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.

Another Jelly Roll Race quilt
I was rooting through my 2 1/2" strip drawer that contains leftovers of fabric from many years of sewing and got into the mood to sort the colours. There were a lot of the 1980's greens/teals in there and some purple and mauves that went together nicely. I supplemented them from the comfort quilt stash at the Hearts and Hands Quilt Guild that I belong to and put together a Jelly Roll Race quilt from it. This quilt has 48 strips in it and makes a nice lap quilt. I trimmed 2 1/2" off the sides to make the finished size 55" x 62 1/2". We even had the perfect floral fabric in the backing stash. I quilted it with an overall swirly flower pattern and it's already being used by a chemo patient at our local hospital. She loved the purple and greens. (Click on the photos to enlarge)
