    Thank you all for the kinds words.

    Nancy, that's too bad about missing out on the rest of the BAB blocks. At least you only had to spend a dollar a month. Maybe you could use the blocks you have in a smaller project?

    I was so discouraged when I could not get any more of the same pattern I had been doing once a month that a gave the 4 or 5 blocks I had done away. I don't even remember who I gave them to - probably Hospice! It bugs me when I have unfinished projects like that - the ones that can't even be finished as first intended. I probably should have just incorporated a new fabric color - designing my own quilt! Your quilt is beautiful!

    That's such a pretty quilt.... don't you just love to get those UFOs done? Nancy, I just hate to hear that you gave away your blocks and can't finish yours. I'm up at the cabin now and brought 5 UFOs to get finished...... and only have my FW up here at the moment. So, wish me luck to get them finished. At least I don't have any more remodeling to do and my broken arm is healed now. I'll keep you all posted.

    This is an inspiring thread. I love to see the quilts made on the vintage ladies. I have just recently acquired a Feather Weight, a 66 all black, a 66-16 cabinet model to go along with my 301, 15-88 treadle, 66 red eye treadle, badged 15-91, and another red eye 66 boxed model. these are my vintage models, but I have some others from the 80's and newer ones too.
    My 301 is my piecer machine most of the time. And I have FMQ on her. I'll get pics of the quilts I still have to share that I made on my vintage machines.
    Thank you for this exciting thread.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    Here's my latest finished quilt! Its a twin size log cabin made with lots of brightly colored scraps. It belongs it to a very sweet 5 year old girl.
    I used two Singer treadles for piecing the blocks, it was quilted on a Babylock long arm machine with Valdani thread in a variegated in bright colors. The Pfaff 1222E was used to sew the binding.

    Sharon, how bright and cheery. I have a cousin that wants to make a log cabin quilt but is having a hard time deciding how she wants to lay out the blocks. I'll have to send her a picture of your quilt. She would love it. GOOD JOB!!
