Curve it Up – Block 7 – Log Cabin

WOMBAT QUILTS

Last week I woke to the news that Wombat Quilts had made it onto the “100 Best Quilting Blogs on the Planet”.  Feedspot, a blog reader, had put together this list by looking at site traffic, followers etc.  I came in at number 39.  To say I was pleasantly shocked is an understatement.

While I was looking through the list I noticed they had marked my blog as posting about once a month…. had I really slipped off schedule that much!  The answer is yes, kind of.  So in the spirit of sharing more I thought I would show you what I am working on this week…

Another Summer Demo

I’m looking forward to the upcoming Moon Lake Threshing Bee on August 20 & 21st. It’s very enjoyable demonstrating how to use a treadle sewing machine for those who attend and make their way to our building. The threshing Bee is a great place to experience a bit of history in Turtle Lake, Wisconsin.

This is my current project. I’ve been working on it over the last couple of years (yes you read that right) while doing the summer demos. 

Due to my sewing studio being under remodeling and working a full-time job the only time I’ve been sewing recently is during the summer demos I do. 

Finally got all the strips sewn together and this will be the layout, with a slight modification – the top will be placed at the bottom so I have rounded edges. More to come!
