    Hehehehehehe, I know exactly what you are saying. I 'love' each of my machines the most when I am using them! I have a hard time picking a favorite!

    Trish your delectable mountain border is such a nice touch to the whole quilt - beautiful! I made a quilt for my brother that is all delectable mountains, which was nice, but the way you used it as a border is great! I love the colors/stars too!

    Queen's Diamond Jubilee Quilt

    After months of work, here it is! Apart from the hand stitched blanket stitch around the appliqué, it was made with my 1927 Singer 99K hand machine (appliqué, machine stitched detail, outline quilting) and 1945 Singer treadle (free motion quilting and binding).

    It was seeing all the quilts on this thread that had been made entirely at home that made me determined to make a large quilt with the quilting done on the treadle, rather than cheating and getting tops done on the long arm machine at the quilt shop. Thank you all for the kick I needed!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Muv, you must have HOURS and DAYS in that quilt. Very pretty.

    No, weeks and months, and I wasn't going to let it turn into years. No big projects for 2013. Quick and easy is the name of the game for the coming year.

    Glenn, glad you like it - it's as unfishy as you can get!

    Very nice Muv. I am sure each of the motifs have a meaning. Could you tell us? Did you use the QAYG method for your quilt?

    Thank you everyone for your kind words, which are greatly appreciated.

    Caroline - yes I did do QAYG, 25 panels in total.
    Because the United Kingdom is made up of three countries and a province, I used two plants for each one. The rose and oak for England, daffodil and leek for Wales, thistle and Scots pine for Scotland, and shamrock and flax flower for Northern Ireland.

    When I have better pictures I am going to do a thread in the pictures section, but I'm not really organised yet.

    Well here is a quilt top I have been working on for 2 months. Started out as a lap size to quilt on the sewing machine. Liked it so much made it full size. Now will have to put in on the quilting frame. I did this a little at a time while recovering from surgery. DH put a 301 in cabinet in the dining area for me to sew.

    LOVELY quilt, hats off to you with the vintage machine. For dependability and stitch quality, they are hard to beat.

    Last night I finished this sewing machine cover. I used 4 orphan blocks pieced on various vintage machines, Singers 201,66-1 red eye,115-1 with tiffany/gingerbread decals and the Pfaff 1222E and 60 treadle. The blocks are 3 crumb blocks and a 9 patch with log cabin framing. I sewed the covers together with the Pfaff 60 treadle and the 1222E did all the zig zagging and the binding on the bottom. I'm hoping its wide enough to fit the HV Sapphire 875 when she is in the Horn cabinet that she shares with her sisters, the Berninas 930 & 1031 and Pfaff 1222E.

    Cute! It is so bright and colorful. I like that you used your orphaned blocks in it.

    This is gorgeous. Even though I have a very expensive embroidery/sewing machine, I still love things made on vintage machines. My oldies outnumber my newbies greatly! You really did a super job on this and should be very proud of it.

    Thank you Sharon, I like your machine cover too. Nice bright colors and different prints to look at. My grandkids would like it just to see how many different prints are on it. I can hear them now. Oh look at this one and look at this one etc.

    Sharon, what a great way to use those scraps and orphaned blocks! One of my goals this year is to make a sewing machine cover for all my machines that sit 'out' in my sewing room! Your idea would be a great way to go without having to try and match color schemes in the room! Scrappy goes with everything! Great job!

    This gives me an idea for some little dresser scarves to sit under the machines on my shelf and some foot pedal booties too (to keep the bed of the machine from being scratched when you stick your foot up there)! I think Grant is the one who makes the foot pedal booties!
