    It's not a quilt, yet, but here are some quilt squares that I made from "crumbs" and they were sewn on my Singer 301. This machine was able to sew the smallest scraps together without "eating" them.

    That's going to be a very pretty crumbs quilt! I love using up the crumbs this way. Looking forward to seeing your posting of the finished quilt. Thanks!

    Monica, I really love this quilt, it always reminds of Billy's root beer painted SM. Thank you again.

    Cathy, that crumb is gorgeous. I have been wanting to do one of those for about a year now. Let me get up and get started.

    Here are a couple of pictures of a quilt I made for my daughter. Her favourite colours are pink and green, but not necessarily together. It's the Sister's Choice pattern shown on Bonnie Hunter's website. The top was pieced on the Frister and Rossmann 1937 transverse shuttle which is shown in the thread Vintage Sewing Machine Shop Photos, http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-130994-6.htm and it was long arm quilted at the quilt shop. On the picture of the machine you can see the back of this quilt. It's hard to get a good photo of this quilt, the colours always look bleached out.

    I hope you particularly like the bad join in the border by the corner.

    I've already posted another quilt, which was pieced on a vintage Singer, at http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-132615-1htm

    I always do the border as blocks rather than a continuous strip

    Muv, Your quilt is beautiful! Don't worry about that corner. I always say a quilt must have some imperfection to it for the quilt to have a feeling of life...since life is never perfect for us...why should a quilt. Thanks for posting!

    I made a crumb quilt using my Singer 201K for the piecing and a Husqvarn Viking Sapphire 875 (the new girl) for the
    machine quilting.

    1936 Singer 201K treadle, it has the hand crank on because 2 little girls were learning to sew.
