Karla:

Here's my MQ8, nothing fancy, but done none-the-less.

Beautiful, Karla - your MQ turned out great!  I zoomed in to see how you quilted it.  I was thinking a geometric top might need geometric quilting, but I think your all-over stipple/meander looks fine, so that's what I may do, too.  Love the back!

Angele:
Agnes I always love to see what you do.

Angele--Thank you. I generally only sew when the spirit moves me. Makes surch a difference to the end result for me.

Roxana:
Agnes, what pattern did you follow for the ice packs?

Roxanna--I didn't have a pattern. I measured the ice pack. Cut the width plus 1.5 in. Length was a bit more, maybe 2.5 in plus twice the length. As the ice pack was about 9.5" I just used the width of the FQ. The ties are FQ 2" width cuts, pressed in half and then each side to the middle so finished width is about half an inch.Sew along the edge, turned under the raw end on one end. I bound the inner narrow  end, sewed on the velcro and the ties into position. Folded the bound end over so leave room for the top to flip over to close. Then bound the side, top and down other side. Last was the piece of velcro on the top edge. That's it in a nutshell.

I hardly ever use a pattern and if I actually start with one the end result hardly ever resembles the pattern. I guess I'm just a free spirit.

Yes, I love sewing on her and she is so wonderful to me. Always nice stitches, doesn't bind up or break the threads. I take her to retreats and in the RV when traveling. I see with a friend in the mountains of NM and she has a purple one also. We look like twins!  My husband painted them for us and we are very spoiled. I'm sure you love yours!

How nice that your husband did them for you........I purchased mine from Dave's Desk Featherweights already painted and my friend purchased Indigo Blue.  We love them.......but then we love any Featherweight!!!!

Thanks for sharing.  gloria g. Hemingway, SC

Today I am finally loading MQ6 onto the frame....going to get it quilted this week, even though at least 2 days this week I'll be in Reno for doctor/dental appointments....maybe 3 days as Quilt Expo is in Reno starting Wednesday...of course it could be on any day I was already scheduled to be in Reno.

Karla

If you turn the pedal around you can use your heel instead of your toe.  I do it all the time.

Agnes, thanks so much for the details. I love your work! .... My DH uses ice packs on a regular basis, so it's a no brainier that I must make one of these for him. 

Thanks again,

Duh, why didn't I think of that.

I finally got pics of the 2 baby quilts that I finished recently.   The first is for DGD's dance teacher who just had a little girl a week ago.

 

The 2nd is for a niece who just had a little girl a couple weeks ago.  Her family is already talking about when she gets her first BB gun and fishing pole.   So I decided she needed a "tomboy" quilt.

 

I embroidered her name on the tool box.
