L - 1 Widow's Pane

Each week the Dear Jane internet list posts a Block of the Week, or BOW. This week's BOW was L-1 Widow's Pane. There are a couple of corners that don't line up exactly, so I may yet take out one seam and redo it. But, for now it's done! I got this piece of fabric from Carol, one of my fellow London Friendship Quilt Guild members. It's Dutch fabric!

I had to test a Singer 99 handcrank for my husband as he had serviced it so this is the machine I used to paper piece this block. It sewed like a dream!

If you're wondering about hydro on a handcranked machine, Jake installed a light on it :-).

Hi Jacqui! Greetings from Denmark! I have a couple of these lovely machines! Only one with an intact case, though! :o(
Your block is beautiful, BTW!
Please don't redo it!

What a beauty :) Both the block and machine :) One of these days I'll make some effort to get my handcrank working :))
