    Your crumb blocks look so pretty. :) Just this weekend I started on some crumb blocks for a table topper. Wish my blocks look as pretty as yours :)

    Here is my latest. My daughter had seen a quilt with this patterned on the Modern Day Quilt site. She requested me to make her a quilt using this pattern. I call this modern pattern twisted 60 degrees. I do not know the correct name for this pattern.

    The piecing was done on my Eldredge Two Spools, quilting on Singer 201, binding Davis NVF, and decorative stitch to finish off the binding on Singer 401.

    Another modern day quilt made with vintage machines!

    All of the quilts are simply beautiful! I have my great grandma's Singer Treadle machine in its original cabinet...and embarrassing to say, but did not really consider quilting with it...after "lurking" here on the board, and finally joining, and then seeing all of the lovely quilts made-and some with vintage machines, have made me decide to give it a go!...Thanks ya'll!!

    Pull that machine out and start using it! You will love the machine. After you have made something with it, please post your project here. I would love to see your machine and quilt.

    Vintagemotif - love the quilt - lots of motion, lovely colours, and a great way to keep the machines exercised!

    Kiffie - Get cracking with the treadle. Once you get going with it you will enjoy it so much you will wonder why you never did it earlier.

    I thought you might all like to hear about a comment on one of my Youtube videos. It is from a man in Canada who says he loves old machines, thanked me for the video explaining how to adjust the tension, and added that he has actually stared to sew on an old machine and is getting quite good at it. I was incredibly pleased to hear from him - and Kiffie, just think what you will be able to do!

    One of these days I will do the quilting at home instead of taking all my quilts to the quilt shop. Anyway, I've made a start, even if it is only 16 inches square! I have had a bit of fun in the August Doll Quilt Swap, which I have posted there http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-139405-27.htm

    This is a great topic, and it shows you can do anything on a vintage machine!

    Here is another item I have made on my 319. I made this in two days while our GD was staying with us. If you can see the little purse on her wrist she made that on a FW. Being left handed I turned the FW backwards and put the stitch lever in reverse. She like using it better that way. She is 7 years old and is very interested in learning how to sew. Oh, and she also made her little neckless and bracelet.

    Now she is just precious, and quite talented too!

    Cute dress and handbag! She looks adorable and very happy with her pretty dress.

    Crossstitcher - What a gorgeous little grand daughter you have, she looks so pretty in her new dress, and wonderful to hear she's keen to do her own sewing.

    Well if this thread extends beyond quilts, here are a couple of pictures of my daughter - she's 15 - in a summer top I have just finished using my 1940 28K shown here http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-130994-13.htm

    It was an exercise in pattern drafting, she wanted a 1960's style square neck, and the print has a 60's look about it. Before all you Americans start jumping up and down, no the pictures aren't of the Kremlin, it's Brighton Pavilion.

    Loops are far less bother than buttonholes

    I just looked at your little doll quilt before coming to this topic and it is darling. I, too, love embellishing quilts with beading and buttons. :thumbup:

    I really like the decorative black detail around the edges. Is that piping or a ribbon?

    Hello SewExtreme, thanks for looking at the doll quilt. I have to confess that the decoration in the centre was an afterthought. Once I'd done the border and binding it looked empty in the middle, so it was time for the emergency ribbon, buttons and beads.

    Hello Bennett, the edging is narrow ribbon. She wanted wider ribbon, but I had to educate her! She's not one for sewing, she'd far rather ride a horse.

    Here are a few things I have done on my Bernina 830... from 1975, that is! I have had it since it was new and it has always been dependable. I did the complete items and the FMQing with this machine - first time of FMQ.

    This 2011 July Doll Quilt Swap quilt was pieced entirely on my vintage Singer 301A and then the FMQ was done on my rather newer 2004 Bernina Artista~~which I also do love.

    I honestly cannot say enough great things about my 301. It is such strong work horse and very straight seams. I absolutely love it to pieces, sorta speak. :-D

    Finally finished - the quilt I pieced on the 1913 Serata treadle, which can be seen at http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-130994-8.htm

    I bought the machine in May, and had to try it out. I wanted something that I could do quickly, and this project involved lots of long strips, ideal for getting used to sewing with a treadle. It's a wonderful machine - so smooth!

    I got it quilted at the quilt shop, but put the binding on with the treadle. No, no hand sewing - that would take me forever. Slowly but surely I'm building up towards making quilts entirely at home.

    Very nicely done! I love the print, the square style neck, and the way you did the buttons. She's a pretty girl too!!!

    Linda, I love all your projects! They all look like they were fun to make. You have given me some ideas for some quick projects.

    Very pretty quilt! I agree that long strips are ideal for treadle quilts. This is a cute way to use the long strips. Also great for a quilt made from scraps.

    Just had to tell you all that she won 2nd place in her class of quilts. I am so proud of her and she is happy too. Her quilt is on page 6.
