Then I put the binding on with my Miss Ida 301a. They both did a great job, and it felt so good sewing with them. I loved it!
    Janice, That's a pretty quilt! Awesome that you pieced almost the entire quilt using a FW. Aren't you glad you had your ladies to help you out. There is something comforting about using these vintage beauties. You did a beautiful job with this quilt!
    Thanks, Monica!!

    I used to think that, but not any more. I am soooo sold on the vintage/antique machines!

    My next quilt project I am going to try to use my 66-1 in treadle to do the top. I am excited to try it!!

    More Sewing machines covers that can be draped over machines to keep the dust out. Very simple and quick to make, nothing difficult or time consuming.
    This is just one side of the reversible cover that I decorated one area with buttons. From this one side of the sewing cover, there are two looks: a strip and solid print with buttons.
    Machines used were Two Spools for piecing and Davis NVF for quilting.

    I made another baby quilt. I just love using this quick and fun pattern from Moda. Piecing was done with the Two Spools, quilting with a Singer 201, binding attached with Davis NVF, and decorative stitching with Singer 328K.

    These projects are lovely. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm working on two vintage machines and hope to start my first sewing in a few weeks.
