    Very cute quilt! Somehow I missed that you broke your arm. Glad to see it's better.

    Double Irish Chain quilt top. (I'll finish the corners today, but it's supposed to rain, so I snapped this yesterday.)

    Great quilt, Manalto. And l love it that you included the beauty that that did the work, too. I know I love my work horses.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

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.
    I'm a bit late to this. But I really like this quilt. I love the stripes and pok a dots. They go so well with your blocks.

    This quilt was pieced using a 1917 White Rotary treadle machine and quilted with my modern Pfaff QE 4.2. It won an Honorable Mention ribbon in my guild's quilt show this weekend.

    Here is a table topper I made and won a blue ribbon on it. I used my 301 machine.

    Sewbeadit,
    It took me a bit of getting used the hand wheel going opposite of what I was used to. I really like sewing with the White Rotary, its a lovely machine. You have good tastes in machines and recliners.

    Bertie had to have his bobbin area cleaned and tension re-adjusted before we could get this done. I guess I left him alone too long. His Christmas bento box top is done. We threw some solid yellow in just to be different.

    You can't beat an old sewing machine that has a treadle on it. Wow! that topper is so cool. I love it. I would love to see the pattern you used, but I think from how the star is made, you sewed some strips together, cut the squares into triangles, and arranged them accordingly, then sewed them together again. Lovely. I love to kinds of things that bring history to life. That is why I got into quilting to begin with.

    This is a string chevron quilt I made on my 1910 Singer 66 treadle. The strings are paper pieced. I tried doing them without the paper but could not get the right Chevron shape. After sewing the fabric into strips I then used the piece as you go method quilting each strip added, in the match stick pattern, before adding another strip. It was quite a handful but was so fun. I just love sewing on my treadle.
