This week I have fabrics from GirlCharlee.com!
My one stop shop for knits.
Tossed pineapple in white cotton.
And gold pin dots on aqua blue. The color is more of a minty blue. Really nice.
The gold pin is chiffon.
Ive never worked with chiffon before.
It is fun to say. Chiffon. Chiffon. Chiffon.
And gold dots!
Clearly my priorities are in order.
Any advice or any thoughts about what goes good with chiffon?
Some fabrics have the best selvage.
Enchant by Cinderberry Stitches for Riley Blake designs is one of those fabrics.
Im slowing cutting through this fabrics and the rest of wee wander for a chevron &on quilt.
Swoon some more.
I was able to pick up two new to me antique sewing machines this past weekend.
I was able to get them from my parents. They have become quiet the collectors of antiques.
This is a Singer 99-23 or 99-24. She was made in 1941 and is a blackside model.
The finish is a crinkle finish. A black crinkle finish. Also called Godzilla finish.
I really like my Godzilla machine. She seems to run fine. Needs some oil and a nice cleaning and should be great to use for quilts. I find her really pretty. I don’t mind the crinkle Godzilla finish.
The second machine is more of a Frankenstein monster. I wasn’t able to find out too much about it. But the machine sure is pretty.
This one is what I believe is a New Home machine. The model would be greyhound.
The motor is Westinghouse. Maybe is was made in or before 1920?
The belt is broken and I have two feet pedals and Im not sure which one would work.
Sure is pretty though! Makes for nice decoration.
I also got lots and lots of attachments and other fun sewing stuff.
If anyone has any advice for the machines or any history I would love to hear it!
Last Wednesday I posted my WIP Wee Wander quilt.
Today I get to post the finished quilt!
I sewed all weekend to get this baby done!
I decided to use Savanna Glow in mint by Leah Duncun.
Oh golly. It was a marriage that should be.
A marriage that would last.
I added some hand embroidery on a few of the stars. I really like this look.
I only did it on the quilt top not all of the layers.
I machine stitched around a lot of the other stars.
Some one on Instagram recommended that I use a pink binding.
I thought that idea was genius! Bright pink would pop with the green backing.
The binding sewed up quickly and bam! I was done with the quilt.
Cotton &Steel Basics!
I love the story that goes with this company and I swoon over all the ladies and their designs.
This fabric is Auh- Mazing!
I love every single piece. I hope to get my little hands on some of the prints!
Mustangs for sure!
I ordered these from FatQuarterShop.
The shipping was cheap and the delivery was fast!
A lot faster than I thought since everything was pre order.
