A Finish




Just finished this little doll quilt today. The binding was sewn on using my Featherweight which has, in the past, presented a tension problem. Being in a hurry, I thought I would try again instead of getting out another sewing machine. By loosening the tension just a bit, I was able to sew with no difficulty. A size 14 needle was in the machine for paper piecing - yes, I'm still at it! - and it worked out just fine.
Now I'm off to Texas for the wedding of daughter #2 (of 2). We are spending one night, after the wedding, in San Antonio, so I hope to have a report of a quilt store there called Las Colchas. Their website says that they specialize in reproduction fabrics so I plan to take a look!
As you can see, I'm having trouble with my posting - everything looks as I want it to, and then, when I publish the post, it has a mind of it's own. I'll work on a remedy when I return; sorry!

Too bad you're not going to be here a little longer. There's a fantastic quilt shop north of San Antonio is Waxahachie called Common Threads that specializes in reproduction prints...and there are several other great shops in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Have a great time at the wedding and don't our current heatwave get to ya!

I always have to do my binding by hand. I can never get it right when I do it by machine. Good thing I enjoy it. Have fun at the wedding and the quilt shop.

Adorable little quilt! Enjoy that wedding and hopefully there will be some fabrics calling your name at the quilt store!

Las Colchas is a lovely little store- a bit difficult to locate, but with the wonders of modern SatNav you shouldn't have any problem.
Hope it's a lovely wedding and that it isn't outdoors in this heat!
