I have started to sew together the quilt blocks from the Lets Sew Quilt Along into a flimsy.
The deadline is September 23. I don’t think that I am going to make the deadline, but I am giving it a shot.
I’ve chosen to border the sewing machine block with black and white tiles.
You can see my inspiration from this post, where I share my sewing studio makeover (How can it be seven years ago already?).
So here is what I have accomplished so far:

Kathy, over at Sewing Etc., will be snickering after I announce my latest project. Kathy was looking for a new BOM to play with, and I snubbly said that I wasn’t going to fall into that trap.
Famous last words and all that.
While blog surfing (my mistake, I know), I came upon a QAL that I found irresistible.
Partners in Design is offering a free QAL called Sew Lets Quilt. The first block is a sewing machine. You can see Snowy Days version here.
Here is my version of the block:
The block was fun to make!
I have a couple of embellishments to finish. The buttons are not attached, and I have marked where I want the thread to be embroidered. I am not embroidering the thread until I decide if I want to apply it by hand, or perhaps, machine quilt it later.
The nine patch is a left over unit from making Bonnie Hunter’s On Ringo Lake mystery quilt. I think it fits well into this block!
