    Recognize any of these machines?

    Hehee. I'm participating in a Row by Row quilting group. After much thought about my theme, I decided to go with 'My Sewing Room". So, what could possibly be more appropriate than to put a few of my antique machines to fabric?

    These pieces are only cut out - they are not yet sewn or appliqued onto any background fabric. And I'm not far enough into the project to figure out the next step but I thought you might have fun seeing them in the moment.

    Okay, so who can name each of the machines? Do you need a hint?

    best,
    d

    I want to say the first one is a Davis, but that doesn't seem right. Second one is a Singer 12...fiddlebase, and the last one a Wilcox and Gibbs.

    Charlee,
    You shouldn't question yourself. It is the Davis.

    Your quilt is going to be awesome. I look forward to seeing the finished quilt.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I agree we need a tutorial or a pattern of how they are made. They would make a beautiful wall hanging with my spools. Love it.

    There are no words to tell you how wonderful they are but try "OUTSTANDING"
    Oh yes, when and where will you post the tut/pattern and instructions for each? You are one talented lady!

    How did you make these? Freeform, or did you have a pattern?
