Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I have a cabin that would love your quilt..... ha ha!! It's beautiful. I'm trying to finish some quilts that I started a while back. Now that I can sew again..... the arm is still weak but my therapist says I'm getting stronger every visit... Yeah!!
I'm still new here. But these are the vintage machines I have: *1958 Pfaff 60, *Singer 503A, *Singer 301A (love this machine!, *Singer 403A, *Singer 348 (turquoise color). And tomorrow I am going out of town to pick up another Singer 301 that I saw on Craigslist today. It's in great condition and still in the cabinet. I can't wait to get her.
Cindy - I keep looking at your bag and loving it. Why do I get bags grubby as soon as I leave the house? If ever I made a lovely bag like yours it would have to be for someone else.
Here's my latest bit of work, a doll quilt which has now reached its new owner in Canada. I have joined a blog-based doll quilt swap, and made this quilt with three machines - appliqué and stitched detail on it with the 1897 28K hand machine, outline quilting and binding with the 1927 99K hand machine, and free motion quilting with the 1945 15K treadle.
The design is based on traditional canal art and which I drew specially for this quilt because my swap partner's mother and I are from the same part of England - I've done a long post on my blog explaining it all, and you should enjoy the links I have put there to sites showing canal art. A dark green background would have been more traditional, but I gave my partner the choice and she went for blue. Other than knowing the quilt would have dark navy blue, she had no idea what to expect. I love sending people total surprises.
Muv, your doll quilt is beautiful. Did you do all the applique' blanket stitch by hand? I love doing meandering/stippling with my 15-88 treadle - you did a wonderful job as always!
Oh, that is so pretty! I've never heard of canal art...where does the name come from?
Perhaps your bags would stay nice longer if you sprayed them with a waterproof spray first?
