    I'm starting a thread where everyone can show off their beautiful creations made by using their vintage/antique sewing machines.

    I got bitten by the vintage sewing machine bug last summer, which was about the same time I started quilting again after an extremely long hiatus from that hobby.

    So, here is one very simple quilt that I made using a Davis New Vertical Feed, a walking foot machine.

    I make all my quilts using my vintage machine, but there are too many photos to post.

    BTW, nice job on your Blues/Whites quilt.

    I had hoped to use a treadle machine for some old fashioned quilting, but hubby couldn't get it working... so.. he bought me a NEW machine... I love it, but still would have liked to use a treadle some.

    Am snowed under now with other projects to get started and finished before Christmas...

    Thank you for starting this thread.

    A lot of my sewing is done on my 1975 Bernina Record 830. I will post some photos later. Guess I will have to crank on my handcranks and treadles to show sewing with those vintage machines. LOL. I guess that what I am saying is that your thread will work as an inspiration for me. Thanks. :-D

    Here is a Christmas table topper made with scrappy fabrics. The machine used was a Singer 201k in treadle.

    It's not a quilt, yet, but here are some quilt squares that I made from "crumbs" and they were sewn on my Singer 301. This machine was able to sew the smallest scraps together without "eating" them.

    That's going to be a very pretty crumbs quilt! I love using up the crumbs this way. Looking forward to seeing your posting of the finished quilt. Thanks!

    Monica, I really love this quilt, it always reminds of Billy's root beer painted SM. Thank you again.

    Cathy, that crumb is gorgeous. I have been wanting to do one of those for about a year now. Let me get up and get started.

    Here are a couple of pictures of a quilt I made for my daughter. Her favourite colours are pink and green, but not necessarily together. It's the Sister's Choice pattern shown on Bonnie Hunter's website. The top was pieced on the Frister and Rossmann 1937 transverse shuttle which is shown in the thread Vintage Sewing Machine Shop Photos, http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-130994-6.htm and it was long arm quilted at the quilt shop. On the picture of the machine you can see the back of this quilt. It's hard to get a good photo of this quilt, the colours always look bleached out.

    I hope you particularly like the bad join in the border by the corner.

    I've already posted another quilt, which was pieced on a vintage Singer, at http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-132615-1htm

    I always do the border as blocks rather than a continuous strip

    Muv, Your quilt is beautiful! Don't worry about that corner. I always say a quilt must have some imperfection to it for the quilt to have a feeling of life...since life is never perfect for us...why should a quilt. Thanks for posting!

    I made a crumb quilt using my Singer 201K for the piecing and a Husqvarn Viking Sapphire 875 (the new girl) for the
    machine quilting.

    1936 Singer 201K treadle, it has the hand crank on because 2 little girls were learning to sew.

    You should post that old quilt that you rescued. I would love to see that quilt!

    Sharon, I love that crumb quilt with the colorful cactus border, works well with the large colorful squares!

    Thanks Monica! I bought the entire bolt of cacti fabric at a quilt show; the vendor found out that it was for charity quilts and gave my 20% off the bolt.
    I use it for my Linus Connection quilts, it goes well with the bright fabrics.

    That was very nice of her to help you out by giving you a discount. I like your bright fabrics for the crumb squares and this border fabric for you donation quilts to the Linus Connection. Great way to use up crumbs and at the same time help others. Way cool!
