I started quilting late in life (I'm a late bloomer") !!!
The one above is my most recent.... like last week. !!
Appliqued hearts ( hand sewn) and hand quilted. I know todays modern quilters have all sorts of quilting machines, they do everything but talk , I think they do that too !! but oddly enough that's the part I like to do by hand. Just needle, thread, and even a thimble.
There is something very relaxing and quiet about hand quilting that I enjoy. Putting the squares together is done on my Singer Featherweight. (circa 1938) It only sews forward and reverse. That's the only part done on the machine.
THAT's IT !!! It's tiny, portable and most people have it as a second machine. For me it's my one and only and I like it that way.
With my Featherweight I've pieced (sewn ) together every quilt I ever made. Here's some of them and the Featherweight that did it all !!
And Ta Da! my dear old friend, The Featherweight.
They were made by the Singer company. BJ
