    I added 3 borders to this quilt panel and pieced the backing for it, too, using my Singer 301 that I've named "Beyonce"...because it is a caramel-colored Singer with beautiful moves!

    BTW, nice job on your Blues/Whites quilt.

    Does a Featherweight that my bought in the 1960's qualify as vintage? If so, I make ALL my quilts on it. My DH keeps trying to buy me a new ("fancy") machine but I just want this little gem!

    Billy always told us anything from the 1970's back is vintage! So post those quilts!

    Here is a picture of a wall hanging my daughter e mailed to me and said "Mom can you make this?" So next picture is my version of her picture. Made this using my 1951 Black 301 machine.

    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Absolutely your machine is vintage! I consider "vintage" to be a matter of opinion! LOL For sewing machines? Anything before 1990...for people? Let's not go there!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
