    Trish, Your quilt is lovely!

    Nancy, I like that idea of a dresser scarves to sit under the machines that go on the shelf. I will have to make a couple for my machines that aren't in a box.

    Nancy, How do you get your foot that hight to the shelf? I can't. I can only get my foot about 4 feet off the floor. lol
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    I use orphan blocks to make a zippered foot control bag for my FW when I need to take one with me in the Tutto bag. I have made a couple of crumb quilts and don't know when I'll have enough blocks for another one.

    Purplefiend - I love your machine covers. It has made me rethink what to do for mine. I made one a while ago, with dowelling to make it stand up like a tent. It's a bit of a joke. Next time I'll use your approach, which is more like a giant sized tea cosy.

    Crossstitcher - Fantastic colours, really cheerful, and I like the way it just grew!

    Thank you everyone for all the lovely compliments for my quilt. I've sent off the forms to enter it into a show in May - I'll keep you posted!

    The Mondo Bag! Stitched on my 401A.
    Made with the gridded fusible interfacing. You fuse 2 1/2" squares (I used batiks) to the grid and then sew the seams to make panels for the outside of the bag. This is a huge monster bag perfect for hauling quilts to club for show & tell.
    Carly seems bored with the finished project...

    What a great bag Cindy...stylish, big and useful....all things I think a bag should be. Never was a clutch/small bag girl...all my bags are "life support systems", everything but the kitchen sink

    Cindy, I love the colors in your bag! Those are beautiful batiks! Is Carly the black cat? What is the fuzzy thing in front of the cat? A feret? I want to do smaller projects this year like totes, cozies! I am tired of doing very large quilts! Great job, great looking bag!

    Cindy, I love your Mondo bag! I had to google Mondo bag, never heard of one. I found a helpful you-tube video that shows the process that you describe. I have that added to my to do list. I'll look for the fusible grid interfacing that is used for this project. Thanks for sharing!

    Nancy, yes Carly is one of our cats. The fuzzy thing is a raccoon tail that our youngest DD got at Sauder Village, a pioneer museum in NW Ohio a few years back. The cats like to carry it around the house.
    My cutting table is my old dropleaf dining room table. It's just the right height for rotary cutting (for me, anyway). I usually keep one leaf up and one down (as in the photo). When I'm basting a large quilt, I open it up all the way and rotate it diagonally so that it fits in the room better.

    Well I just finished binding this quilt. It is 104" x 116"s, which on my Queen sized bed is a bedspread! I wish I had a cabin to put this quilt in! To me, it would look great in an old rustic cabin! The whole top is done in flannels. Pieced on my FW and Pfaff 1222e. I did not put flannel on the back. I used ric rack as basket handles and did trapuntoName:  flannel house quilt.JPG

    Very pretty Nancy!
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Another WOW finish, Nancy. I love the bright colors, the wide pieced border, the quilting - oh, heck, everything!

    Your quilt turned out really nice Nancy! Using ric rack for the basket handles was a great idea.

    Thank you all, I had started that quilt before I got into treadles, so it was pieced on all electric machines. My FW, my Pfaff 1222e, and my Mom's Pfaff 130. This year my goal is to get unfinished things done!

    Nancy,
    Your quilt is beautiful!! I like the bright colors. The rick rack handles on the baskets are cute, so much easier than turning them under. I'd like to volunteer my bedroom to put your quilt into.

    Monica and Sharon thank you!

    He he, Sharon if you were here I might take you up on the offer to put the quilt on your bed! I don't know what I am going to do with this one! But, our 18 year old granddaughter just loves this quilt! I think, I may save it for her to put on her bed when she moves out. I have made all the granddaughter's quilts. I was really surprised this girl likes this quilt because she is doesn't usually go for the brights like Gramma does. I don't want to put it on my bed because it was just too much work to take a chance on messing it up! I'm trying to finish things - I made a promise to myself that I can't start something new until I finish something that's not done yet!

    Thank you Muv. This is the only quilt I have pieced using only quilting flannels. It is very soft and cuddly, albeit, very large too.

    I am glad to hear that you can sew again - I was sorry to read about your accident.

    I'm still new here. But these are the vintage machines I have: *1958 Pfaff 60, *Singer 503A, *Singer 301A (love this machine!, *Singer 403A, *Singer 348 (turquoise color). And tomorrow I am going out of town to pick up another Singer 301 that I saw on Craigslist today. It's in great condition and still in the cabinet. I can't wait to get her.
