    I post pictures of what I do specifically to help give others ideas. And if someone likes and wants to copy - Go For It!

    I get so many ideas from what others do and show too - that is why this board is where I spend so much time.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    I 'm still working slowly on my ORL quilt top nearly done, life has had many turns lately.
    I'm so envious of all the lovely finished quilts shown. I think we all need a good pat on the back for the wonderful work we have put forth.

    I am so impressed at the finished and nearly finished tops That have been posted recently! I’m still in turtle mode- now hav 40 blocks completed, but had to put it on hold in order to meet some deadlines...may get some more work done on it next month if things slow down around here.... I agree with what others have said about sharing ideas- that’s what I love about this board.

    Auntjo: Love it!
    Kalama: You did amazing
    CharmedinMO: Beautiful!
    Rob: You will get there.

    Waltonalice: Since it is for personal use only (wedding gift) you can do what you like with whatever is out there. If you claim the idea as your own or resale with your name only, then that is a copyright infringement. Give credit where due and you are good to go. This applies to quilt shows as well. There are lots of kits being entered in the larger quilt shows that have to be stated where they originated from. If you put just your name on it as an original design, it will be disqualified and that is a copyright infringement. Just my two cents to the subject.

    Hello all ... slow poke checking in.


    Everyone's finishes look fantastic!!

    I finished my re-design in EQ. Swapped the shaded 4 patch units for an aqua/brown/brown/neutral 4 patch. I'm in the process of making these now.

    I did go ahead and put three blocks together with my 4 patch units to see how they look and I like the look. Still not sure what color I will use for the cornerstone in the chevron sashing.

    Have not even thought about borders yet, but I doubt I will use the aqua borders. Thinking neutral strings ..... and then finishing it with another border around it to bring it to generous Queen.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    My Ringo

    Finally finished! I thought On Ringo Lake was difficult and slow to put together, especially the sashing. It will be sent out to be long armed quilted with a pantograph.

    Such a lovely finish. I just love it. Another finish to debate if I want to copy. Thank-you for the share.

    Fyi, this is VQW weekend.

    Avgquiltr, beautiful quilt and wonderful border.

    Oh, I forgot that this weekend is the VQW! I think I'm going to try to get to the point that I can finish putting all the blocks during the VQW. In other words, I'm starting today

    I finally have all the blocks sewn. It is now set aside for a bit - I have been in weaving mode and a vintage circular sock machine followed me home a couple of weeks ago:-) I do love playing with new toys and there has been a bit of a learning curve.

    Ah, so that's what you have been up to, Theresa! I wondered where you were Your ORL blocks are so pretty and coordinated. They are going to make a beautiful quilt.

    A vintage sock machine! How cool is that? How does it work? Do you crank the handle to make the stitches? That looks like so many stitches, I guess you have to use pretty fine yarn? Sorry for all the questions, I'm just fascinated!

    I just finished all my boom swap blocks yesterday, so now to put all that mess away (all the fabrics and audition fabric that didn't make it all the paper templates made for the blocks etc...) and hopefully get back to work on Ringo's Sister.

    Wow, avgquiltr...your BH mystery quilt is fabulous. Great job! I hope you will post another photo after it has been quilted...I always love a piano key border.

    tcsweaves, your quilt is coming along wonderfully. I’m sure you will be delighted when it’s finished.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Yes, you set up what is called a cast-on bonnet and just crank away. As with quilting and weaving, there is another language to learn:-) Hey, that means I am finally bilingual, I can speak weaving, basic quilting, and csm. LOL I have never understood knitting yarn sizes, but so far I have knit with sock yarn and 2 strands of 2/9 wool. The learning curve has been an interesting combination of fun and frustration, but I keep going back for more. I have also been playing on my latest sewing machine which is a Singer 99 handcrank. These vintage machine are just fascinating to me. They were such an amazing breakthrough in technology for the time and had to ease that huge burden of handwork on the average family. Just think of the wonder to be able to crank out a pair of socks in an hour or so verses handknitting them. Too cool
