Look Mom! I Sewed Something.

I went to sew at the church last night with my buddies.  Since I found my corners for this quilt I decided I would get that quilt top going again.  I put a quick call into my friend to borrow her featherweight since mine hasn't been unearthed yet. 

Sewed on the corners then went about cutting the borders.  The fabric is a patterned stripe that runs lengthwise.  I looked and measured an fiddled a little bit.  Then I consulted with some of my sewing buddies and set to cutting.  I got all the borders cut and decided that I would sew them on later.  Well that got me into trouble the last time so I went ahead and attached them.  I have to press the borders and then miter the corners.  Everyone was packing up to leave at this point so that WILL have to be done later.  At least I know exactly where the iron and board is!



Is barefoot sewing universal?  Anyone recognize that other set of toes?

I think barefoot sewing is universal... esp if you have an old Singer or a Featherweight with the button to depress with your big toe!

:)

Of course, if one tends to drop a lot of pins on the floor, one may prefer to wear shoes...

I try to sew with shoes, especially in the winter, but now I just take my shoes off when I walk into the studio. And, great to see you sewing, even with a borrowed machine.

very nice swooze, and perhaps barefoot sewing comes with the quilting gene, not sure, but it is a must with featherweights. i sew that way with the old viking too, though; but in winter with socks on...LOL

Your quilt looks good on the bed...so pretty. At least my toes were done! And to think I loaned you my charger just so you could take a picture of our feet!!!
Yes, I always sew without my shoes no matter what machine I'm working on!

Love the quilt, the colors are just amazing. Shoes in my sewing room - not a chance. My feet need to feel that pressure foot :)
