This past weekend, we were at our house on Long Island, and we set up the Aluminum Christmas tree! Classy huh? HAHA! I have always loved having a real tree, but with steam heat in NYC, which kills the trees licktey split, and at our house if we are not there, we can't water a tree, so we went for fast and easy the last couple years. FAKE… and if you go fake, you might as well go WHITE or SILVER… right? Pink tree? maybe next. ;-)
Digging through the Christmas goodies, means pulling out christmas quilts! Above is a small quilt when I was 19 years old. Wait, wasn't that yesterday? sigh.
I pieced it on the machine, then, not knowing how to do binding, I very carefully, folded in the seam allowance and did a knife edge… I am still kind of shocked that it lays flat. (My skills were not exactly divine, then) I did however, go back and hand quilt it, not nearly enough quilting, but, it's still together, and I still love it. ;-) Memories.
More christmas quilt show and tell to come… I have made quite a few, and I'm very happy to pull them out for show and tell!

On this one, It is for U.S. residents Only… Sorry!!!is perfect for both right or left hand fabric cutting. The contoured handle design and soft cushion make for remarkable comfort when gripping to cut. Also, by cupping the end of the handle in the palm of your hand, you have greater control over the device, and can hold it upright to make straighter fabric cuts. Just flip the safety switch to release the blade from the safety guard.
