This afternoon DH called me from an estate sale-he found two vintage sewing machines. One was a Singer 15-91 and the other was a treadle. I was really interested in the treadle but it was seriously rusty. This one caught my eye though-look that that lovely art deco style! The veneer is in terrible shape-they obviously used it as a plant stand and didn't protect the wood-even the back of the desk is messed up. DH, however, thinks he can fix it up. The little drawer on the left hand side actually has a pen tray and the original glass inkwell! How could I not love this? The stool is original as well and opens up for storage. The serial number indicates it's from 1949.
This one isn't mine-I just grabbed it off someone's blog but see how beautiful it could be?
So Susie may have been onto something! This doesn't look bad at all. It currently measures 87 x 58 as it lies in pieces. When sewn together it will be a bit smaller. I may do a stop border to go next to the binding. So my goal now is to make all the blocks I will need-seven maybe?
It's a finished top. Well, I say finished. I'm going to have to shorten the top and bottom borders-I think they are too long to fit the batting! I bought a twin size batting on sale for this quilt. Still need to make the back and then I can send if off to Karen the Quilter.
