    That looks like my mom's 1940ish machine. I learned to sew on it. I pieced my first 9 patch on it. My grandmother and aunt then put my blocks into a quilt and quilted it. It was a treadle machine as we didn't have electricity when she first got her machine.

    I need to try mine, I'm just a bit to timid.

    thanks all. It is easier than it seems, just have to remember to give the wheel a turn before starting. It's like riding a bike - comes back. Will post pictures of the quarter square triangle blocks maybe tomorrow.
