Machine cover

 It's linky Tuesday, with the girls at Quilt Story, thank you girls :)

My sewing machine was made in the late 1800's. It's one of the very first things my husband bought me, 18 yrs ago! And I love it. It sews beautifully (as long as I keep it oiled an cleaned ). So I decided it was time that I made a cover for it. To help keep the dust off, even though I use it almost every day, when you live in the mountains and have kids and dogs...you get dust! lol

Made with my lovely Sunkissed I've been hording. With a touch of blue for some POP.

It still needs some ties on the ends, to help keep it together and on.

Yes, the binding needs to be sewn down too....

 I love prairie points. And since this is just going to be sitting around, I decided to keep the cute little pinky shear cut on the jelly roll edge that I used.

My machine quilting is improving I think. I am pretty happy with how it came out on this project.

Have a great day!

 Thanks for stopping by, Dorian
