    Sharon,
    Thanks for posting photos of the Treadleon gathering. Always fun to see what others are doing. I like your Pfaff machine in the treadle.

    My Pfaff treadle is one of my favorites, it went with us because it doesn't have a monsterously huge cabinet. I really wanted to take the White rotary, however the cabinet and irons are larger than the Pfaff.

    I just finished this quilt yesterday. It's for The Linus Connection, a local central Texas organization.

    I finished this quilt today. Its all flannel, except the binding. Pieced on 3 treadle machines and quilted on a Viking Sapphire 875 tailed machine. The quilt holder is my hubby.

    OK, so after giving up on trying to get the quilting machine I bought to work, I finished my green bed quilt on my 201. Gotta love my 201.

    It's absolutely gorgeous! Those circles look so good!

    What wasn't cooperating with the quilting machine? I'm assuming it's a frame mounted system?

    The machine itself isn't working. I purchased it from a coworker and should have tried it out before I bought it. When I first got it home it would sew for a a few feet and then break the thread. I adjusted everything I knew of, changed the needle and now it's worse. Have birds nest thread everywhere. I called a repair man (which really erked me, since I repair vintage machines all the time) and he wanted $120 to show up. I just got frustrated with it and it is now a garage obstacle.

    The circles look great and the soft coloring is lovely.

    It does all of that on and off the frame? (I think it's a stretched Singer or something isn't it?)
    Machines do behave strangely when they're put on a frame because of the extra factors we introduce. Did you ever start a thread about it? If you do, I promise to try to help.

    My Singer 15 did some free motion. (It is the biggest project I've tried on FM) Then To put it together I used a Singer 201. Name:  jeans skirt 005.JPG

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
    good mothers let you lick the beaters - great mothers turn it off first

    Just a sneak peek. I will also be using a "plastic wonder" on this for the applique and binding. Piecing done on my White 1514. http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...y-t226579.html

    I just got my grandmother's 1916 Davis Vertical Feed treadle. Was your machine previously owned by
    a family member? I haven't made a quilt with it yet, but I am very pleased to have it.

    I completely forgot to come back when I finished the doll quilt. Saila is very happy with her new quilt. I did everything for this one on my featherweight.

    Miriam...stunning skirt (I want one!), Mrs Finch, that is one gorgeous applique, it looks great now....can't wait to see it finished and thrillhouse, the doll quilt is lovely, such beautiful fabrics, great choices. I am awed everyone....and so browned off I can't get to my machines....since I started back at work (which is supposedly part-time)...with courses and rostered hours and people leaving...I haven't quilted for about 3 months. I seriously need to factor in some quilting.

    What a wonderfully encouraging thread. I'm a newbie member here as well as a newbie quilter living off the grid and have thus embraced the hand crank and treadle sewing machine.

    I made a skirt with just plain fabric for the triangle piece, I used a pair of corduroy pants. I was 15 when I made mine,very popular in the 1970s.
