A little work in progress…

It’s this beautiful! My favorite kind of quilting is the scrappy look with every color under the rainbow mixing together 🙂

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…

A couple of months ago I borrowed a friends Baby Go cutter and went to work cutting some of my scraps into small circles (check out this quilt wip….) and small half square triangles (HST).

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!

Off To Pioneer Village Museum!

This weekend I have the exciting privilege to be demonstrating my treadles and hand cranks at a local museum for their Heritage Days festival! I have done this each year for about a decade and it is a lot of fun. If you are in the area and would like to attend here is the website: Pioneer Village Museum for information. They will have all sorts of “living history” folks there doing the crafts and things from the old pioneer days of Wisconsin. They have over 20 buildings and many of them are old originals that have been moved onto the property. So much history to experience! If you can visit you won’t regret it 🙂
