It’s December 1st! How did that happen?? Goodness Sakes!
And for those in Australia, It’s the 2nd. So I am not complaining – they are always one day ahead of the day I am just ending.
I love how that is!

All ready to sew with you on Quiltcam tonight. I just need to grab the IPad and I am ready to continue on with the first clue.
I only have about half of them left. I completed all of the half square triangles , now to assemble the blocks. I am using my Black 301 since it is the one I used for Celtic Soltace and now it is the traditional machine for the Winter mystery Quilt.
My black machine currently does not have a name, maybe your Quiltcam viewers can help me name her? See you soon!So, does anyone have a name suggestion for Diana? Leave your answer in the comments section below!
It’s also been a busy day here in Quiltville for many reasons ((Besides the bone density scan, the haircut, the lunch out, the mammogram and Quilt-Cam tonight –))
I’ve got a SUPER CYBER SALE going on over at my Quiltville Book Store. 20% off EVERYTHING in stock, even seam guide rulers! Flat rate shipping for orders under $100 and Free shipping in the USA for orders over $100.
This offer is only good for a week – it Ends next Sunday evening, Dec 7th – so don’t wait too long! Click HERE for more details!
But amidst everything else…I’m ready to SEW! I also did some rearranging in the studio….I was thinking of how we really haven’t had the treadle machine going during Quilt-Cam, so I moved some cabinets around and voila!
We are treadling tonight!
This is my 1920s Singer 127. She’s got a bullet shuttle/bobbin and if she happens to run out of thread during Quilt-Cam I’ll show you ((albeit poorly!)) how these little gems wind….it sure gives your thighs a work out.
Which reminds me…my fitbit is going on my SHOE tonight! Treadle steps count!
And I took time to fix my inside out unit!
When I first pieced this, it was in a hurry – I was finishing the post, and rushing to go get my dad at the airport last Monday before heading to the cabin for Thanksgiving – and I sewed the pink triangles to the inside instead of the aqua ones – an easy mistake, but I should have known better because the GRAPHIC was right..my sample block was wrong. How is it that sometimes we just have stared at something so long, that we don’t see it?
Hopefully everyone caught my updated post FIXING the issue ---Part 1 for Grand Illusion should look just like THIS above.

Yes, I’m still working on those baby quilts ----
