New Work: "Grandmother"

Grandmother1

Just finished! "Grandmother" (24x30) is based on a photo I took of an antique sewing machine at the Windham Textile Museum (Willimantic, CT).

You know I can't resist a good set of gears or piece of machinery with bits of shiny metal!

  1. Words cannot describe how blown away I am!! I sew on this machine and other vintage Singers. It makes me so happy to see how stunning you were able to make this! Wow, just wow.

    1. Thanks Linda! I don't use it now, but I learned to sew on a Singer which was passed down from my Grandmother to my mom to me. I'm sure this machine will trigger memories for many quilters out there, like us. That's why it was so important to me to get the details right. :-)

  4. Hi Carol,
    I'm hoping to include it in an upcoming show in PA. But if not, "Grandmother" will find a home in my studio :-)
