More Button Blocks

After several hours of treadling yesterday, I started stitching on this block:

Button Block 6

The only reason I stopped sewing is because I ran out of muslin for the foundation piecing!

I have to tell you too, if you're looking for a sewing machine that doesn't have a cow every time you want to sew 2 pieces of velvet together, an old treadle machine is the way to go! That machine just breezes right through it!

With my electric machine, I have to add some iron-on interfacing to the back of the velvet and I have to use my Walking Foot. I tried it on my treadle without interfacing and I just used the all purpose foot and it was amazing! A walk through the park! I swear, this machine would sew 2 pieces of plywood together without any fuss!

Anyway, I'll be stitching the rest of the day so I do expect to finish this one up later.

I love it! I'm so glad you're getting so much enjoyment from your treadle machine!

Pam your blocks are all so gorgeous! I loved my old machine until it really decided to bite the dust. They don't make machines (or anything!) like they used to!
