~ What's In A Number ~

~1952~



The year my Singer Featherweight was born. This beauty was a Christmas present from my sister last year. Although I haven't had much time to get to know her, I am hoping to spend some quality time with her during Summer break.


~ 1600 ~




The number of inches of fabric in each of these fun to make quilts. I loved making these quilts (once I got over the guilt of how easy and quick they were to make). A simple design, but each one has such a different look. And simply adding borders, like the one made by Rene', adds another look to the quilt.




Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog!

    It is amazing how much machines have changed in the last 70 years. Isn't it nice to have a machine that is not plastic. The 1600 quilts are so unique. I hope that you continue to enjoy your summer break.

  2. I love these two 1600 quilts you made!!! Isn't it great how each 1600 quilt has it's own unique look?! I forgot who you made the second one for. Did I tell you my Featherweight now has a name? Are you bringing Adele to the retreat? Maybe Adele and Ruby can play together ;-)

    1. I think Ruby and Adele would have a great time playing together, just like their Moms ;-) But Adele will probably have to wait until next year's retreat. I don't think her mom would be able to handle the stress of learning a "new" machine while retreating!

  3. Love your new little machine! I got one this year, too! I really love mine. I think you'll love yours too!

  4. Is this the jelly roll race? I have that on my list to make and I think my little quilt group might do that. Looks so nice and sounds like fun to do!
