The Adventures of Jennifer and Neola

My sewing machine has a name. It's Neola, after my grandmother. That's a picture of her as a baby in the silver frame. We have been busy working away the last few days! I am IN LOVE with my machine! I don't even know all the tricks yet--my Bernina classes aren't until the end of October. I can't wait!

I found the perfect pattern for my Lecien fabric. Its the "Quilt Pink" free pattern from Moda. I thought of it because I remembered a gorgeous quilt Doe made using it. I've made two blocks so far, and they're coming together really quickly.

I've also done all the cutting for my "Chubby Chicks" quilt. I've started piecing the pinwheel blocks.Well, back to the grindstone!

I can't wait to see how both of these turn out.

I haven't done any quilting in so long I am not sure I remember how.

I am working on a stitchery for my grandma for her birthday though.

You have been busy. I can't believe you've got all the fabric cute for the chicks quilt. I haven't even picked out the fabric for mine yet. :o) Have fun with your machine, Neola.
