Paper piecing with my new to me hand crank!

Well I did it I got a hand crank sewing machine!! It's a 1925 singer 66. I'm so excited! It arrived on Friday. I was getting it out of the box & my husband called to asked if I could drive to Topeka (2.5-3 hour round trip) to pick up parts for some machinery. I did but I did play/tinker with the sewing machine before I left. She sews a beautiful  stitch. I'm planing on using her mainly for paper piecing. My first project is Bonnie Hunters "Wild & Goosey" blocks. I have 6 blocks done. 3 were done on a electric machine & 3 were done on the crank. I prefer the crank so far for paper piecing. Off to sew some more. Hope y'all are having a great day. 



  1. I've been going back and reading your blog. You are definitely a lady after my own heart. I love scrappy quilts AND I would love to find a good treadle or hand crank machine to try. This block is stunning. I'm also a Bonnie Hunter fan.!

  2. What do you mean by hand crank?
