    Thank you Earthwalker. I asked DH what colors he wanted, but they were all so dark that I added in the beige. Since the back was so big, I decided to carry the rail fences over to the back too.

    Of course, I couldn't have done it without my vintage Viking which looks like its younger sister. It was a joy to use it again (it had been a while). What I'm really looking forward to is finishing our work on the Singer 127 treadle so that I can learn how to use it too. Now that is vintage!

    Ah, so many projects and so little time.

    Dorothy, your quilt looks very cozy, and I like how you incorporated the colors/design on the back! Your husband is very lucky.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Made another that has a spring theme and used some of my PP Stars. This quilt will be a gift for a friend. Machines used were Singer 201 for PP, Two Spools for piecing, Davis NVF for quilting and binding, and Necchi Supernova for the decorative stitches on binding.

    Monica, I love the stars. You are really getting good at paper piecing! Do you enjoy paper piecing? I have only tried that technique for a wall hanging. I like the way you do your backs - with a fabric from the front!

    Nancy, Thanks! I do find the PP to be fun, just that I think that I'm still wasting lots of fabric in the process of making the PP, since I sometimes miss judge the amount of fabric needed. I love carrying the theme from front to back to make the quilt look good on both sides.

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Oh lovely, vintagemotif. I really like the double line quilting that you did and the echo quilting of the stars really makes them pop. Well done.
