You must be a Master Gardener if...

What the finished quilt will look like.
My finished blocks.
I started piecing a new quilt today.  It's a Patchwork Party quilt.  This one is for my mom.  I've been using the Singer 201 sewing machine to piece this week.  What a wonderful machine!

Singer 15-91 affectionately called "the tank".  I use this to sew leather, heavy canvas, etc.
In this photo you see leather I used to reupholster my chiropractor's table.
It was 1/4" thick and this machine went through it like it was butter.
 (The blue bin you see in the above photo are my worms.  .... What?  You don't keep worms in your dining room?)
