    Don't you just LOVE your 301??? I love my black one, named Ida after my maternal grandmother. I think they are just the coolest looking machines, so "retro", sleek and sexy!! LOL

I finished the binding using my 1222e Pfaff.

    Wow, Nancy, gorgeous quilt!! I would have thought the FW would move around a bit while you were wresting that big quilt top through it. No? Anyway, love the batiks and the colors!! VERY NICE!!

    I pieced this LC with my Free treadle, the first I've used a treadle, lots of fun!Attachment 319821
    Very nice log cabin! Love the scrappy look. I hope to one day soon have a quilt completely done on my 15 in treadle....soon, I promise!!

    Cute wall hanging, Trish. I have a black 301, also, and just LOVE it! I use it primarily for piecing at home, but sometimes take it to outside activities. People always come to look at it, because it's kind of unusual. Not a FW, black, small....they want to know about it.

    Thank you guys! I am in a Strip Therapy club at the local quilt store. I have another strip quilt almost finished using a different FW - I try to rotate my FW's so they all get used and cleaned! I am also taking my mocha 301 to classes, but I need to order the acrylic table to give me more space when I use the 301!

    Bennett, I am sorry to say I did not do the quilting on a vintage machine. I did the quilting on my HQ 16 - the only 'new' machine to touch that quilt! Janice, there is no way I would have tried to FM with a FW - you are right it would not have been an easy task to do! I do FM with my 15-88 and a couple other machines, but since I am trying to get a Queen sized quilt done once a month, I had to just get this one done - so I cheated on the quilting and used a long arm!

    Candace, I am just not as good at FM nor as fast as you are - hence, in a pinch I use the long arm!

    Trish - Your wall hanging is great fun - you definitely improved the design, your dolls are much better proportioned.

    Nancy - Lovely log cabin, and I can't believe how fast you are!

    Nancy, love your log cabin. The colors are so bright and cheerful.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    This is one of a pair of quilts I'm working on for more babies. My manager and her partner are having a little boy and a little girl, and they did the nursery in a Finding Nemo theme. I found a picture of a cute fish quilt done in strings and this is what I came up with. This is the girl's. The boy's will be the same pattern, just more of a true blue background with greens, oranges, and yellows in the fish. Since there are a lot of seams and some bulk that would be hard to work around, I'm thinking of quilting in gently waving vertical lines. Nothing too difficult or involved to compete with the fish. The tops are being pieced on my FW and will probably be quilted on the 15-91. Added fun, can you find the mistake? I didn't until it was all put together.

    Took me a bit, but I finally see it! In fact...it took me several looks to find it! I love it!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    I saw that but I didn't think it counted as a mistake
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
    good mothers let you lick the beaters - great mothers turn it off first

    Bennett, I didn't see it till you pointed it out! I bet no one else would have thought that was mistake until you pointed it out either! Very cute little quilt; and, ya know unless we point out our mistakes 99 % of people would never have known it! We are always our own worst critics!

    Bennett, I didn't spot it, and looking at it now I wouldn't call it a mistake. It's a variation in the design and it gives the quilt character. It's great fun, a lovely little quilt.

    Or a variation of nature. God's work at best!!! No two are exactly alike, which is the beauty of it all.

    Here's one I finished last night. It's an early Christmas gift for my SIL that will get tucked away. It's pieced and FMQ on my 301.

    Beautiful! I like that it's Christmas colors without being overtly Christmas fabric. What a great find for the material and pretty finish.

    Candace, I love it! Are those all flannels????? It looks like a flannel quilt, but I can't remember if Moda does flannels! What a comfy quilt to wrap up in! You have a lucky SIL!

    Sweetpee, we would love to help you but need to know what machine you are talking about? Can you go to the Vintage Shop and ask this question - and, give us a little more information. Are you talking about a 301? This is the quilt photo shop, please go to the Vintage shop and ask away! We all want to help!
