    So pretty and bright! I hope to make quilts for my kids on my husband's Grandmother's model 66 Singer. I wasn't sure about quilting on a treadle machine. Your quilt inspires me to hurry up and get it refurbished!

    I just finished a 3 dimensional bow tie top, using mostly red,white and blue. I pieced the blocks on several of my vintage/antique sewing machines. Treadle machines: 1917 White Rotary, 1936 Singer 201k,1955 Pfaff 60. Electrics:
    1952 Singer black 301 and 1961 tan featherweight. I finished the last 8 blocks with a 1992 Bernina 1031, will likely quilt it too. My modern Pfaff QE 4.2 is in the hospital, so I'll have to remember how to quilt with only 6.5" of throat v.s. 10".
    I also pieced a quilt pattern from Villa Rosa Designs, "Saratoga", using the White Rotary, it was quilted with my Bernina 1031.

    Thrillhouse and purplefiend like both of your quilts. Look at those tootsies peeking out from under perplefiend's quilt. Really very pretty and nice work.

    Rodney and Thrillhouse(aka:Trish),
    Thank you! The feet belong to my dd's boy friend, needed someone tall enough to hold a 72" quilt top for the photo.

    Pieced on my Singer 128 handcrank.......46" square, a variation of "Seeing Stars" by Marti Mitchell. Quilting will likely be FM on my 1980 Elna. I've been playing with 9 patches a lot lately. Especially 9 patches and stars. Can't get more basic than that!

    Bertie made a quilt top with some polka dots from stash, some dog-themed FQs from Tuesday Morning, and a yard from Joann's (blue border). We're going to back it with a dog print flannel sheet.

    Mrs Finch,

    You and Bertie do wonderful work. That is bright and fabulous.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Grey Fox I love your quilt. Classic designs become classics for good reasons.
    Mrs Finch I love the asymmetrical blocks in yours and Bertie's quilt. It looks like it was fun to make.

    I haven't posted in awhile because I've been working on a hand applique quilt.... no use of vintage machines at all. But I'm taking a short break from that to finished a couple of smaller quilts. This one is for my great-great nephew born in January. It measures 42"x52". The blocks are 9" with 2" sashing. I did all the piecing on my 1953 Singer 221 and the quilting on my 1942 Singer 15-91. Those are my go-to machines. And, I have finished the binding and label now but this is a picture after I quilted it, before I bound it.

    Oh, how sweet of you to ask. It's doing great. I did some difficult therapy to get it back but you'd never know I broke it.... of course when it's going to rain I know it.
