BOMs for June

I have joined two free BOMs this year, the one from Aurifil and Pat Sloan's Globetrotting.

This is the 2014 Aurifil June block, designed by Heidi Pridemore.

This month's block for the Clobetrotting BOM is called St. Louis.

It was good to do some sewing again after finishing the picnic quilt. My Janome is in the shop now for some much needed maintenance, so these two blocks were pieced on my old Pfaff 93.

It is a machine probably over 50 years old, and it weighs a ton (almost)! No plastic in this babe, only solid metal. I haven't used it for more than three years, but after a few drops of oil it is purring like a cat and sewing perfect seams. I think I'll even try to do some FMQ with it, too, even though that has never been done with this machine before.

Happy quilting!

  1. The old machines are truly the best Anita - I love my Featherweight. I had a fancy sewing/embroidery machine and sold it to get a less fancy one that quilts beautifully. Both were/are Janomes, a brand I love. Yesterday my ten year old very expensive washer quit and I bought the cheapest machine they had to replace it. I've hated that fancy one ever since I bought it! blessings, marlene
