    Thanks for sharing. Glad you got the room for your treadles. The 201s are one of the best vintage machines!!!

I think my mom, (her name was Agnes Pearl) who was a fabulous sewer/quilter is watching over me and Agie. Thanks mom!!!!!
    Please post your quilts that you make with your 301 here on this thread. It's fun seeing the projects that others do using their vintage machines! Enjoy your Agie Pearl!!

    AnnieRose, my 1956 301 has finished another. She has two more in the making now. Here is her Carpenter Star from last month.

    Great colors, and the quilting is nice and intricate! I'm not brave enough yet to try more than stippling or straight lines.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Five vintage machines went to work to help me make this quilt.
    Piecing was done with Eldredge Two Spools and Singer 201.
    Purple decorative stitching with Singer 328K in treadle.
    Quilting and attaching binding with Davis NVF.
    Decorative stitching to finish off binding with Singer 401A, the only electric machine used.
    This was a "quilt as you go" project. Front of quilt.

    Oh my goodness - all those big quilts taking shape! I've been seriously sidetracked by the doll quilt swaps, all part of the learning process for when I do my first big quilt quilted at home. I am studying all your quilts for inspiration...

    In the meantime, here is my second doll quilt for November, just the same as the last one but with the lights and darks reversed.

    I love this doll quilt! Working with half square is always fun and interesting with the many ways the look of the arrangement takes. Plus, one can use up scraps and put together a quilt rather quickly, depending on the size of the half squares.

    I can't believe you've only made doll quilts--they seem so much harder to me than larger quilts. On that scale, it seems any errors would show up much more! Beautiful work.

    Vintagemotif: Very nice! A QAYG is on my to-do list. Did you piece the blocks and then quilt them to the backing and batting pieces? I've seen some that are more sew-and-flip, but yours doesn't look like that.
