June Jelly Roll progress

Making progress on Doreen's June Jelly Roll SewAlong. The pattern is called Willow Weave and it's a mystery so we don't know what the finished quilt top will look like. Knowing Doreen, it's going to be beautiful!

Caught up for this week. Finished all the cutting...  
 Strip sets sewn...
laid out...
and sewn into 120 blocks!
A total of (120) 6-patch blocks and (10) 2-patch units with extra squares.  Can't wait to see how these blocks will go together. Doreen tells us there is a twist! Check out the Linky on Doreen's blog post to see everyone's progress for this week.

Next, the last borders on the Medallion Sewalong with Lori and Randy. Click on Randy's Barrister's Block's recent post  "You can never have enough sewing machines!". How many machines do you have? Quilter with the most machines wins a prize!

I was surprised to count 17, there are others with as many!!!
Seven machines I use on a regular basis, some for my business...
My faithful first love... Bernina Virtuosa 153QE, the perfect piecer
Juki TL-2010Q, for FMQ, walking foot and business
Juki Exceed Quilt and Pro, I take this one to classes and for machine applique
Juki 3 spool serger, set up for rolled hem edging
Janome Gem Gold, used to take to classes before the Juki
Janome serger, for my home dec business
Janome needle felting machine
Mitsubishi industrial straight stitch, for home dec business
US industrial hemmer, for home dec business
Gammill Optimum longarm, business
Singer 221 Featherweight, for fun! Love the sound of it while it sews beautifully!
Singer 66 Redeye Treadle with 7 drawer cabinet
Singer Treadle, not sure of the model or decals, it's not a Memphis
Singer 201 portable in a bentwood case
Singer Sew Handy Model 50 (Toy machine)
JC Penny's 1950s home sewing machine in a cabinet
Montgomery Ward Precision Round Bobbin Model 188
There are four that could find new homes and one is promised to my son. That would bring me back to a dozen :0) I read about an organization that restores and ships treadles and hand cranks to 3rd world countries. That would be a good thing

The new block and story posted this morning for Grandmother's Choice was interesting... Cats and Mice and hunger strikes. How Suffragette's in 1909 GB were force fed following a hunger strike in prison. Ugly :0( History repeats itself...


  1. Wow! You have really made a lot of progress. Way to go.

  2. Wow! I love your fabric! Can't wait to see all your blocks put together.

  3. Excellent progress on your sew along quilt Jo!
    Such pretty fabrics too!
    I really enjoyed reading about all the sewing machines you and other's use. Such diversity with all these machines and very enlightening to learn all of their purposes
