    I just finished a quilt square to donate to a rescue quilt. I used my Featherweight for the tucking, my Singer 15-125 for some free motion and my Elna SU for the lovely blanket stitch she does.

    That looks really good! Thanks for posting it. I especially like seeing the machines "in action" during the process.

    Just a bit late for Halloween & Dios de los Muertos but ok for All Saints Sunday. It's a panel and the borders were added with a 1947 Singer 66 and FMQ with the names, common & Latin, of the bones on a 1948 Singer 15-91 (thank you MacyBaby).

    Very nice work all of you! The dog square is great. Beautiful dress Glenn and that's some fantastic quilting on the skeleton.

    Tiffany my White 1514 did everything but the zigzagging around the letters.
    For a fund-raiser. Can you guess the breed!

    These are my very first quilts. Technically. A pair of mug rugs for a gift exchange. Made on my 1975 Kenmore 1311 (a year older than I am, so totally vintage). They're washed and will be sent off later today to some guy in Brooklyn. They measure 7.5 x 12 inches.

    Your mug rugs are adorable!

    Yay! Finally someone younger than me!! I'm a '74 vintage. Your mug rugs look great! I only recently started making mug rugs. Mostly I use the "keeper" parts of my practice on the LA for coasters and plate cozies.

    Thanks, everyone! Even my practice pieces came out well, so I'm going to give the nice one to one of my cousins. It is rather nice to be making something that is useful.

    The success has, of course, gone to my head. Because I actually think it might be possible to make a Christmas tablemat for another cousin between now and Thursday. And bake a pie. If I stopped fooling around with the Internets and started ironing it could happen.

    So we are both vintage - I guess that is better than ancient LOL!

    I wouldn't have cared if for you as long as the color goes well with your skin tone.

    I know this comment is several years old but if read, do you have name of doll pattern and dress pattern you used?

    Vintage yes, ancient no! I sew with ancient machines, though! I was using the 1917 White Rotary all weekend and yesterday; I finished a quilt top yesterday. Its a tumbler pattern, 10" size.
    I think the White Rotary is my favorite of my treadles.
    I'll upload some photos once I buy a cable for my new camera.

    It was making the 9 patch blocks, and your work on Ashlea's quilt that got me started and took the fear out of it. If you could make a quilt, I knew that I could make a tiny quilt (mug rug). So thank you for that.

    I didn't manage a table topper for Thanksgiving, as I had a pie disaster on top of the OCD flare of trying to match up something in my small number of holiday fabrics. Oh well. I'll give it to my cousin for Christmas.
