    Hi Joe,
    I've got some pictures showing what I mean by accordion pleating your quilt. Please let me know if the pictures helped.

    Sharon,

    Thanks for the pics. They helped confirm that what we thought you said is what you meant.

    I love your quilts and your machines, I have two 301s that get lots of use. I am now working on a paper pieced project with my 1891 Jones and Co. hand crank. I'm sure your aunts are going to love their quilts. DJ

    djc,

    I gotta research "paper pieced quilts". I have no idea what that means.



    Sharon,
    That sure is a tiny looking Pfaff, is that a 3/4 size machine or an optional delusion?

    gramquilter2,
    I like your sewing machine cover too. I have 4 featherweights.

    Crossstitcher ,
    Thank you. Lately all of my quilts go to the 2 charities that I sew quilts for; The Linus Connection and Thank You Quilters.

    I made this starting yesterday quilting the material and cutting out. Sewed it together today. It is a nasty wintery mix day here today. I use a Singer Merritt for the quilting and 301 for putting it together.

    PS: Is it ok to post other items on here besides quilts when they are made with a vintage machine?

    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Trish, of course it is. The quilt police don't use this site!! Very nicely quilted and put together. Love the fabric you used.

    Trish your bag is adorable! All things made with vintage machines are prized here!

    Gramquilter2, I love your sewing machine cover!

    Joe, actually that is a Pfaff 1222e - which is a full sized machine! I think it looks funny because of the angle of the photo.

    Nancy,

    Thanks. The angle and size of the quilt really makes it look small.

    Joe,
    Optical illusion most definitely.
    Its a 1222E, full size machine, has 8" of throat space. My first electric Pfaff. My favorite machine for binding quilts; has the IDT (aka:built in walking foot).
    It is hard to take a picture where my cabinet is, as the space is kinda tight and not much room to stand back to get a good shot.
