The great selection of patchwork and quilting puzzles fascinates me. There are so many interesting designs and pictures portrayed.

Recently I came across one called Patchwork Quilt with a quilt draped around a treadle sewing machine. This reminded me of making quilts with my grandmother. We sewed them by hand, but my aunt and grandmother had a treadle sewing machine sitting in the corner of the room where we worked.

I also learned to sew on treadle machines, the one my mom had in her bedroom and another my 4-H sewing teacher kept in a small room piled high with fabric...her sewing room.

Do quilting puzzles bring back memories to you?
