    You guys have been up to some great projects! Very cute. I'll post one bag I finished. I actually made another one using charm squares, but didn't take pics. These were all pieced on my vintage machines. A combination of several actually and it was quilted on my Coronado. Of course all from scraps:>

    Thank you. She was quite hapy and touched that somene would take the time to make her a quilt and she adored all the butterfly fabric that is in the quilt.

    Chris, what a lovely gift for your aunt. Nice job.

    Candace, I like the colors in the bag. Your FMQ looks so good.

    Chris your Aunt looks truly touched that you made that quilt for her! Great job too!

    Candace, that bag looks just like you! Bright and cheerful! Love it! I like the way your black diagonals line up, but the rest of the stripes are catty wampus!

    Nancy, Thank you. She was touched. As a quilter herself, she had never been given a quilt until mine. Just wish there hadn't been quite so many creative design decisions which do not show up in the pictures.

    Yeah, catty wampus is a good way to describe it. I've probably FMQ'ed to the moon and back. I do own a new Bernina but cringe when people spend a fortune on a new machine, just because they want to FMQ. These old gals do a great job of it and are so much cheaper. I love my new Bernina when she's behaving, but these vintage machines will FMQ along with the expensive machines.

    I'm really enjoying this thread! What a joy to see so many lovely quilts of all sorts and shapes, and isn't it just great that they are all made on vintage and antique machines?

    Here's my latest project, a table runner. It was pieced on my Pfaff 1222E and then quilted on my Bernina 830 Record. I went with straight line quilting this time and used Invisafil so that the design and the anemone flowers would show up. (Besides, my FMQ isn't quite up to speed yet.)

    I made it for my friend Mary, so please don't tell her yet, OK?

    Dorothy, what a great looking table runner! Don't you love your Pfaff 1222e? I bought mine brand new in 1976 and have used it ever since! There is nothing wrong with straight lines! I do a lot of stitch in the ditch and FM, but there is a time and a place for both! Thanks for sharing.

    Dorothy, That's a very pretty runner! I love the look of just the straight stitch on this piece. Thanks for sharing with us!

    Thanks, Vintagemotif, for the kind words. I had forgotten how pesky those HST can be, so diagonal quilting was out. But the SID with Invisafil really lets the eyes enjoy the fabric and pattern ... that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    Thanks, Nancy! I've done more straight line quilting than FMQ and I agree -- they both have their place. To do it well, I need to practice a little more FMQ, but then who doesn't? And yes the 1222E is a delight to use. Love that IDT.

    totosmom, that's a very pretty pattern and the colors are lovely. My FMQ is nothing to write home about, but I much prefer it to straight line quilting. My current one has both so I am getting a reminder of which I like.

    I love my 1222 too. I pieced with it over the weekend. I always enjoy working on this machine.

    What a lovely gift! It's nice to see such a happy expression when you give something special.

    I like that even the inside is scrappy. Great job!

    I do mostly straight line quilting too, trying to make myself more comfortable with FMQ. I really like the border/backing fabric on your table runner too!
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Bennett;
    Thanks. Aunt May loved it and insisted that a picture of her and the quilt be taken and she wanted a good picture of her not just any old picture. Chris

    No wonder you made a gorgeous quilt for that delightful lady!!!

    My Mock Cathedral Window Quilt. Made with used jean material, and leftover fabrics and batting from previous quilt projects. Decorative stitching from my Singer 224, piecing from Singer 201, and binding Davis NVF.

    So much variety on here - I love them all!

    Monica - I'm very impressed with the curved seams on the colour wheel, and such lovely restful colours on the mock cathedral window quilt

    Candace - gorgeous bag - Special occasions only, surely!

    Charlee - your doll definitely has an inbuilt corset. What's her waist measurement, two and a half inches?

    Chris - Aunt May's smile says it all. What a beautiful present you made for her.

    I love your sewing machine. Thank you for including the blog site. I have been wanting to make one for my sewing room. The scissors really are cute too.

    Also, your mock cathedral windows hammock looks very inviting.
