Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian visitors!
My celebration plans include some gardening, a BarBQ, maybe a parade and fireworks depending on the weather, and a little treadling time with my Singer Treadle from 1901!
I have made some progress on my Treadled Scrap quilt. I cut the black background fabric I purchased and decided to go with a variety of widths. I posted a photo of some strips on my design wall back in April (click here to see that post) and decided that I liked the idea of the background strips being many different sizes. This is kind of how it might look, with the various black sashings between the scrappy strips. I am going to start treadling some sections of the scraps together and then attach them to a background strip.
It's encouraging to be moving to the next stage with this quilt. I've been treadling scraps for a year and a half and will finally have something to show for it!
Won't it be so amazing to someday have a finished quilt made entirely on the treadle machine?!?
