The inspiration for this design is just around us daily, a sewing machine is an essential of life! I create Quilted Postcards and patchwork quilts on a modern sewing machine, but I have an old hand Singer sewing machine that both Laura and I made our first quilts on. The design has been finished in a 9" square frame.

This pattern is easy to follow, as long as you have some basic embroidery skills

I made this pattern twice for two loved ones as a valentine gift. My first blackwork projects, too!
