Old Sewing Machines

I was in Old Sacramento last week and in one of the stores they had a display of old sewing machines. I thought it interesting and snapped a few quick photos with my phone. One of the things I found interesting was the brand names. Of course, who hasn't heard of Singer, but I never heard of Standard before, and thought Brunswick made bowling equipment!

A quilt for me

I wanted to make a pretty blanket to cuddle in, so...
Dec 31, 2011...stack of fabric.
January 2, 2012... quilt top

I still need to add a border, but my quilt top is just about done. Hooray.

Next, I need to find backing and binding fabric and some money to get it quilted, because there is no way I am quilting this big quilt on my little machine.
