|Don't laugh. I was out of masking tape and had to use priority tape.|
(shhhh!!! Don't tell the Post Office) lol
I sandwiched this together at home and basted it with basting spray!
|Then we came to the Sparta Hilton (hunting cabin) and I laid it on my bed |
just like Granny used to do.
|Then I rolled it up just like Granny taught me!|
|I got my little featherweight sewing machine out |
and fixed my chair to lay my rolled quilt on just like Granny showed me.
I remember pulling that little chair in for Granny so many times.
|I haven't brought my Singer 401 A to the Sparta yet.|
But I will, because this little jewel can't handle what I need to do.
It is good for piecing but to quilt a big king size quilt is hard.
|So I am finally working on it, thanks to the encouragement|
of Heidi and Bobbi as they host the Friday Night Sew In!
|I worked on this while "Sweet Hunter" was out hunting.|
I had supper waiting when he got in and had this all put up by the time he came in.
|He saw the little feather weight out and asked me what I was sewing.|
I told him that I was just playing around with it.
Then I got back to crocheting my dish cloths.
I want this to be a surprise for Christmas.
This is not a fancy quilt but it is a quilt that he asked for.
A deer quilt for the Sparta Hilton!
Every time I sew, I remember Granny's favorite Bible verse.
I will never forget her holding her little heart and telling me that it will be in her heart forever.
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me".
You have got to go check out what my Sweet Mother is working on for the FNSI!!!
