    Nice pot holder quilt. I like making pot holder quilts from the civil war era. I have also posted my pot holder on this thread several weeks ago. They are fun to make.

    Thank you Glenn. It was your quilt that inspired me to find out more about those quilts and pass the word on to my online group. I confess, my next one will have the binding sewn down by machine. I could see a wall hanging with maybe zigzag to sew them together. They are fun to make and gives me something to do between classes and chores.

    Ms. Finch, I like your White machine.

    Sharon, Nice video, please post the finished project for us to see.

    Redmadder, Nicely done quilt. I like looking at the individual blocks. A collage of mini quilts!

    Love the wall hangings of your Mother with the sewing machine and the knitting needles to hang. What a great idea!

    I was at the quilt library with my hubby and they had a speaker that day and many, many quilts about the potholder quilts. It was very interesting.

    I'd never seen a potholder quilt.... behind the times and living in the boonies tends to keep you in the dark. It would be nice to quilt something that you didn't have to fight with.... big quilts kick my butt.

    Okay, finally, I get to post the quilt I finished with all vintage machines. It got pieced with 2 FWs (1947 and 1953). The quilting was done on my Singers 15-91 and 128 HC.

    Jean,

    Your quilt is stunning! I love the way you quilted the sashing that frames the blocks. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, everyone. To answer your question, Frudemoo, I made 1 block 5 years ago and then set it down. I decided this spring to finish it and I've hauled it with me to the cabin and then, back home. But, it's done. I'm happy because I really have a hard time working on anything when I have things hanging over my head... and this one kept bugging me. So, now I can go back to working on the Davis I got and see if I can get it up and running... and then I have that Singer 99 and 101 to tinker with. And, I do need to get that baby quilt made for my cousin's grandbaby, and one for each of my 2 great nephews.... And, I have to go to NC this next week to help my youngest move back to Mi....... I don't know how I had time to work. There is always too much to do.

    REally, a hand crank?? Did your arm get sore? there is a lot of beautiful quilting on that. Do you have any comments or suggestions for HC quilting?

    I'm not sure which category to put it in though.
    Here's a short video of me sewing some of the blocks. I'm using a 1914 Singer 115 treadle.

    Great idea with that Ikea light, I've been thinking of getting one of those for all types of crafts and projects.

    just thought folks would get a kick out of this, My mom is currently delivering her latest quilt to it's new owner in "Blockville NY" I actually asked her twice if she was just joking with the name of that town... LOL I said It would be fun to live on "Fat Quarter Dr."

    The IKEA lamps are great, I can put the light where I need it. I got the idea from Bonnie Hunter's blog.

    The part I quilted with the HC was the piano key borders. And, yes, my arm got tired at first. I worked on it till the arm was sore on the first day and the next day I could do more. I finished it in 3 days..... not quilting all day. But, I figured it was good exercise for my arm that I broke last year.

    I should tell you that I LOVE quilting with vintage machines. I didn't even use a walking foot or darning foot with that 128HC..... it handled the thick sandwich just fine. And the 15-91 was also easy to use.... I did use a darning foot for the curved stitching. I've always had problems with the fabric shifting and getting tucks when I used my fancy Viking 1+..... so much that I didn't like machine quilting my stuff. But now I know, it's the machine, not me... Yeah!!
