day was my 1950s Wizard, made by Brother in Japan. You can see I've got a straight stitch walking foot on the machine..
I also took time to attach a corner label, and a hanging sleeve.
See the sticky seam guide out in FRONT of the walking foot? I want a 1/4" binding and the foot is wider than that, so this is in place to be my guide for the job:
Striped chambray – and just enough!
Funny enough – I’ve used this piece of gifted yardage for hanging sleeves in the past. Click HERE for my article on applying bindings and hanging sleeves. This will be the LAST quilt with this fabric as a hanging sleeve..it’s all used up now!
Back to the Yellow Spider Webs!
Sewing on my copper & forest green metallic HOUSEHOLD machine, circa 1950s!
Spider Webs just seem like an October thing to do. And I am done with my geese strips, and at a stand still with the Box Kite blocks until I lay them out and decide if I’m going to go bigger. If I do, I need to cut more. Another cabin project for this weekend!
You'll find the free pattern for String Spider Web under the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog.
