Well not totally, since she had taken the New York Beauty block from Donna Duquette to create a color wheel. But I'll give her all credit here on the QB for designing a pretty color wheel. My center isn't exactly the same as hers, and my binding is typical of me, a decorative stitching. This was my first in using circles or curves. I found using the treadle extremely helpful for attaching the curve pieces. Paper piecing was done on a Singer 201, straight stitch quilting 201 and Davis NVF, and binding on Singer 224.

    Wow Monica, you did a great job! Love the color wheel! I have never tried paper piecing! I bet that was a fun project to do! Are you going to use it for a wall hanging or a table topper? It is stunning - I don't think I'd put it on the table! I'd put it on the wall!

    Anamaria, Thanks!

    Nancy, Thanks! It will be a put on the wall above the Free treadle cabinet that holds all the quilting notions.

    Once again, not a quilt, but the first project from Katherine, my 301! This is Victorianna... I got the pattern at one of the thrift stores for 50 cents, and will be making her a dress from patterns that I got at the same time that were designed for her.....one is a Grandmother's Fan dress, the other is a Dresden Plate dress....

    Wow, Monica, love your color wheel. What really makes it pop is your use of black and your quilting, well... and your binding and... it's great!

    Charlee, I love Victorianna. She sooo curvatious! So it seems you and Katherine are getting along just fine. Don't ya love the 301?

    Thanks! The face is part of the pattern, I traced and embroidered it. Her hair is a fine sport yarn. I can honestly say that I don't think I will EVER make another one of these dolls!! What a LOT of work she was!

    Linda, I LOVE this 301! Of course, I love all of my machines, but have to say that the 301 is everything that it's been said to be. Don't know why I waited so long to look for one, but I'm glad that it's finally in my herd!

    How cute! I like the pink ribbon accents.

    This is a mini quilt. Pattern can be found at http://charisecreates.blogspot.com/2...ilt-along.html

    The mini scissors are buttons that I found at JoAnn's. Fabrics are all scraps.

    That's adorable! Is there embroidery on the black machine? It looks like there's something there, but I can't make it out.

    Stunning minis and Wow, Charlee, what a great job you have done with the doll. Years ago, I attempted a simple doll, but it ended up looking like a zombie....maybe now I'd be more successful. Look forward to seeing the dresses....my SIL has been making bride dresses for Barbie size dolls. She found a few wedding dresses at her local market and is cutting them up.

    The mini quilt is well done and precious. Another way to honor our 'ladies'.

    Bennett, The embroidery is some pink thread running through the spool of thread. I have written on the machine Two Spools and added the Eldredge Two Spools motif to look like the decals ( see my avatar photo for that design), but it doesn't show up well on the photo. I'm going to have to find another medium to use for the ink to show on the black fabric. Here is another photo that does show some of the motif. Since the design is difficult to see against the black, it kind of reminds me of a machine waiting to get cleaned up and shined, the discovery of the hidden decals.

    Monica, this is AWESOME and I've already downloaded the pattern, thanks!!

    To get your decals to show up better, underline them in white before using your gold pen, or underline in silver before the gold.. that's how the decals are on the machines!

    Thanks Charlee! Yes, that makes sense. I will try white before using a gold pen.

    That gal's blog is a fun one to just look through. She is a very talented! I know I couldn't come up with that design, but I'm very happy and thankful that she is willing to share it. I plan to try some of her other patterns. Also the Flickr group is helpful to see what others have done with her patterns.

    Charlee that doll looks like she's from the same era as that 301! Love it!

    Monica, what a cute mini quilt! I thought those were 'real' scissors until you said they are a button!

    Aunt May's quilt

    I am finally posting something on here even though I use my 301 for all my quilting. I just forget to take pictures before gifting them. It is a quilt that I made for my great-aunt May who is also a quilter herself and was so touched and moved by my gift. This is a picture of the front. She loves pink and butterflies although the cornerstones are cat fabric because she also loves cats.
    The 2nd photo is my great-aunt with the quilt. The 3rd photo is the back and yes it's rotated to show the correct view of the back because it was held up sideways. My girlfriend off this board, Sandra, also helped me with the quilt.
