2018 Finish-A-Long

Nine Patch Elementary project

New year. New challenge.  Here is my list of five UFOs to start the first quarter of the 2018 Finish-A-Long. First up is the easiest.  I started the 2016 Project 48 quilt two years ago.  All it needs is a binding.                             …

Janome – the Replacement

Janome 1600

While studying I apparently had time to shop for fabric and sewing machines. I’ve had my eye open for a good deal on a used Janome 1600 DBX and here she is.  A straight stitch only machine built for quilting.                           My intention …

A few months ago my husband’s cousin contacted some family members and asked if they would be interested in some quilt blocks that had been hand pieced by their grandmother, Mary Lee Anna Mize Womack (1897-1986), affectionately known as Mama Womack.  She had just enough of them to go around to all the first generation …
