Sewing Machine Nostalgia with Betty Hutton

Hi Ladies! and any Crafty Gents!

I hope you all had a lovely Monday!  I spent the day working on my promised “Place Mat Love Part 2 – The Binding…”  For now, I’ve got some pictures to share and soon, yes, very soon, I will actually be posting my very first official video tutorial which details the “how-to’s” of putting this baby together with NO hand sewing required!!!  Woot!  LUV those sewing tips!

But, before I share place mat pictures, please join me in a moment of cinematic nostalgia with the lovely, Betty Hutton, singing, “The Sewing Machine Song.”

Wasn’t that fun? I hope you liked it as much as me. She was one great performer….

Anyway, here’s a few pictures (a sneak preview) of what I’ve been up to today. And I will be posting the binding video just as soon as possible.

Getting Started.... Cutting out front, batting, and backing 14"x20" & Marking a grid on the front fabric...

My friend and yours, the "Curved Safety Pin"

All pinned up and ready to quilt!


All Done! Ooops, you blinked and missed my binding trick.... Stay tuned for the video.... Coming SOON, I promise!
