    Well if this thread extends beyond quilts, here are a couple of pictures of my daughter - she's 15 - in a summer top I have just finished using my 1940 28K shown here http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-130994-13.htm

    It was an exercise in pattern drafting, she wanted a 1960's style square neck, and the print has a 60's look about it. Before all you Americans start jumping up and down, no the pictures aren't of the Kremlin, it's Brighton Pavilion.
    I really like the decorative black detail around the edges. Is that piping or a ribbon?

    Hello SewExtreme, thanks for looking at the doll quilt. I have to confess that the decoration in the centre was an afterthought. Once I'd done the border and binding it looked empty in the middle, so it was time for the emergency ribbon, buttons and beads.

    Hello Bennett, the edging is narrow ribbon. She wanted wider ribbon, but I had to educate her! She's not one for sewing, she'd far rather ride a horse.

    Here are a few things I have done on my Bernina 830... from 1975, that is! I have had it since it was new and it has always been dependable. I did the complete items and the FMQing with this machine - first time of FMQ.

    This 2011 July Doll Quilt Swap quilt was pieced entirely on my vintage Singer 301A and then the FMQ was done on my rather newer 2004 Bernina Artista~~which I also do love.

    I honestly cannot say enough great things about my 301. It is such strong work horse and very straight seams. I absolutely love it to pieces, sorta speak. :-D

    Finally finished - the quilt I pieced on the 1913 Serata treadle, which can be seen at http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-130994-8.htm

    I bought the machine in May, and had to try it out. I wanted something that I could do quickly, and this project involved lots of long strips, ideal for getting used to sewing with a treadle. It's a wonderful machine - so smooth!

    I got it quilted at the quilt shop, but put the binding on with the treadle. No, no hand sewing - that would take me forever. Slowly but surely I'm building up towards making quilts entirely at home.

    Very nicely done! I love the print, the square style neck, and the way you did the buttons. She's a pretty girl too!!!

    Linda, I love all your projects! They all look like they were fun to make. You have given me some ideas for some quick projects.

    Very pretty quilt! I agree that long strips are ideal for treadle quilts. This is a cute way to use the long strips. Also great for a quilt made from scraps.

    Just had to tell you all that she won 2nd place in her class of quilts. I am so proud of her and she is happy too. Her quilt is on page 6.
