    REally like your Crumbs. I also have 301 but it is at my friends house so I don't have to take it back and forth. Don't you love your 301!

    I've fallen in love with my 301 now that I've finally gotten the tension assembly all adjusted properly. I have a herd of vintage machines.

    Okay, you lost me here with "DGD was home and she can help me". I remember you telling us during one of the chats on the Vintage Machine Shop thread that you had rescued a quilt, that you were cleaning it up, and that you would be posting pictures of the quilt very soon. When I saw your post here today, I thought of that quilt and wondered if you got the picture posted on the QB. I would love to see that quilt!

    I think I need an urban dictionary to help me with some of these acronyms/initialism.

    The machine that started my love of using vintage machines with treadles, a Singer 66-1 with Lotus decals. This baby quilt is the first quilt that I made by treadle power. The pattern is from Moda. I pieced, quilted, and attached the binding with this machine.

    Muv, your quilt is so beautiful. I love the soft colors.

    Sharon W, LOVE your quilt with the bright colors. What pattern did you use? It looks like a variety of log cabins. LC are one of my favorite blocks.

    Vintagemotif, your pinwheel quilt is very pretty. Wow, on your Singer 66-1 with lotus decals. Gorgeous!

    :-D

    I also like to use the Plain Spoken pattern by Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle found in their book The Modern Quilt Workshop.
    You can either free motion quilt (I like to use my Singer 15-90 in treadle for this) or straight-stitch quilt (which is quick and simple on even Singer 66-1). I'm presently working on a Plain Spoken that is quilted just using the straight-stitch. I'll post photos of the finished quilt.

    I am currently piecing 2 quilts of valor with my black Singer 301. She's sewing wonderfully since she's had her top tension reset.

    My Singer 201K is from 1953. I'm so surprised as to how smooth and quiet this machine sews. Not even my daughter's Janome sews this way.

    I recently found a Singer 401A. I plan to make a baby quilt using the 401A and my FW. I'm planning to do some piecing with the FW and then the quilting and binding work with the 401A. I always finish off my bindings with some type of decorative stitch since I attach the bindings by machine. A great way to hide the unevenness of the finished machine binding work (at least for me it is. since I can never get it to be perfect on both sides). Anyhow, I'm looking forward to playing with the decorative stitches on the 401. That machine runs very nicely too!

    I have my mother's old machine, a Featherweight 221. I made a table runner for myself and some pic's of my Mom that I gave my 3 brothers for Christmas 2 years ago. She was also an avid knitter so I used some of her knitting needles to use as the hangers.

    This is my table runner

    Ruth,

    That is such a wonderful gift and clever idea! I love the fabrics that you picked and the knitting needle is very original. And your table runner is gorgeous!
    Thanks for posting this!

    Great post. I enjoy seeing pictures of people that are doing the actual quilting on the vintage machines too. I am just starting to dabble into using the vintage machines for piecing Singer FW both black and white, singer 401, Singer 301 two tone, Bernina 830 (mechanical) and I am trying to work with the singer 15-91 for the actual quilting. My husband paper pieces on the Singer 301 Mocah. I have a Singer Red Eye treadle head and a Singer 201 that is right now set up in the treadle cabinet. My goal this summer is to make a simple quilt on a treadle. I am still learning to cordinate so the tread still breaks frequently.

    Singer Red Eye all fixed up. Right now I have a Singer 201 in the treadle as it has a reverse, bigger throat opening and sews smooth as butter.

    Anna,
    Those quilt tops are handsome! Both are nicely done, and I really love the brown one with the stars-nice pattern. I love seeing everyone's work that they have done using vintage machines! I'm always surprised at how beautifully these elderly machines stitch! Please post photos of your husbands paper-piecing when all is finished!

    Thank you Purplefiend for the link for the crumbs blocks. That is a great idea. I have so many little pieces that I don't want to throw away. Most of them are brights, like yours.
