A Quilt Along

Yet Another, 12 Days of Christmas Mystery Quilt-Along, Day 6

Welcome to Day 6!

Today we will make a sewing machine block!

You may ask why I made my sewing machine white…

My original quilt design had a black sewing machine, but for Christmas a few days ago I received the most beautiful Featherweight machine that I’ve seen to date from my DH. When choosing fabric I decided to make this quilt block to commemorate my newest Featherweight machine.

This machine, although it was born the same year I was, looks brand new & so does its box!

I’m so excited to sew on it!

Hopefully one of these days life will slow a bit & I’ll have a chance to do so.

I used my go-to freezer paper (no raw edges) appliqué

but you can feel free to use your favorite technique.

If you’d like to master a new technique in the new year, I have a lot of very short videos of the very easy task or turning the seam allowance under & machine stitching it so there are no raw edges on the appliqué.

This is a bigger version of my sewing machine that I originally designed last year during our Quarantiny quilt.

You can see how I made it here. It’s not hard but you will need to practice. Having the right tools is key, in particular Apliquick Bars & small glue sticks for this sewing machine but also paper circle cutters & other tools for the little Dresden plates.

I have everything you need for making little Dresden plates & turned edge appliqué on the notions page of my website. You can find them by clicking here.

The pattern you need to make your white (or black or whatever color you choose) sewing machine can be found my clicking the download button below.

The template is reversed for you.

When you get your blocks made (I know there are lots of you following along) please share them with us on my Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SewingWithSusan

I’ll be back tomorrow with our Day 7 block.

Just Keep Sewing…
