My mother is probably rolling over in her grave...
Today I found and adopted a quilt and an antique machine. The machine is marked Singer, but from I am told on the Vintage machine list on Facebook, it could be a Wheeler and Wilson that was re-dressed after Singer bought them out. I don't know if it will ever run, but for $5 I decided, like Charlie Brown, I needed bring it home and give it a little love.
The quilt I found at an antique mall in Dover, PA. I am also in the process of making a Grandmother's Flower Garden like this with the green diamond path. I wasn't sure how I was liking it, but seeing one made up it is making me want to work on it more. I took a picture of my piece next to the antique. Maybe some day someone will love mine enough to take it home from an antique mall.
The last two quilts I left behind, but I know where it is and I might try to talk Kevin in to going back to get it. I love the golden fabric the maker used in the sashing. And the border is incredible, especially at the corners. The broken star was lovely, the border was really superb.
I also left behind a white Singer Featherweight. Way out of the budget right now, but I know where it is too and who knows.... if I save my pennies......
Have a great day!
