    I made another baby quilt. I just love using this quick and fun pattern from Moda. Piecing was done with the Two Spools, quilting with a Singer 201, binding attached with Davis NVF, and decorative stitching with Singer 328K.

    These projects are lovely. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm working on two vintage machines and hope to start my first sewing in a few weeks.

    Wow, what a fun photo shop! I love all the quilts and other projects done on the vintage machines!

    I am going to post a couple pictures too.

    I just finished this baby quilt yesterday. It was suppose to be a quilted book - alphabet soup - but I cut it all up and made it into a quilt. It looks like a panel, but all the yellow sashing is just that - sashing sewn on to the sides of the book blocks with corner stones added. I had to miter the border, which I usually don't do, but it turned out ok.

    This quilt was made using my Eldredge Two Spools (1915) treadle, my Singer 15-88 treadle (when I needed to back tack), my Davis Vertical Feed Treadle (1886). The only E-machine was my 1976 Pfaff 1222e for finishing the binding with an invisible walking zig zag.

    Nancy, I love your quilts! I like the way you used the children book fabric. Great idea!

    Here is the pic of the quilt top on my Pfaff 230. I had never done a strip quilt, and it was too big, so I halved it and made two to use a baby quilts, still finished out at 36x45. I do more sewing than quilting, so this is a biggie for me. I also am going to attempt to FMQ with the hopping foot. Wish me luck.

    Melinda,
    Is your Pfaff 230 in treadle or is it an e-machine? I love the look of the black 230s. You will do well; so, don't worry!
    Cute strip quilt!

    Mine is an e machine, and I wish it was black. It is a really ugly pewter color with green writing on it. The hopping foot was easy to use, and went way better than I thought. At least I think it did, because I had never seen one on a machine, and I hope it was on there right even. Test piece went alright, and I just wing things a lot anyway, so I just let nature take its course. Your quilts are so pretty too. I sort of copied your quilting pattern, with the big loops on it, and did a chalk line first and just followed the line.

    So many gorgeous quilts have been posted here since I last looked! BoJangles - I particularly like your wonky set blocks.

    Just a little project from me this time, which is my contribution to the September doll quilt swap. I ended up using three different machines - purely and simply because I was disorganised - 1913 Serata treadle to piece it, 1940 28K to do the writing, 1937 Frister and Rossmann to do the quilting.

    Would you vintage ladies like to know how to do the writing with a straight stitch machine? You need a hand machine, it's far too fiddly with a treadle, and it's not free motion because I haven't got there yet!

    Hello Linda - This is how to do it:-

    In the top half of a piece of paper write out your word, actual size, making sure that you take one continuous line with as few changes of direction as possible.

    Fold the paper in half beneath the writing, so the writing shows on top, and insert a blank piece of paper, half the size of the first piece, between the the two folded halves. It should fit snugly inside.

    Now make sure your sewing machine is unthreaded, and sew along the writing. The inner piece of paper will stay in place once you have done the first few blank stitches.

    When you have finished you have the writing transferred onto the inner paper as a line of perforations.

    Use this second, smaller piece of paper as your pattern. Thread up your machine, pin the paper pattern to your material, and sew along the line of writing. When you have finished the paper comes away fairly easily because it has now been perforated twice.

    The advantages of this method is that you do not need to use any fabric marker, and you do not risk transferring any pencil or biro etc. from the paper you first wrote on. Also, the first time you do the blank sewing on the paper you have a practice run before doing the real thing.

    I've tried it once on a treadle and it drove me nuts. I've done it twice on a hand machine and it was ideal, because it is so much easier to go extra slow.

    Thanks for this info. I will give it a try. I love your doll quilt!

    Neat idea on the writing.

    Nancy love the idea of using a fabric book to make a quilt. Will remember that one.

    Here is a little girl I made on my 301. A lady on the quilting board made one of these and told us where to get the pattern.
    She is a Sunbonnet Sue Door Stop. Her body is a 2L. bottle filled with sand. She will be my christmas present to a secret pal in the qult club.
    The pattern doesn't call for her to have a face, but I think if I make another I will make a face and put long hair on her.

    I made this quilt using my Singers 201K treadle and 1957/51 featherweights; I quilted it on a long arm machine. The pattern is "Double Sawtooth Star" 90" x 103". Its made with lots of woven plaids and striped fabrics and Civil war reproduction shirting prints. There is no quick piecing done, the vintage straight stitch machines are wonderful for piecing triangles, no zig zig hole to eat the points. The binding was sewn on with my older Pfaff 1222E, about 1978 vintage. It belongs to my son, he loves his new quilt.
    This weekend it won a 3rd place ribbon at The Chisholm Trail quilt show, in Round Rock,Texas. My first ribbon ever!

    Hello Purplefiend Sharon,

    Your quilt is really lovely - many congratulations.

    Thanks also for enlightening me...I always wondered why people went on about pieces disappearing down the hole. I've never owned or used a zigzag machine, or any electric machine, unless you count ten terrifying minutes in a needlework class at school in the 1960s. I enjoy living in a technological time warp.
