    I made the same wallhanging as my first ever project six years ago! I made it for a gift for my aunt who has given us several quilts over the years. Being my "first", it has lots of imperfections...but she was really tickled with it and still has it up in her sewing area at our lake cottage in Indiana.

    WOW!! I LOVE it! I think you did a GREAT job. AND, you actually followed the directions, unlike me. ;)

    I wondered what to do with show pins! The Dallas Quilt Show is this weekend. Hoping to attend tomorrow. Guess I will need a pin since I have fabric and pattern to make my sewing room wall hanging.
    Learn something from every topic on this board it seams (seems).

    Love it. I'm making a featherweight sewing machine cozy with a pattern I found on FatCat Designs. You have inspired me to get busy on it again.

    Nice wall hanging and machine. My DD made this same one for me about 18 years ago. It is a classic pattern for us sewists. Was it you that was having trouble understanding the instructions on the HST in Debbie Mumm's patterns?

    What a great idea! I may have to make another one for myself!

    Yep, I believe the pattern was incorrect, so I just fixed it.

    For those who are interested in the pattern: http://heartlandtreasuresks.com/All-...-P1425484.aspx

    I have one, too. I thought they were the same, but mine is dated 1914. Works great! I love treadling!

    I love the wallhanging. You did a beautiful job. But I have not heard of a Davis machine. I bet before the evening is over though I am sure that I will be doing some major googling. Your machine is nothing less than spectacular.

    Very nice quilt, and such a wonderful old machine. You must enjoy sewing on it.
