This is the machine I learned to sew on. :)
So when I saw all of the scraps in the drawer, from the 80's and 90's, and a few from the 60's and 70's when my mom used to sew a lot of clothes..
..I thought it'd be fun to sew some of them together.. so I took this stack of rectangles and just started sewing them end to end. For lack of a better plan.
And before long I was swimming in a long string of rectangles..
But finally I had sewn them all together, end to end, and I'm pretty sure they would have reached all the way around the house!
I had to roll them around an old spool of thread to keep them organized and from knotting up..
My mom and I layed them out on her bed last night and cut them to length to make a queen size scrap quilt.
Now they are waiting to be sewn together in groups of three, two of them are done, and there will be eight.
They will be sewn alternately with rows of yellow in between.. kind of like this..
So hopefully before we have to leave, it will be a queen size quilt top.
Still having a good time, may get to go and visit my cousin and her family on her farm, near here later this evening. Word has it that they have a baby calf that they are bottle feeding right now. *swoon*.. I think A would really like that.. and if not I will I'm sure. I am missing my big furry beast of a dog right about now! Having Buster withdrawals.
Hope you all have a great week ahead!!! Thanks for coming by!
Oh My Gosh! Your mother has a 'rocketeer' sewing machine. That is a great machine. I'm hoping to get one, one of these days. Glad you are getting some sewing in. Hope the calf was as cute as it sounds. I used to love playing with the calves at my grandfathers place.
