    I'm starting a thread where everyone can show off their beautiful creations made by using their vintage/antique sewing machines.

    I got bitten by the vintage sewing machine bug last summer, which was about the same time I started quilting again after an extremely long hiatus from that hobby.

    So, here is one very simple quilt that I made using a Davis New Vertical Feed, a walking foot machine.

    I make all my quilts using my vintage machine, but there are too many photos to post.

    BTW, nice job on your Blues/Whites quilt.

    I had hoped to use a treadle machine for some old fashioned quilting, but hubby couldn't get it working... so.. he bought me a NEW machine... I love it, but still would have liked to use a treadle some.

    Am snowed under now with other projects to get started and finished before Christmas...

    Thank you for starting this thread.

    A lot of my sewing is done on my 1975 Bernina Record 830. I will post some photos later. Guess I will have to crank on my handcranks and treadles to show sewing with those vintage machines. LOL. I guess that what I am saying is that your thread will work as an inspiration for me. Thanks. :-D

    Here is a Christmas table topper made with scrappy fabrics. The machine used was a Singer 201k in treadle.
