I've been a little cranky . . .


Crank, crank, crank . . . I'm in love with my Singer 99. This gal is 82 years old, (the machine, not ME!)  She sews amazing.  The quiet is mesmerizing.

The sewing began on Friday. 


I picked up this quilt fabric at the guild meeting last week. It was already cut into strips.  After I made it, I thought hey, piece of cake.  

So I dug into my fabric bins (yes I have more than one tote of fabric) and came up with the following: 


This didn't photograph near as pretty as it really is. The border fabric is tiny black and white hounds tooth print. I remember buying this butterfly fabric. I sent a fat quarter to my friend Cathy in Australia years ago. 


My friend Maggie gave me this map print along with yards of coordinating fabric. All I had to do was sew the border on. 


This kitten fabric was used to make a table runner for my cousin Dixie.

Four quilts in 3 days, one crank at a time. 

The top quilt is a donation for foster babies. I'm not sure what I'll do with the other ones.  First they will all have to be machine quilted.

It's all in a day or two of cranking!
