On my design wall today are some origami/3-D Bow Tie blocks that I made several years ago as part of a swap on Treadle On. For this swap, the blocks had to be made on a sewing machine that was manufactured prior to 1900 and the fabrics used had to be unbleached muslin and a reproduction of a pre-1900 fabric. All of these blocks are labeled with the maker’s name and location, but also the type of antique machine. Each was made on either a treadle or a hand crank machine.
These have been stowed away for years after I just couldn’t decide how best to set them. You will note that in this arrangement, there is one block missing. Apparently I was so intent on getting my blocks made for the swap, I forgot to make one for myself, so I shall have to make one more block before I can put this top together. This is February’s UFO challenge top, and this is as far as I have gotten……what are my chances to get this finished before Feb. 28? I still have to find fabric for the borders!
