Sewing machine Extension Table

Here is my Necchi Nora in her new, red table.  I didn't have room for another machine in a cabinet, and so I had to take her out of the one she came in.  However, she looked a little nude, and so I justified the purchase of a new jigsaw.  The worst part was making the pattern.  These machines sometimes came in a kidney shaped table, and so i decided to make her a kidney shaped extension table.  For those of you who don't sew, basically the more flat surface around a machine, the easier if is to sew.

This what I've been sewing lately.  Very utilitarian, using up chinks of red and red containing scraps.  I ve got two big scrap bins, and I'm a little sick of them.  So, i thought it would be interesting to see how many squares came from a bin, No idea what Ill do with them!

On your scrappy rectangle, make several blocks, then sash them together. Cool quilt! I like the base you made for your Necchi. I need one for my Singer 66, if I can convert her to a hand crank. If not, I guess I'll have to trade out one of the treadle bases for her to share. Gotta get her cleaned up, first.

I'm going to have to ask my mom--I think that Necchi or one like it, in avocado, was her machine.

Have you checked out the 15 Minutes Play blog? There are lots of ideas there for using "made fabric" like your scrappy squares of red. (
