This blog is intended as a bulletin board to show the quilts I've been making on my vintage and treadle sewing machines. My husband and I collect antique and vintage sewing machines and I use them to make all my quilts. Here are some of the results.

Grayson's baby quilt
Another first baby was born to Lynnette and Joel in July. I finally got the quilt finished a few weeks ago and delivered it this past week. This quilt is a One Block Wonder quilt and the fabric was a print with funky bugs all over it. It was so much fun to work on. Arranging the hexagons on the design wall is always enjoyable. I made a bunch of solid cubes to match the colours in the quilt and tried a few layouts:
I settled on these stepping stones so it looks like stones in a garden:
The finished quilt:
I quilted a meander in the bugs and loops in the blue border:
I found the perfect bug print for the binding and the backing of the quilt:
Some of the hexagons in the quilt:
Even if you'd be having a bad hair day, one look at these bugs would brighten your day :-). Hope baby Grayson enjoys many a giggle, checking out his bug quilt.
