    Every once in a while it is good just to browse back through this - aren't those vintage machines nice!!! They do just about anything!
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I've been scrolling through all these wonderful machines and beautiful quilts & thought I'd share a little! My go-to machine that I make everything on is my 32 year old riccar that is a hand-me-down from my mum. I don't think it qualifies as antique but it's certainly vintage! Halfway through making this quilt it took ill & had to go off to the sewing machine hospital so I switched to my 'spare', my late grandmother's pfaff 30, which I think is early 1950's. I'm pretty sure it hasn't had so much as a service in the 20 years my mum & I have had (actually, maybe I should get on that...) it but it still works perfectly. The quilt is log cabin blocks made of 30's fabrics from a jelly roll with others added from stash, hand quilted. And the happy ending is my riccar was saved after a good service & now works perfectly again, hopefully it will for many years to come!

    Hi and welcome! Your quilt is very pretty. Wow! Lots of work went into making the log cabins blocks for this pinwheel quilt. Most folks these days just use solid fabrics for their pinwheel quilts, but I love the look of your quilt with the log cabin blocks set into a pinwheel pattern, since it adds to the vintage look. Nicely done!

    It's hard to really tell the scale, but those pieces look pretty narrow. Beautiful effect with the pinwheels/log cabin.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Thankyou! Each half a log cabin is made of one jelly roll strip cut in half lengthwise, ie 2 1/2", so the finished width of each strip is 3/4". Once I got into the swing of the strip piecing they came together really quickly. I can't remember the overall size but it's on my double bed!

    Finally finished another baby quilt. I told the girls at work if anyone else becomes pregnant, I'm putting all their names in a hat and having a raffle. I can't keep up! (Currently have 4 babies on the way there, plus this one).

    It's pretty! Looks to be a scrappy with half squares. I love this layout!

    I finally completed the Christmas quilt that gave me a headache when I used the spray baste. After numerous washings of all the materials to remove the chemicals from the spray baste, I hand basted and machine quilted. I used my Singer 15-90 for the FM quilting and Davis NVF for the straight stitch quilting. I'm glad this quilt is done.

    Most recent quilt top made with my 1957 Singer Featherweight 222 k

    The pattern for this quilt is a feedsack pattern that I found in an old quilting magazine. The centre portion of the quilt top is the original design I have added the borders to make it a queen size topper. My Singer Featherweight is a dream to sew my tops with especially when we are on the road in the fifth wheel because I do not have to worry about a computerized machine getting messed up with the bouncing on the road.

    The Christmas twister is cute! Too bad it was so difficult to get through the quilting. I'm glad you got it all out and finished it, because it turned out really nice.

    Tricky, your quilt is like looking through a lattice wall into a garden, very pretty. The gold makes it seem that much richer/lush.

    Thanks Bennett!

    Tricky, I agree that it's like looking through a lattice wall into a garden. I love the colors, fabrics, and pattern.
    You did a very nice job!

    So many great quilts since I last looked in, really inspiring, and great to see another member from England - Hello Victoriaplum!!

    Here's my latest offering, another miniature quilt, pieced on my 1913 Serata treadle, and the writing, applique and binding done on my 1927 Singer 99K hand machine. I made it for the January doll quilt swap, which had the theme "Show me where you are from." I couldn't resist turning it into a quiz, so if you go to the thread Doll Quilt Quiz in the pictures section you can see if you can crack the riddle!

    Tricky, your garden quilt is lovely. I have been looking for a pattern for Asian fabrics for a GS. That one might work.

    Muv, I can't imagine doing a minature. Your work is so special. Is it Africa?

    Wolverhampton England motto is "out of darkness cometh light". The button is for Button Gwinnett; English born and lived in Wolverhampton with wife before moving America. He became an American political leader and representative of Georgia to the Continental Congress. He was the second of the signatories ( the first signature on the left) on the United States Declaration of Independence.

    Your button on the left symbolizes Button Gwinnett's signature on the left of the Declaration of Independence.
    The smoke stacks of Wolverhampton during the Industrial Revolution are in your quilt. And on the right is the quill (quill pen) that Gwinnett would have used for his signature.

    You once lived in Wolverhampton area.

    Hello Vintagemotif - you got it!

    I've put more about the quilt on the Doll Quilt Quiz thread. There is a link there to a quick video, which should be of interest to all Americans, and Georgians in particular!
