Lets Sew Quilt Along Layout

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:

Sew Let’s Quilt Along

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.

Uh huh.

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!
