This is one of the blocks I drafted up for Ange's BOM. It's one from that Japanese book of blocks. I'd tell you the name, but I can't read it, lol! Looks great!


This is such a cool block! Addicted to inset seams though? You're crazy! :)


I agree with Ellen up there:

Great block, but I have never tried a Y seam and not sure I'm ready for that!!

LOL...you really should have talked about THAT SEWING MACHINE! It is so SEW pretty. It reminds me of a car from the 50s. I love the color and the style of it. not that I need another sewing machine, but I WANT that one or one just like it.

Yes, your bunny is adorable.


I would love to make that block. Will you make it available? I, too, like y-seams!


Love both blocks!! When school is done.. I hope to play more Y-seam and paper piecing. It has been long time since I have work around precious works. :) p.s. I found another feedsack friend here..:)


Are you going to make that pattern available? I love it!


Love the blocks ~ I've not done y-seams yet, but next Thursday I'm going on a sewing retreat and I'm planning on making a block that has them. Lucky for me I'll be in the company of lots of seasoned sewists ~ so I'll be sure to have help (even if I don't want it ~ teehee).


OMG...love that machine...Great block by the way. It is beautiful


I'm with everyone else...in love with the machine. Please tell us about her! I just ran to my sewing room to look at a block that I made last year that is very similar. The only difference is that the center portion of the block is a curved seam rather than straight....a real glutton for punishment, huh!

Your machine looks to be in WAY better condition than mine!


These machines were made by Janome back in the day. And they have a box of "cams" that you can stick in the top of the machine to provide you with different decorative stitches.

I can't wait to hear more about yours!!!
