    Sharon great job! You are going to make some soldier and his/her family very happy.

    Judy, Irishrose, you do such beautiful work, but I especially like the spirals! I haven't tried doing a spiral table runner, but that is on my list!

    You're quite welcome,Skip and thank you for your service. Thank you everyone for your kind words.
    I'm a Navy Brat and married a career Marine, so when the opportunity arose to make these quilts I felt I had to.

    It's always enjoyable to see what folks create using their vintage machines. Thanks for sharing!
    Absolutely agree! I love seeing everyone's machines, but seeing what they made with them makes it even more special. Unfortunately I can't share what I'm making because it's never a quilt (at the moment!) .... but one day........... *sigh*

    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.
    Nanna,
    those bunnies are from a book called "Grandma's Bunnies". Sorry, but copying them would be a copyright infringement.

    I do all of my piecing on my Singer Featherweight 221. I use it every day. I also do FMQ of small objects with my 1951 Featherweight. I use it for everything.

    I just finished piecing a Smokey Mountain Stars top, still needs borders. I used 30s repros. The free pattern can be found on www.quiltville.com. I pieced it with my 1955 Pfaff model 60 treadle.

    Candid shot of Pfaff 1222 making a dog-themed lap quilt. Found it at G'will for 29.99. The local shop wanted $380 to fix it but could not identify one part that it needed. I applied Liquid Wrench & the hot hairdryer treatment. Everything works now. My first attempt at rehabbing a machine. Now addicted like many of you! PS another Pfaff 875 behind this one, under the floral cover. Plus a Pfaff 230 in the "clinic" aka my garage.

    @ Mrs Finch: Love the dog fabric lap quilt. I have enough cat fabric to make several lap quilts like that. Thanks for showing us your work and machines.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Love your dog fabric. I've been collecting cat fabrics to make a quilted jacket for my DSIL but I really like the dogs better. Cute quilt. and good job getting your machine up and running.

    This is so beautiful. I would love to make it. Is there a pattern? Thank you. I have 2 Singer Featherweights which I just adore. I'm old now, but I wish I had collected these machines when I was young.

    Amelia,
    I've been doing most of my quilting with either the Bernina 930 or 1031.
    Sharon

    Mrs. Finch,
    I have a Pfaff 1222E, love that machine! I'm using it to piece a quilt from the newest issue of "Scrap Quilts" by Fons and Porter, its called "Color Study".

    I think I'll use mine to put together my daughter's quilt when I'm finally up to that stage. I'm basically making jelly rolls at the moment whenever I get time - which is never! But of all my serviced vintage machines, the Bernina is the one so far that has 'the magic'. I'll also try piecing on the 222K when the time comes, but I've loved the Bernina for it's clean stops and starts, which I think would be perfect for quilting

    I started this quilt in November of 2012 and finally hand stitched the last of the binding to the backside today. It is about 75 X 100. The braid side went together very quickly and initially was intended to be the front. The back side was pieced using inherited fabrics from momís estate. That side was a challenge and I never knew what design I would end up with. Most of momís fabric was pre-cut into inaccurate 3Ē squares and I used EQ7 to design as I sewed.

    I used five machines to make this; 3 treadles, 1 vintage, and one modern computerized:
    1) A Singer 66 treadle to do all of the piecing

    2) Singer 115 treadle to do the perforating of the freezer paper for the paper piecing process on those two flannel borders

    3) Singer 403A vintage electric to baste the bias outside edge of the braid side upon its completion. I didnít want those edges to stretch as I worked with that pieced top

    4) Bernina 440QE computerized machine with the BSR to do the quilting (no pics of my 440)
    5) Davis NVF treadle to attach the binding

    Very nice quilt..... I love the idea of having the back and front different quilts...... You can flip it over and have a whole different look. Beautiful!!

    nanna-up-north - thanks. Yes, I like a reversible quilt too. I like to piece and this way I get to do two "tops" and spend money on only one batting. It is my frugal side

    irishRose - yes, that front took a long time. It was quite a challenge using up the 3" squares in limited fabric choices. I know my brother will treasure this quilt. We remember some of these fabrics from our childhood.
    Here is the design I eventually came up with in EQ7:

    I could NOT have accomplished this without the design software!

    What an incredible amount of piecing! Your quilt is gorgeous, and filled with love from your Mother as you finished her work.

    Wow, I LOVE the table topper! Did you also stipple it with your FW? I have 6 FW's and I love them all! I am now working on a Mystery Quilt using one of my FW's!

    Judy, all I can say is WOW, WOW,WOW! Beautiful work - both front and back!

    Sharon, great job using that Pfaff 60! As you know, I have several Pfaffs now, but only one of them is a treadle - none of the later models are in a treadle! I envy you having the 60 in treadle!

    Mrs. Finch, the dog quilt is very cute, nice warm colors! I can't believe you found a Pfaff 1222 for $29.99! That is an awesome price for an awesome machine!

    Nancy
