    Tammi, VintageMotif, and IrishRose, your quilting is wonderful! I really should put more effort into the quilting. And I admired your beautiful quilting too Nanna on the sashing on your fishy quilt.

    Pieced with my 1951 Singer Featherweight

    I just finished this memory quilt using my 1951 Singer Featherweight. I picked it up in AZ while visiting my father-in-law this spring. The quilt was made for a friend, from her late husband's shirts. I delivered it to her tonight...in time for her to wrap up in, as she remembers him tomorrow on what would have been his birthday. (A lady from one of my quilt groups quilted it.) I love that little Featherwieght...she sews like a dream!
    I used Bonnie Hunter's free pattern called, 'Bricks and Stepping Stones'...i love that pattern and it was perfect for this quilt. She told me tonight that as she looks at the quilt she can remember different things he would have said about some of the shirts and things he said when he wore them.

    Hispatchwork, love your quilt and the idea of using his shirts. I made a memory quilt once and I know what she means when she looks at a piece and can remember something about that shirt.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Hispatchwork, what a nice job you did on that quilt.... beautiful. And, it's so large.... the FW got a workout didn't she? I know it will bring a lot of wonderful memories for the wife left behind....... so sweet of you.

    lol - I am like you a couple years ago. Bitten by the vintage machine bug and have spent the last few weeks working to get my New Williams working and have re-started quilting. Want to use my treadle machine. Love looking at your pictures! Thanks for sharing.

    HisPatchwork, very nice use of those shirts. Aren't Bonnie Hunter's patterns fun to use?

    Okay, I need to post my pictures here as well as the UFO thread...... 'cause it was pieced with my little FW.... like most of my quilts. The one on the left is the most recently finished one.... now the guest room is really ready for guests. I finished the one one the right a few weeks ago. We've had so much company this summer..... a good thing except I don't get any sewing done while company is here.

    I should put a label on these.... haven't done that yet. I don't know what to call them.... fishy quilt #1 and fishy quilt #2?? Maybe you all will have a suggestion for me.

    Nanna, I like your quilts with the fish theme. I hope there is a wonderful fishing spot close by to your cabin.

    Thanks Misdixie.... nice titles....

    Yes, vintagemotif, the fishing spot is close by. Just go out the front door and walk down the steps to the dock..... the boat is always ready for a cruise around the lake. Thanks.... the fishing theme does fit here.

    White 1514 in action

    Found this sweetie at an estate sale (http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...y-t226579.html). Quick cleaning, oiling and a belt and here's her first project. It wasn't her fault that I sewed a row wrong and had to redo it! And this is a much better machine than the clone I found so I think this should not be labeled a clone.

    Mrs Finch love your machine, cool vintage!! Your quilt is awesome, love the colors and graphic design.
    Never met a scrap of fabric or vintage sewing machine I didn't like!
    Many a lost and lonely vintage machine has found a home with me, 26 and------ uh oh lost count, who is counting anyway!

    Ms. Finch, I like your Robin-blue-egg colored White. (have a bird theme going) You quilt is pretty with the yellows, browns, and that blue. Enjoy that White!
