    My first quilt with my 201. I'm in love!

    I quilted my first quilt with the 201 I picked up in Tucson. I can't believe how smooth this machine sews.

    I did a quilt for my friend at work to take with her when she travels . . . either by air or by land.

    This is my first QTG - Quilt to Go with reversible carry bag.

    What a beautiful quilt. May I have the pattern? And the bag is a great idea. I always carry a quilt when I spend the night away from home and that is a wonderful way to transport it and keep it clean. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice! 201's are smooth stitchers. I too like the pattern. Will you share where you found the pattern or the name of it?

    Beautiful quilt, Arizona. I made one for my grandson 4 years ago as a graduation gift. The name of the pattern I used is Repeating Crosses and the book I used was 'Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns'. It's a leasure arts book I purchased abiout 10 years ago at a quilt shop. I use it all the time because it has such beautiful quilts. Here is a picture of the one I did.

    Verry nice Nanna up north. That's exactly where I got my pattern. The book WAS at JoAnn's but i haven't seen it for a while. I'll type out the directions for those who want it.

    I really like that pattern and would love to have the patten. I can see it made with military fabric, as I make alot of quilts for veterans. I don't know how to send a message, so here is my email. [email protected]
    I live in the St Louis, Mo area.

    I just finished piecing a top with my 201. I enjoy sewing on her so much but I love my choir (Singers--get it? teehee)

    Wow! that is a beautiful quilt. I brought that book to get the Sunbonnet Sue pattern for my granddaughters' quilt. I will have to go back and take a second look. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree. My 201 is heavenly to sew on....especially for FMQ!
    Life has given me so much more than scraps, but I make quilts anyway!

    I have my Mom's machine... she purchased it in 1938 when she taught sewing for Singer at their store in Ottawa, Ill...this machine is a work horse and so smooth running with a great stitch.

    Beautiful colors! They're my favorite! I bought a 201 just last week, can't wait to use it! I have to replace all the wiring before I can plug it in though. Mine is a 201-3, with the light attached to the back of the machine.
