Card Tricks Update

Progress has been slow on the Card Tricks Revolt, but I only have to sew triangles for two more corners.

012314   (1024x992)One of the reasons that I haven’t moved faster on the remaining triangles is because I still haven’t decided about the borders.  Right now the top choice is an inner border of the four colors and a solid black outer border with log cabin cornerstones.  Who knows by morning I may have a different plan.

I have a wonderful new addition to my sewing room to share –

012314B  (1024x783)Yep, I have been adopted by a Singer Featherweight.  It was manufactured in 1955 and has barely been used.  A quilt guild member mentioned that she had one to sell and I immediately volunteered to give it a good home.  Since it had sat in a closet for 10 years, I have in the shop for a check-up.

Next week I will be celebrating a 3rd birthday with my youngest granddaughter, so the final border decision will not be made until February.
