This blog is intended as a bulletin board to show the quilts I've been making on my vintage and treadle sewing machines. My husband and I collect antique and vintage sewing machines and I use them to make all my quilts. Here are some of the results.

Wedding quilt for Justine and Michael
We were invited to a wedding for two young friends last week. I had this quilt top in my UFO drawer and decided to quilt it up for Michael and Justine's wedding. This is a spinning four patch pattern where you cut four identical repeats of fabric, layer them exactly, cut into strips and then cut into squares. Each set of squares can be arranged in four different ways. I sashed them in yellow, blue and green kona cotton strips without any extra borders. Unfortunately, I didn't have any of the original fabric left to put in the backing. It was quilted with a spiral/flower on my domestic, vintage Bernina 830.
