Prince Charming and other things

I made this Prince Charming quilt using Fairy Face Designs tutorial for the Picture Box Quilt.   It was going to be a baby quilt, but didn't look very babyish.  It is kind of big for a baby, but a great size for a toddler.  That's ok because my husband, daughter and I all love and want this quilt!  The pictures don't do this lovely fabric justice.  I really need to get a good camera.  I quilted it with the panto Drip.  That was perfect for this.

Here is my pink sewing machine.  I thought it was a White but it is a Morse.  I don't know a lot about Morse's but it seems like a really nice machine.  I have too many vintage machines, and this one might go up on the auction block after it is cleaned up and tested.

And finally here is my grandson Elijah.  At Bible Camp the theme was Western, and they had a couple of Hobby Horses.  Elijah loved playing with them, so his mom found a tutorial on how to make them and asked if I would make one for Elijah.  The horse turned out pretty cute.  I would make it differently if I were to make more.  His little sister would like one and his cousins may too when they see this horse, so that is probably in my future.  Elijah named his horse Elijah the horse.

Quilt is lovely, and the Morse is gorgeous, although it looks more of a coral or orangish. Morse's are supposed to be wonderful machines. Sure you don't want to hang onto it? The older machines are so pretty to look at!

Cute Grandson and horse too!

I wish I had the problem of too many vintage machines. Instead I have the problem ofno space for too many vintage machines. I do have a couple though. My favourite is my 1954 Kenmore. So pretty. And it works so well. I sew denim and leather on it like it was made for it. :) Your quilts are amazing!
