Vintage Quilt Top

I was in Colorado the first part of June and found this great utility quilt top at a thrift store.  I like shirtings and I love utility quilts. So I purchased it and this weekend I basted it and machine quilted it with a simple cross hatch then bound it in a reproduction fabric.  I am very pleased with how it turned it.

String Quilt

Here are some quick pics of a string quilt I recently finished from group blocks for HeartStrings, it measures roughly 48 x 62 inches.  Was quite fun and was quilted in a fun square type meander.

New Treadle Sewing Machine

I just recently purchased this treadle sewing machine at an auction for a little bit of nothing. I am hoping to be able to find a correct shuttle bobbin and slide plate as well as a bobbin for this machine. I am posting pictures here so my friends on a vintage sewing machine sight can help me out.

It has been quite a while....

But since I have moved, and my health has improved greatly, I have been working on some charity quilts for a couple groups that I belong too. Sunshine Quilts and Heartstrings Quilt Project.  It certainly feels good to start getting back to doing the things that I love to do.

Here are a few photographs of the quilts. Sorry about the lighting, my lawn is very shady which is wonderful in the summer, but not so much for photographs.
