    Sharon,
    Awesome quilt for a boy. Like the color combos too.

    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Earthwalker,Mrs. Finch and Chris_quilts,
    Thank you so much for your kind comments. The skateboard quilt will soon go to its new owner, it got packed up with lots of other quilts for delivery. The Linus Connection is a local organization that gives hand made quilts,fleece and yarn blankets to in-need kids in central Texas. All of the large scale fabrics in the quilt are salesman's samples.
    The Pfaff is a wonderful machine. I discovered yesterday that I can FMQ with it, however it looks bad on the reverse side. It sews bindings and everything else just fine, so I'm happy with it.

    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.

    Oh Christine, you are so sweet..... but sorry, I'm not up to adoption these days. But you should try one of these. It took a long time but it really was worth it. My daughter and her hubby love it and even my grandkids have called to say they like it..... that's worth a ton. They all live so far away that I only get to see them about once a year.

    Just a hint..... I got this pattern from a tutorial here on QB for cathedral windows......

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    I have spent the last couple of weeks going thru this thread and I just have to say "AWESOME work ladies and gents". I have so enjoyed reading and seeing all the wonderful things accomplished on the older machines...I too love the older models, they were so well made and still work so well, especially for quilting!!!Keep posting, I love looking!

    Welcome Quilts4Charity,
    I also make charity quilts. My favorite machines are treadles and my older(22 and 30 year old) Berninas 930 and 1031, the Berninas aren't old enough for this group and also a 38 yr old Pfaff 1222E.

    Bento box top is done, and I cut too many strips so incorporated them into a baby quilt. If it had a name, maybe "Chicken in my Bento Box Leftovers" or, hmm, maybe not. My White 1514 sews so fast with its powerful motor that strip quilts practically sew themselves!
