    Here is a quilt my DGD age 11 made on one of my machines the 319. Also used her own machine that was made in the late 50's or early 60's. DGD is going to enter it in the WV State Fair this year, she did all the sewing and I did the cutting.

    That is so cute! I can't wait until my niece gets old enough for me to try to get her quilting. :D

    This is a baby quilt I made for her out of the scraps from her mother's and father's old jeans. Her dad likes to draw freehand designs and there was a pair where he had drawn in ink pen on his jeans. Makes it extra special for her. It does have a thin batting and flannel backing, nice and heavy and durable. It was made entirely on my 15-91 with no problems. Love that machine!

    I love the baby blanket you made for your niece. The way you quilted it is very clever. The drawing will be priceless to her when she is older, I am sure. :-D

    I like this jean quilt! Clever using the parents' jeans. Singer 15-91 are wonderful machines to quilt with.

    Apron made with a 1889 Singer VS2 treadle. I made three aprons with these fabrics as party favors for some of the moms that I knew who love to cook.

    You should give your Singer VS2 a try! You would be surprised at how pretty a straight-stitch it makes. At least, I was surprised with my machine. It produces a beautiful top stitch on both sides of this reversible apron. My only other machine that makes such a beautiful stitch top and bottom is my Singer 201. The aprons were a fun and quick diversion from making quilts. Thanks!

    The only thing I've actually managed to finish in the past year is a nursery set for my youngest granddaughter. Very simple, but fun to make, sewn on my 201K treadle and Davis VF. I call this the "It's Good Enough" quilt--all except for the bumper pad, which is referred to as "Almost (But Not Quite) Good Enough".

    Oh Miz Johnny! That is an adorable set! I love the sunflowers and the critters on the mobile.

    Okay here is my contribution to the thread, all of these were done on a treadle and that is the only type of machines that I will use.

    I only started quilting late last year, but all the quilts I have finished have been on vintage electric machines. I haven't remastered the treadle yet - it's been at least 55 years since I sewed on one. The quilt I'm currently working on is a shared effort by the 301 and a Necchi from the 40s.

    Nice looking quilts, Billy. You seem to like color as much as I do.

    Miz Johnny, those flowers for the mobile are a neat idea, so cute too.

    Billy, all the quilts look so cozy, but I too like the stripes best, lots to look at and enjoy in those kinds of quilts.

    Irishrose, love the colors in the purple one, it really pops!

    Some more items made on my 15-91. The first has to be one of my favorite quilts, a string pieced spiderweb made for a baby boy. I used the directions off Bonnie Hunter's website.

    The second is a washable duster made from left over flannel and some old nightgowns. (After washing it gets really fuzzy, this is a pre-washed picture).

    Thank you. That daughter is prone to depression and loves purple, so I wanted her quilt to be uplifting. The Moda charm packs that are in it are called Happy and they really are. It's a disappearing 16 patch.

    Disappearing 16 patch looks like a fun pattern to do. I have done a disappearing 9 patch, but your pattern looks more interesting.

    That string spiderweb looks like a great way to use up some scraps. Very nice quilt!

    I have a few blocks made using her Virginia Bound pattern. Another one of my Permanent Collection of UFOs. She's a great teacher; love her attitude!
