    Wow Muv, neat riddle too.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Muv, what a wonderful puzzle/riddle quilt!! Love that idea. And Monica, kudos for solving the riddle. Clever girl!!

    And I also love that Christmas twister quilt. We learned that technique in November, but I haven't finished my piece yet, which is a Christmas wreath. Like I said elsewhere, when Mom had her heart attack early in December, my whole December just disappeared!! I didn't get any quilting done that whole month, and only worked to get her settled and cared for. So, hopefully I'll have 2 Christmas pieces done for next Christmas! :-)

    This is a quilt for my 4 year old grand son. He likes any thing on wheels. Made with my 301.

    Cute little trucks! Beautiful piecing on that one.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Victoria, I love the quilt you made using the Riccar and Pfaff 30!

    Bennett, what a nice baby quilt! I am usually too lazy to do all the piecing on a baby quilt so I usually do a panel! I don't know why, because I always piece queen/king sized quilts! Nice job, and what a wondeful gift!

    Monica, I am so glad you got that Christmas quilt done! It is stunning! No spray basting for me - I learn from the mistakes of others!

    And Trish, what a cute little quilt with pieced trucks! Oh my grandson would love that one! That quilt should stay with that little guy for the rest of his life!

    Nancy

    Did this today (this afternoon) using Miss Margie, the 115 I brought home yesterday! This machine is FAST! Fast enough that I had to use the ripper several times, and still see some errors! Oh well...it was good practice!
    I didn't have to cut anything other than the white borders, the batik squares were cut when I made John's quilt, and I didn't make it as large as I was going to originally.

    It's not quilted yet, of course....maybe tomorrow after work.

    It looks so spring like. Waiting to see what it looks like after you quilt it.

    Whatever I said in anger, Whatever I shouted in spite, I'm sorry I spoke so quickly--I thought of some worse ones tonight.

    Beautiful Charlee...I know what you mean about ripping...not the fault of my '50's workhorse....4 attempts at binding a string mug rug! Definitely me and not my machine

    Great batiks Charlee, love all the rich colors. My eye is drawn particularly to some of the yellows--the one with the sunflower peeking through and the sort of clam shell/fan design.

    The truck quilt was easy to make. It was all rotery cuts. Takes a little time because of th 1 1/2" pieces but easy to make. I would like to make a firetruck one too because his dad is a Vol. fireman.
    Charlee love the colors in your quilt.

    ps: I can send anyone the pattern if you want to pm me. Thanks for the compliments.

    I made a Le Moyne Star with a 1908 Minnesota A treadle from Sears and Roebuck and I'll post a picture if I can get the uploader to work.

    Here is my latest quilt top using a Brother sewing machine. Not quite vintage but it was free. So had to try it out.
    Quilt is called Love Chain. I will be hand quilting it soon.
