Alchemy Learns to Quilt

008Enough with the apple orchard and the traveling – Alchemy was ready to try out quilting!  I’d have to say she did a pretty good job. 003   Here she is getting acquainted with my new baby – a Pfaff.  My real baby, the Janome is in the shop for maintenance but I’ve been really happy with my Pfaff as my ‘second-in-line’ machine.004 Now that she’s figured out the basics she was ready to start sewing.  I thought we’d start with something fairly simple with a great end effect – a tumbler quilt with the die-cut blocks I purchased from Fabric Ala Carte on etsy.  005 Alchemy is admiring my “new” vintage Sunbeam Ironmaster Iron that I recently purchased from bythewayside.   They just don’t make irons like they used to.006 With very little effort (other than lifting the iron) Alchemy was able to iron a perfect seam.007 And as you can see, in no time, Alchemy had the quilt top all pieced together.  Now I just have to send it off to my Aunt of www.quiltsbybarb.com to do the long-arm quilting. 

I think tomorrow Alchemy’s going to try out some jewelry making and probably more sewing…we’ll just have to see where the day takes us!

Like so many of us, this little meerkat enjoys life to the full, and finds pleasure and relaxation in creating. Yay for Jaci and her irons, I picked up two vintage travel irons from her, for a 7 year old to use. The small irons are so much easier for small hands to manage.

The quilt top looks so joyful and happy.

Another great day for you and for Alchemy.
