    MUV, again another pretty quilt from you! For the seams you may want to try ironing them open. I once read of a quilter that preferred that method over the ironing to one side the seams together method. Although, I can't recall her reason for using this method, but it could be for the quilting.

    Muv, amazing quilting with treadle! A lovely doll quilt, too.

    I pieced this LC with my Free treadle, the first I've used a treadle, lots of fun!Name:  Late 2011-Early 2012 170 (Small).jpg

    Jillnjo, Your log cabin looks to a a scrappy quilt. Very cheery and pretty! It is fun using the treadles! Very nicely done. Thanks for Sharing!

    Bennett, great baby boy's quilt!

    Muv, I love the doll quilt. Isn't it fun to quilt with a 15! I love to use my 15-88 for FM - in fact, that is all I use that machine for!

    Nancy great log cabin lap quilt! I have used my Free #5 for piecing too, although, not so much now a days as I use either my Eldredge Two Spools, or my 319w! But, I still love my Free #5, a great machine to use!

    Nancy

    Ps I think I already told you Monica, that your stars are just exquisite!

    Jillnjo - love the log cabin! Using blue for the centre squares is really effective. Piecing a log cabin on a treadle is definitely on my list of things to do... Why does my list get longer every time I look at this thread?

    The QB is a dangerous site! I started a couple of BOM that I thought I would only watch. I find it fun to see the quilts made with vintage machine along with all the quilts on the QB.

    Very pretty! Love how the scraps are all tied together with the blue.

    Thanks! I'm still trying to catch up with that BOM. I've been following the 50 Fabulous State Stars BOM. I'm thinking of using groups of three or five stars to a quilt.

    I added 3 borders to this quilt panel and pieced the backing for it, too, using my Singer 301 that I've named "Beyonce"...because it is a caramel-colored Singer with beautiful moves!

    BTW, nice job on your Blues/Whites quilt.

    Does a Featherweight that my bought in the 1960's qualify as vintage? If so, I make ALL my quilts on it. My DH keeps trying to buy me a new ("fancy") machine but I just want this little gem!

    Billy always told us anything from the 1970's back is vintage! So post those quilts!

    Absolutely your machine is vintage! I consider "vintage" to be a matter of opinion! LOL For sewing machines? Anything before 1990...for people? Let's not go there!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Trish I love the little quilt! I think the quilted hearts add a lot to the quilt too! The little applique'd dolls are really cute - you did a great job!

    Here is my latest quilt. I just finished this quilt tonight. It is 85x97 - a curved log cabin strip quilt. I did most of the piecing for this quilt with my 1935 featherweight in a Strip Therapy class at the local quilt store. The borders and bindings were done using my 319w from 1955 - in the treadle. I finished the binding using my 1222e Pfaff.

    Trish, your Raggedies are very cute! Reminds me of a Raggedy Ann doll I still have from when I was little.
    Nancy, the curved log cabin is wonderful. Batiks are always so rich looking. Did you do the quilting with a vintage machine too?
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!
