    Jane what a beautiful quilt! I love those two color quilts - black and red are really nice together. What is the New 160 Anniversary you used for quilting? I really like the little flower you embroidered on the label with your information - what a really special touch to add to the quilt! How cool that the blocks are all so different - did you design the quilt? There is one block with one small black square set off center in the block, one block with floating triangles, one with upside down trees -- really cool trying to figure out each block!

    All of my quilts are made on vintage machines, namely my Singer 401A, and then either hand quilted or machine quilted on my Bernina Record 830 from the '70's.

    And the pieced back. The appliqued flower in the middle of the strip is the label.
    I have yet to make a complete quilt on my FW...

    Monica, I'd love to see your Necchi some day. I would love to see how you use the adjustable throat plate. I think it's so cool. Don't you just love how PP makes all your points perfect? It came out very nice!

    I'm a sucker for red, white and black quilts.

    That's a very "SPRING" like quilt. I've always heard such great things about the vintage 830's.

    Happyquiltmom, you did a beautiful job on your quilt and I love the way you incorporated your label on the back. I also love doing free motion quilting on my Bernina Record 830 from the 70s. I am its original owner. Somehow I can get the most natural rhythm with it.

    The cherry blossoms reminded me of springtime in DC, so I got the kit and will be making it with a few modifications.

    Nancy, thank you for your kind words. I'm just happy that DH likes it!
    Dorothy is that the Tossed 9 Patch or Disappearing 9 Patch pattern for that quilt? It sure looks like it, but disguised with the squiggly quilting lines that give it a more curvy look. I like it, especially the colors in the fabrics. Very spring-y!!

    Love your stars, Monica!!
