What do you think Bernina would think of this classic image! Lyn hadn't cleaned her machine since buying it and there was quite a bit of gunk in the bobbin area. Typical male solution - get some machinery on the job - it worked a treat I can tell you.
Last year in Houston I bought some uncompleted double wedding ring/pickle dish arcs in 40's fabrics. They were so wonky with no two arcs the same size so I redrew the block in EQ and made a new arc template. I recut the arcs to be all the same and am in the process of piecing them with a yellow spot centre. Haven't decided on the colour for larger joining piece yet but it is fun working with all these lovely vintage prints. Check out Martha's blog here to see some pieces almost the same and a different way of piecing them.
Keep an eye out for the next issue of Down Under Quilts which will be featuring the raffle quilt we made for this year's Springwood Quilt Show. It's in an article on new ways with old designs and this is the quilt.
Have a look at Deborah (the editor's) blog here for more info.
