Ancient and modern

I’ve been sewing on the Singer Featherweight.  

Years of sewing on a flatbed,curtesy of a Horn cabinet, have made me value how less physically taxing it is to sew for extended periods on a machine inserted in to a flatbed. Much domestic discussion led to the purchase of 


a SewEzi table.  After a full weekend of sewing on it, I am full of praise.  Sturdy legs, smooth table surface, easy to put up and down, truly portable, worth every penny.  It helped me get to the borders stage with the splash and triangles quilt top.



I’m still making design decisions on the plain parts of the borders and am swaying between appliqué of some of the splash shapes, and leaving them blank for some dramatic machine quilting.  To be considered further.


  1. Good for you! Looks like a great - comfortable ergonomic sewing positions are a must!

  2. Hmmm - table envy!!

    That quilt top is stunning by the way. I would quilt the border rather than appliqué it. But that's just me!

  3. Jackie has one and loves it. The quilt is looking stunning!


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
