My love for sewing started, as a little girl, with my Grandmother.
We made gingham serving aprons for the church ladies.
I love my A-1 machine.

I enjoy working from the front of the machine quilting freehand.
AND I Love Old Quilt Tops!
I feel every top I buy is a piece of lost history.
Lost is the name of the maker and what her intentions were.
Why wasn't she able to finish it? Who packed it away?
I purchase quilt tops anywhere I can find them
I make the necessary repairs and then find the perfect backing fabric.
After quilting and hand stitching the binding, I machine wash in cold water.
Then machine dry on warm, giving the quilt the vintage "wrinkled" look.
Can you imagine how happy the piecer would be to see her quilt finished?
