Should I sell it?

Isn't this one of the cutest featherweight machines you've ever seen?  I have had it for a number of years and haven't used it.  Can you believe that?  I don't know why...every once in a while I'll pull it out and run it but that's it.  Maybe I'm's so sweet, I love the size, and I just don't want to ruin it.  So today it goes into the Estate Barn Show I'm having at our house.  Hopefully someone else will love it like I do.

Minick & Simpson again

Here are five more blocks I have finished as I work on the Spirit of Sacajawea quilt.

I did the horses to look like my pinto.

I haven't decided if I like the middle on this block.  What do you think?


In the fall my friend Laurel noticed I pinned The Spirit of Sacagawea quilt to my quilt board on Pinterest.  She then emailed and asked me if this was a quilt we could each make and have sewing time together.  I answered "OK" because I love being with her, she is such fun and a great encourager!!!  We decided we would pick two blocks a month, one applique and one pieced.  If you look at the book by Simpson & Minick they did the entire quilt in red, white & blue.  I just couldn't sew a blue leaf on my quilt or a red horse, so we both decided we would choose our own colors.  Did I get myself into trouble?  Here's what I've sewn so far, with a couple more I haven't taken pictures of yet.  Please check out Laurel's blog to see her blocks.


I love the show Sarah's house on HGTV.  She's a home decorator from Canada and boy does she make a home gorgeous!  On season 3 she did a farm house and when she got to the guest room I fell in love with this simple two colored quilt.  I thought, I'll graft it out and sew one for the foot of my bed.  It took me two tries to get it right, just two blocks with a sash.
And here's mine.  I cut the strips 2  1/2" wide.
