    Mrs Finch, Those are pretty quilt tops. The raindrops and bird are cute.

    Sharon, I like that skateboard quilt. Those skateboards have wild motifs.

    Jean, Very pretty quilt with the applique flower.

    It's always fun seeing what others have made with their vintage machines. Thanks for sharing!

    Monica,
    Thanks for the kind comments, the kids love the skateboard quilts, its become a favorite pattern for "The Linus Connection".
    The fabrics used in the skateboard quilt are salesman's sample fabrics,huge prints that were too weird for anything else. The local Hoffman fabric reps give us(The Linus Connection) their retired samples.

    My wife just finished a runner for my recliner, using some of her scraps. The photos are the front and back of the same runner. The entire runner was made on a 1956 Singer 301A (LBOW) mounted in a Singer 430 “Profile” Sewing Desk, except for a label embroidered in one corner with a 2001 White W3300 Embroidery Machine.

    CD, that chair runner is pretty snazzy looking. Your wife did a good job. My 301 is my go-to machine for all things quilting.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    What a charming machine. It looks as though it was easy to use. And the quilt is great.

    Here is an Easter runner that my wife had on her chair when I took the photos of the Scrappy runner on my chair. It was also made entirely on vintage sewing machines (except for embroidered label) including the 1956 Singer 301A (piecing & FMQ), and a 1958 Singer 401A (zigzag stitching around appliqué edges). Those two machines are set up full-time in what I call her “command center” of a U-shaped group of machines.

    She has made several seasonal runners for our chairs, but we both like the scrappy quilts with the tiny pieces, so she made one for my chair to use between holidays.

    The green machine behind the chairs/runners in the photos is my Singer 319W treadle, and was not used for these projects.

Size:  1.26 MBVery scrappy Log Cabin style with different sized strips . I didn't buy any fabric and pieced it all on my 1940s 66 Singer in a treadle cabinet.

    I had never thought of chair runners....they look amazing....Love that log cabin, the fabric works beautifully. Have to get busy and sort my scraps into better order.

    Yes, In addition to my vintage machines, I also have a Nolting quilting system. I do long-arm quilting for myself and for a few other people who have managed to find me stitching away in my basement. I have a few others that I've done recently. Name:  more pictures 008.JPG

    Here's my latest finished quilt. The pattern is "Crayon Box" by Bonnie Hunter. It's all flannel except for the binding. I was at a Treadle On gathering(TOGA) last month, my demo was binding by machine.
    I used 3 of my treadle machines for the piecing, 1936 Singer 201K,1917 White Rotary and 1955 Pfaff 60. I quilted it with a walking foot using the Pfaff 60 and also for the binding. It was fun to see how my iron ladies would handle flannel.
