    I have pieced quilt blocks with my Singer 99 & 201 hand cranks and it was easy. However quilting might be more difficult
    for me. I prefer using a treadle, the 201 is being used as a treadle, one of my favorite machines.
    I've had rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders, so too much cranking isn't good for me.

    Hello Purplefiend, I used two machines for that quilt. The free motion quilting was done on a 15K treadle, and the quilting around the edge of the appliqué was done with the 99K hand machine shown in the the picture. The picture shows the blocks being joined, doing the third of the three lines of stitching.

    Trish - You might like this video by Leah Day. Watching this gave me the QAYG method I used, but I did a three eighths of an inch seam allowance rather than a quarter and had to cut the strips a bit wider. The red strips on the picture are block joins.

    PS Purplefiend - Exciting day today - I bought a 201K treadle!!

    Muv, thanks for the tip I watched Leah's video and she is very easy to follow. Will give it a try.

    MUV,
    Thanks for explaining that you did most of the quilting with your 15K treadle.
    You'll really love sewing with your 201K, when oiled properly its almost silent. I use it for making some of my quilts, the Pfaff 60 treadle sits right beside him. These 2 are my favorite treadles.

    deedum,

    Nice and simple, I can relate to that. I like the way all your corners come together. Some of mine don't line up. I'm working on it, but sometimes they just don't.

    Joe,
    When your pieces don't line up properly it means that you either didn't cut it right or your seam allowance is either too wide or too narrow. Pinning everything helps too.

    Sharon,

    That plus with my denim quilt I'm using different types and thicknesses of denim. Some stretch, some don't. Plus so far I figure I've used two dozen machines to piece it with. They all seem to feed the material differently.

    One of these days I'll figure out just which machine works the best and just use that one ..... yeah right.

    Here in WV the weather is cold and 4" of snow. So on Tues. I quilted some material to make another purse. On Wed. I made it. I got brave and put a zipper in it. It's been years since I put a zipper in any thing. I also used some new old curtain rings to anchor the straps. The material is from a curtain I bought at GoodWill. Took it apart and had enough material for two purses. Curtain cost 1.99. I am really ready for Spring.

    I got the baby quilt done for my little great-great niece. I had wanted to get it done before she was born.... it was close. By the time the quilt was shipped, the baby is now 5 days old..... enjoying the picture the mama sent. I pieced and quilted this on my 1947 FW.... I just love that machine.

    Nanna, that is so cute. I'm sure she will use this quilt for many many years to come. DH said she is so tiny she gets lost in the stitches. Meaning he likes it too.

    Here's the latest doll quilt, which has now reached its new owner in Oregon. The theme was "something I love" so I did butterflies round a buddleia flower.. Afterwards I found out that buddleia is classed as a noxious weed in Oregon. I used the 1927 99K hand machine for all the machine stitching , except for the FMQ, which was done on the 1945 15K treadle.

    Nanna-up-north - Such a sweet little baby! She looks so tiny on her lovely new quilt, but she'll soon grow into it!

    Trish - What a great way to use second hand curtains!

    Deedum - great to see you are hooked on vintage machines. There's no looking back.. Yes, I know that sounds like a contradiction, but everyone here understands.

    Muv, your doll quilt is really cute and with all the little extra's you put into it. If a some little girl received this I hope she will be able to keep it to show her little girl one day.

    Buddleia in Spring!!?? There speaks a Californian. High summer for us. If we get a summer, that is. It rained non-stop last year, which is why I got so much quilting done!

    I cut my buddleias way back this year. With the little rain that we have had this year in California, it will be awhile until I see the first blossoms on my bushes. But when the buddleias do bloom with their pretty blossoms, all the pretty painted ladies and swallowtails butterflies will be there...humm...I'm so looking forward to then. The wisteria is starting to bud and bloom here, and I also have some lavender blooming.

    Your butterflies are lovely, simple lovely.

    Trish I love the purse! So cute and so springy!

    Jean what a cute baby quilt! Elephants are not something I have seen on a quilt! I love it and the baby!

    Muv, you do such great work. Instead of a doll quilt why not make that one a wall hanging? It needs to be displayed!
