Dream Machine Challenge!

Hello friends. Yes, here it is again. 'Absolutely love this Sewing Machine applique pattern designed by Pat Sloan. This Challenge is to create the machine in your own fancy colors and fabrics. What would be your own idea of the perfect sewing machine? So, here is mine.

I decided to display my quilt in a quilter's hoop. Do you remember some years ago when this type of hoop art was so popular? My Dream Machine is black, with computerized LED window. Notice the medallion has my initial "D" inside of it. Added a green polka dot ruffle for decoration. You knew this would include some green, right? Lol. Added a drawer to the table to look like my own sewing table, and a quilt block under the needle. A little blue bird holds the thread end. This little quilt measures 24" diameter including the ruffle, and expresses me so well. Be sure to visit the link party to see many more creative takes on two of Pat's Sewing Machine patterns. To see a close-up of my Dream Machine, follow the link below my signature.

*contest deadline: 22nd June*

Here is a close-up view of my Dream Machine. Now the green thread in the blue bird's mouth is more visible. The quilting is meandering swirls and loops. Batting is Warm N' Natural©. This project was a lot of fun to make, and will look perfect hanging in my sewing area. Many thanks to Pat for hosting this awesome Challenge. Prim quilting blessings.

  5. Over the last couple years, I purchased some patterns from E-Bay that were for quilts in hoops. If I ever make any of them, I don't plan on displaying them in hoops but I do like the designs.

  6. Thanks Val and Karen. Well, displayed in the hoop is different, lol. Something interesting for the sewing area.
