    Finally finished my scrappy quilt. Front side is a modified Jacob's Ladder and back side is the pixel heart. I pieced on my Two Spools, quilted with the Davis NVF, attached binding with Davis NVF, and finished off binding with decorative stitching using my Singer 328k in treadle.
    Monica I love that quilt!! Great work.

    Love the baseball theme....my DH made a Dodger's themed quilt for a friend of ours baby, and now I have tons of baseball fabs in our stash!! My DH doesn't just buy what he needs for a quilt...he buys whatever he can find in the theme he's going to do, and then decides which ones to use. So....my cup runneth over with sports and cars themed fabrics!! LOL

    Cute quilt, Melinda. I love that pattern....I use the D9P a lot because it looks so different depending on the fabrics.

    She is my favorite treadle machine followed by the Singers 15-90 and 66-1.

    Sew nest to the diagonal mark on each side of the mark 1/4 in.
    Cut right down the diagonal mark of each square
    You should have a total of 8 squares?
    I think you can make the little square the place to start or not - it would be up to you.
    I believe I would want them all the same no matter what.
    It seems like it would be fancy without a lot of work.
    I wonder if it would have to be squared up later?
    I actually think they called this Next Generation Disappearing 9 Patch...or something similar. I saw it on the Board somewhere. Don't quote me on that name...it's that or something similar.

    Have you posted your husband's quilt? I would love to see that. You could to an "I Spy" quilt with all the sports fabrics.

    Sharon, I have to ask, Is that cotton shoved into that wall hole? You need to make a pretty small quilt to cover that hole.

    I'm a lifelong Dodgers fan, I made myself a "Big Shirt"(Cindy Taylor-Oates pattern) from LA Dodgers fabric. Sorry I don't have a picture of it, I was much larger then...have erased all those embarrassing pictures.

    I'll put a wall hanging over that hole, made by my then teenage DS; its got batting stuffed in it. It used be his bedroom, now houses my treadle machines.

    Since I got my Singer 301 I make all my quilts on it, just seems like they turn out so pretty and don't seem to have the problems that I had before I got her. That gentle purr just makies me want to sew and sew!! I have 4 other sewing machines but "Agie Pearl" is my "go to" girl. I think my mom, (her name was Agnes Pearl) who was a fabulous sewer/quilter is watching over me and Agie. Thanks mom!!!!!
