Featherweight delights

We’re over in the new house for this part of the holiday week, so stitching is on the Featherweight.


A forgotten Moda layer cake pack, Lush uptown, too lovely to cut up, is going to be stitched together and backed with an old Witney blanket.  Very apt, as we are now living about 10 miles from Witney.

The Featherweight pressure foot has a very narrow allowance, probably about eighth of an inch, so I am using a more modern invention of a pad of Post-its to get to a consistent, quarter inch seam allowance.  I love this little machine for so many reasons, one of which is the smell of the machine when the light is on. Bizarre, as I don’t recall it from my childhood, but it is hidden in my brain somewhere.




I am so enamoured of the colour chart dots in this pack, it is the main reason why I don’t want to cut in to these squares.


The forecast for the weekend is rain,so garden renovation will be on hold while I enjoy myself joining the squares and working out what some of the attachments are for.

  1. You need to snuggle under that fab quilt while to try and figure out the feet - good luck!!!!
