    Nancy, no it's regular cotton. Your log cabin came out great. I just scrolled up a bit and saw I missed your posting. Did you FMQ it on your frame?

    Yes, I have to admit I did the FM on the frame! It was pieced with my FW mostly in the Strip Therapy sessions at Shared Stitches. The rows were put together, borders pieced and sewn on, and binding made with my 319w in treadle. The only thing I used 'modern' was the long arm for quilting. I am not as fast at FM nor as good as you are; and, I had to get this quilt done as we are doing one a month. That Curved Log Cabin was the February quilt. I have the March one done too, but not quilted yet. I try to get them quilted before I take a photo. I am starting the April one tomorrow evening at Shared Stitches. They are doing Strip Therapy every Wednesday evening!

    Candace, I love the Christmas quilt you just finished. Your SIL will be very happy to receive it as a Christmas gift.

    Thanks:>

    And Nancy, I'm jealous of your frame! I want a longarm badly. Only need the space and the money! That's not too much to ask, right??

    This will be fun to see your quilt each month. That's a lot of work. I'll be here to cheer you on!!! Looking forward to your March quilt.

    Here is a little Monthly Mini I just finished! All the decorative stitches on the eggs were done with my Rocketeer, 503a, while sitting at the kitchen counter so I could watch TV with DH.

    Here is a table runner that I made about two years ago after purchasing my first vintage machine Singer 15-91 (the 15-91, now belongs to my daughter). I had this as my Easter display last year; it's an East meets West Spring theme. This year, I have a runner on table that my daughter made. I'm planning to quilt it using my Davis NVF.

    The bunny was fabric from a purse that I cut up to use in this runner. Since the purse was never used, I just recycled the fabric.

    Nancy, the eggs are just too cute! Love all the bright colors.

    Vintagemotif, I really like how you echoed the fabric pattern with quilting little flowers.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Thank you everyone!

    Candace I bought my long arm off of Craigslist. The lady that had bought the machine new, never even set it up. She was so intimidated by the whole thing! It does take up a lot of space - over 10' long and sticks out from the wall about 50"s - that is the only thing bad about a long arm - I could get a lot more treadles in my sewing room if that machine were not there! Anyway, I got it from this lady who had never used it - so it was virtually a new machine! I paid half of what she had paid in the first place as I saw the receipts!

    Monica, I love the rabbit ears! The quilting continuing the flower motif is really nice. That really adds to your quilt! Love it!

    Nancy

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I bet your GD will love it. YOu hand quilted it too...wow!

    Nancy, I'm coveting the Innova badly, so will wait until I can afford it. Just had to write the tax man a huge check, so the near future isn't likely:<

    Jane, I love your quilt! Great job for second quilt! The batik fabric with the iris is very pretty. Lovely work with the embroidery signature block!

    Jane what a lucky GD! My Mother loved purple and so do I. Great job - love the color! I am very impressed with your hand quilting - I don't do that!

    Candace the Innova is the one I wanted too, but I just couldn't afford it! I found this ad on Craigslist a couple years ago for a unopened HQ 16 for only $4500. I had to buy it! It had never even been taken out of the box and the table was brand new too! I saw her original receipts for the table, poles, machine, it had cost that lady almost $10000 a couple years before - and she put it in the garage. She never even opened it up! So how could I 'not' buy it? Anyway, I was tired of crawling around on my hands and knees for 2 - 4 hours hand pinning a queen/king sized quilt. My DH was tired of it too! Once they were pinned, though, I did really enjoy the machine quilting - but, it took me a month because I only worked on each quilt for an hour or so a day!

    I know there are women who buy expensive gadgets and never use them. Just floors me. I want the 22 or 26" one and am going to make DS buy some lotto tickets with the spare change the tax man left me:>

    Here are two of my treadle machine quilts I"ve done this winter...love the treadle. so relaxing. I didn't machine quilt them with the treadle...too much stopping and starting. the first one is the 10/minute block, the second my box of strips. (didn't even put a dent in it) LOL

    Linda, I love them both - but, especially the second one! That sashing is so rich looking and I love the really bright colors from your scraps! Are they both table toppers? You did a wonderful job!

    Great quilts. I especially like the 2nd one. It's so bright and happy. :-)

    Linda those are very pretty and inspire to use my Redeye when it's back together. I like the piano key border.

    All you ladies that have vintage machines....why do you prefer them for making quilts? I have never had a vintage machine so am asking in case I would want to get one,.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.
