Down in the Basement

Still so hot out the basement is the place to sew, cut, iron. And that is what I have been up to down there. Working on the new Trip Around the World, have one panel sewn together,
Four more on the way. And started cutting out the plaid fabrics and shirts that I have been accumulating. Decided to make a Scrappy Mountain Majesties from Bonnie's free patterns. I thought I could sew it at the same time as the Trip using it as a leader/ender project but getting the mountains in the right order is a little too fiddly to do that, so it will have to be sewn on it's own timeline.
Here are blocks getting cut. Before we went on vacation I was having trouble with my Featherweight skipping stitches so the other day I pulled it out of the card table where it lives and my DH cleaned and oiled it. Running like a charm now.
Sorry for the glare, I tried to edit it out but need more practise on my photo editing.

  1. I, too, am a follower of Bonnie at Quiltville's Quips and Snips (or is it Snips and Quips?) - lol - I will have to look it up. Your Trip Around the World quilt will be lovely - nice and scrappy. I will also have to look up the quilt pattern Mountain Majesties...not familiar with it.

    PS: I'm jealous you have a Featherweight!!!
