    That's the fun part of making this type of quilt. Looking through all the scraps and remembering which quilt the fabrics were used in.
    This is a modified Jacob's Ladder quilt that I still need to make the back and quilt.

    I sewed a quilt for my little man - Wilbur is 2 on Monday. He LOVES to wear button down plaid shirts. I used 9 shirts and made a 9 patch, cut them in half and re arranged. I hand tied this one. It was sewed on my little Spartan.

    I hope Wilbur likes it. Those were some of his grandpa's old shirts and one or two thrown in for color. Sorry I can't get the full picture on here. I'll try one more time. It failed again.

    I like the split 9 patch pattern, easy to do but everyone thinks it looks complicated. The plaids make it look warm and cozy.

    Reversible Christmas/Fall lap quilt, Singer FW and 15-91

    I'm making this for a co-worker as a present for his wife. I don't usually do theme quilts, and I've never done one that was patterned on both sides. The original plan was to quilt in a cross hatch diamond pattern, but I kind of like the straight lines. Any opinions either way? The piecing was done on my FW, quilting on the 15-91.

    Wilbur's quilt - made from (DH) grandpa's old shirts. 2 year old Wilbur is VERY opionated - likes to wear shirts like grandpa wears - won't wear the kind that go over the head. Sewed it on my Spartan.

    Not-so-disappearing 9 patch

    I made this quilt for the lady who practically gave me a Kenmore over the weekend. I did FMQ it on my vintage Monarch 15 Clone, so it is somewhat vintage related. The lady's daughter is having a baby Wednesday, and wanted a black, pink, and zebra quilt. I will deliver it to her tomorrow.Name:  finishedzebra.jpg

    Thank you. I actually did the FMQ with one continuous thread, instead of any breaks or restarts. I was quite proud. The back is the hot pink but satin, so it will be soft on the baby.

    We gave it to our little man, Wilbur, for his 2nd birthday yesterday. He looked at it for one second, hugged the quilt and shouted BOO! BOO! (blue) Blue is his favorite color. He's been using a pink floral quilt..... He has 3 older sisters.... and a brother due in another month.

    I can only make two. The nine patch and I found how to make it disappear so I tried it on a couple. Yours is very nice.

    yes, I like that little bugger - it is very simple and straight forward. No light though. I need to do something about that soon. It shares the same bobbin as my 403 which I LOVE. I think I'm keeping that one.

    Does anyone know about a Kenmore 177.20 ? Just fell into my lap yesterday free.... It is in a nice cabinet, but the machine itself is dusty and in need of a good cleaning. The wheel and the needle is moving so hope I can save it.
