En Provence - Clue 1

It's that time of year again. Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt clues have begun! Thank you, Bonnie, for your generosity! Each of my posts can be found by my purple grin!

When I saw the luscious color palette, all of which I had in my stash, I figured I needed to participate. 

Want to join in? Go to quiltville.blogspot.com and select the En Provence tab to find all you need to know. Here's the direct link for clue 1 and the post to see everyone's progress!

When I saw this fabric, which I see as a neural, I thought it would add an interesting look to clue 1.


I paired the floral with various white fabrics and got the 221 (+3 just in case) units together. 

I am sewing on a 1937 Singer 221 (Featherweight) and using all purpose thread. I love these machines! Do you have a favorite vintage machine?


















124 are sewn, 100 to go. They are pretty four-patches! Sparkie agrees!

Thanks for visiting. If you have a vintage sewing machine, check out my Featherweight Skill Series tab and Featherweight Quilters Skill Series tab on the top of the page!
