Allietare Done


I am done!!!!  Well the top is done and the quilting room is too cold to finish it now, maybe in the spring I'll get the quilting done.  I did make some changes, it's smaller, only twin size.  No real gray or black in quantity enough to be scrappy.  BUT I did have a lot of blues about the value of the gray so used those.   Found a really dark shaded green for the black and used it for the constant.

Allietare Quilt Link Up 12/14/15 - all three clues

I do not have a gray stash to really speak of but I do have lots of blues thus the change to blue and to the fact that I didn't not use just one constant.

My blacks are very limited so here is the dark green constant that I am using instead of a gray constant. 

Forgot to include the cream rectangles but those are also cut. 
I am doing 3/4 of the clues as I want a twin sized quilt. 
Check out Bonnie Hunter's blog for more pictures of the clues so far.

Beaver Camp Projects


This is Bonnie Hunter's Blue Ridge Beauty done in browns and creams.  It was only the blocks when I arrived at camp.  It's twin size now, think I will bind with a dark brown.



This is Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Crossroads mystery quilt.  The rows were sewn but I had to piece all the setting triangles at camp and then sew all together.  Will be twin size when the borders are added. 

 
A very OLD UFO that was just cut, only lap size. 
 
All in all lots of progress at camp.

Singer 15 Clone


This machine was given to me for birthday/Christmas present I think in 1955, it was the year I was in 7th grade taking home economics.  It's badged Ambassador but the book that came with it was for a Modern machine.  All bits seemed the same and it worked very well for many years.  Was set aside for maybe twenty years.  Didn't realize it was so dirty!!!!


This is the front of the machine, didn't take a back picture.  Everything is original to the machine but I might have purchased a new motor and foot petal, not sure on that.
If you can give any info on the machine I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks!!!!

New Purchase

This is my new purchase, can you tell me what model she is???  Thought it was a 66 but the stitch length is not the same as my red eye. 

These are the decals on the bed of the machine, there is some red in there and in the flowers

Faceplate and the tensioner is in a different place from the red eye also.

I'm sorry but I forgot to turn these first and the blog won't let me delete them and get the correct ones.  But you can see the bobbin winder and the stitch length indicator.  There are no numbers by the stitch length screw. 
I want to buy some parts for this machine but until I know what it is I can't get them.  It was electric but I want to convert it to a hand crank.  Thanks for your help!!!!

Graduation Quilt Ideas



Please let me know if these fabric will work for your quilt.  The gray and cream would be the constant with the green and gold being scrappy.
