    I've been catching up this morning.... computer has been in repair and I haven't been able to see what all of you have been doing.

    Nancy, the quilt you made for your FIL is wonderful and such a nice tribute. It is so hard to work on a quilt when you know the recipient is leaving us soon. I did that when my brother was dying and was able to put his quilt up for him to see 2 days before he died. I cried every time I worked on that quilt and when I visit my SIL, I still have a hard time when I see it. She has it hanging on the living room wall so I can't avoid it even when I want to.

    Glen, your potholder quilt is really cute.... and I agree.... it needs to be on a bed. You did a really great job.... fun to see it.

    So nice to see some new quilts.

    Nancy, I'm so glad your FIL was able to see his quilt before he passed.

    Glen, your potholder quilt suits your lifestyle. Thank you for the history lesson.

    The black outline around the bunnies really set them off. An extra special quilt.

    My little Singer 301 has been busy again. The Spicy Spiral in dark batiks for my oldest daughter's b'day was sewn on a 50s clone and quilted on the 301. The coral and purple scrappy was 301 all the way. Name:  K's Spicy Spiral.jpg

    Wow! I love the Spicy Spiral,
    I don't think I have seen one like it before.

    Skip, you'll appreciate that the quilt is a Quilt of Valor. It's going to be delivered to a local injured female soldier by the social worker from the VA clinic. I just need to do the presentation case and the label to QOV's specs.

    Darcy, I just love those bunnies..... is there a pattern? I make a lot of baby quilts and would love to copy if you don't mind.

    Irishrose, your quilts are wonderful.... and such a great gift for that injured soldier. She will be so proud to have your loving gesture wrapped around her.

    Irishrose,
    Thank you for making QOV, I'm sure that she'll love it. Your quilt is bright and cheery. "Thank You Quilters", is the group that I sew wounded soldier quilts with. We've been making children's quilts lately too. Our quilts go to the soldiers and their families at Fort Hood Army base in Killeen,Texas. I attached 3 of the quilts that I quilted and bound. My group gets quilt tops from all over the USA and we quilt and bind them.

    Irishrose, there is nothing more wonderful than a quilt of valor. Being reitired after 25 years of service and a veteran of two wars I understand what an honor to give this QOV to a wounded soldier. I have placed a special star by your name in my heart. Thank you

    Irishrose I love your quilts. Those that receive them will love them.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Here's today's finish. It was too hot to weed the garden so I finished this simple quilt for my ex-husband in a nursing home - that's why it's long and narrow (65 by 90). Those hospital beds are odd. He says his fav colors are cranberry and purple. The pinkish strip is cranberry and the purple is darker.
    I pieced this on a 15 clone - it didn't do as perfect a job as the 301 does, but she was busy. The presser foot was too tight on the MW, but I've since figured it out. FMQ on the 301, of course.

    It's so nice to see pretty quilts; it brightens up the day!

    Glenn, you did a very nice job with your quilt.

    Darcy, your bunnies are too cute.

    Irishrose, your quilts are all so cheery.

    Sharon, It's nice that your group works on quilts for the soldiers and their families.

    It's always enjoyable to see what folks create using their vintage machines. Thanks for sharing!

    Scrappy Log Cabin quilt for a wounded soldier

    I just finished the quilting and binding on the scrappy Log Cabin quilt today. It was pieced on my Singer 201K treadle and quilted with a Bernina 930; it has 227 different fabrics in the quilt. It will go to a wounded soldier or family member at Fort Hood Army base in Killeen,Texas. I'm one of the "Thank You Quilters", we make comfort quilts for wounded soldiers and their families.

    Sharon, your quilt is fantastic!! I just love log cabin quilts and this one with all the different fabrics looks so comfy. I know the soldier that gets it will love it. It's a wonderful thing that you do these for the ones that have given so much.

    Sharon, what a pretty quilt and what a good thing you are doing. I had a SIL stationed at Ft Hood years ago.
