Diamonds ......


I have seen many people remarking on the problems with comments being emailed.... I'm just adding my apologies for not sending replies to anyone.  I have commented on my individual page but many of us don't go back to the blogs - changed a setting and now my comments on comments have disappeared too!!! haha.... I shouldn't try and fix things on my own!


On Friday we had a scheduled power outage..... not that I really need an excuse but this is always a great time for me to get out my treadle machine and do some of my own sewing (usually I do work sewing during the day - except for ChooseDays!)

We treadled and hummed together .....


On Friday night at The Quilters Angel sewing we had some lovely treats... we always get delicious desserts but this time it was an assortment of lovely little treats....


Because some pressing needed to be done there was only so much I could do whilst the electricity was shut down so I continued on Saturday. 


The top is all together now.... I do love it.....  the edges will be trimmed straight post quilting....


The thread lasted me out well too!



I finished off my knitted wash cloth.  Jane from Loopy's Place put out a calender with a different craft each month.  I haven't kept up with them all but I do love handmade wash cloths and knitting (or crochet) is something I can do when sitting in the car


This top was made completely on the treadle machine..... finished size is 69" x 83"


Righto, Gotto Go - power is on - there is work to be done!

Your top is gorgeous and well done on making it all on the treadle!! I started making a mini on mine but haven't got back to it in a while. Will you quilt it on the treadle too.... :-0 (PS those dessert goodies look Delish!)

Joy from Days Filled With Joy said...

Wow, all on the treadle, you are amazing!! I would love to own a treadle... one day... :) Sorry everyone on blogger is having so much trouble - this whole privacy thing is such a pain. xx

Sue SA said...

Your diamond quilt is beautiful, so impressed you made it all on the treadle, I have never go the foot to hand coordination to sew on a treadle the few times I have had the opportunity!

Helen said...

Beautiful top, lovely fabrics and colours.

Louise said...

Oh, those diamonds are lovely! I'm tempted to try something similar, although laying tops out in diagonal rows makes me cranky. I just have no place to leave the top half finished and it's so hard to pick up those oddly shapes rows. Sigh.

Don't feel guilty about not answering your comments. We're all in the same boat (ha ha!) trying to see how this all plays out...

Susan said...

Lovely diamond quilt

and I get that its a pain to reply at the moment - lets hope it can get sorted.

Cheryll said...

You can't keep a good woman down... electricity or not...xox

Karen S said...

Well done on the finish with the diamond top. That looks great. Love that it was all done on the treadle.
Those sweet delights from Friday night looked far too tempting!!
Good luck sorting out comments. For once it is not my site that is mucking up.
With so many complaints I hope Blogger sorts it out for everyone.

Your quilt is wonderful, Fiona.

Ellie Merk said...

Beautiful quilt and look at those yummy desserts :)

WoolenSails said...

That is a beautiful quilt, love the design and fabrics.
I realized something was wrong when I didn't get any mail from posts, really love having it come to my mail so I can replay to each one.

How good is that and a somewhat tricky pattern to match corners on, so a great achievement on the deadly treadly. Now, will you be quilting it on the treadly or going the modern method?
