    Once again, lovely! I really enjoy seeing your quilts. (I think I found about 3 fabrics I have in my stash somewhere).

    Bennett, I'm always fascinated by the way some of the vintage machines are threaded. The first time I threaded my Two Spools I thought is this really going to stitch...boy was I surprised! Just another reason to collect vintage machines, the mechanics.

    Thanks! It's fun seeing folks quilts to see if you have the same fabrics.

    Justtrish, Start using that FW now! Forget about trying to learn the feet at this point in time and just start using your machines. Most likely the foot that is on the machine is the foot that you need to use for piecing. Have Fun!

    Nice! I like the bottom one. I have one as a key catcher that I made years ago (not on a vintage machine, though).

    Are you referring to my quilt? I will be posting the finished quilt on the thread "Quilts made using vintage machines".
    But for now, you can take a peek by clicking on my name, then up pops a box, click on visit homepage, and that will redirect you to my blog where you can see the quilt top. This heart will only be the center of the quilt back. I have to add more fabrics to the back. So, later this week I should have a picture of the finished back posted on my blog.
