The Mt. Bachelor Quilt Guild show yesterday did not disappoint! First thing I saw when I approached the park was the gorgeous Singer 99! YUP, I had to have her... that's even though I've been selling all my old machines to downsize. OOPS!! It was $89. How could I pass that up? Its original owner was there and showed me how to open the case and get the machine to work. It operates with the use of a knee lift rather than a foot pedal. I'll let you know how that goes! If nothing else, it's a beauty!!
I really wanted to share pictures of this fabulous challenge they hosted. The quilts were fantastic!!
This was my favorite in the entire show, so I'm showing you this one first. The others were pretty amazing as well.
They also had on display another "challenge" from a small group called "Blockin' Robins". Their quilts were equally amazing, I thought.
This was not part of the challenge but I loved these little birds.
Lovely quilts--thanks for sharing...hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
Congrats on the new machine. What a beauty!ReplyDelete
I think you score big with your new addition. It's a beauty! Thanks for sharing all these eye-candy quilts. I appreciate. ;^)ReplyDelete
Awesome! I love your new (old) machine...lots of fun quilts you shared, so thank you!ReplyDelete
Your "new" machine is a beauty! The first machine I learned to sew on (my Mom's) had a knee lift instead of a pedal on the floor. When I bought my first machine and it had a floor pedal I didn't think I could get use to it. I did like the knee lift though. Gorgeous quilts, what a treat to see them in person!ReplyDelete
Wow! You got a new beauty to add to your collection of machine.ReplyDelete
Love those house quilts~ okay I love all house quilts, lol. Such creativity.ReplyDelete
Your new machine is a beauty! You're a riot, I'm glad you got it.
Love all those house quilts--what a fun idea for a theme! Congrats on your new machine--she's a cutie!ReplyDelete
I don't know if I would have passed up that machine, either. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
It is fun to see the different interpretations of a theme in the challenge quilts. Lots of clever ideas!
I have a sewing machine just like yours. I grew up in Scotland just a couple of miles away from where they were made. It has a lovely stitch but the leg bar is tiresome on the leg if it's not at the right height. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
What a score on that Singer! :-) I have yet to try using a machine with a knee lift. Lovely quilts!ReplyDelete
I learned to sew on a Singer with the knee operated lever. I don't know what is easier. A foot pedal or the knee lever. Must be a foot pedal because all the machines have those nowadays.ReplyDelete
Great pix! Have fun with the 99'er!ReplyDelete
