Machine quilting with a vintage sewing machine

I’ve tuned up the vintage sewing machine to work on my latest endeavor, a quilt for our bedroom.  The machine is from the 40’s and works like a charm, after a little cajoling , oiling and tension adjustments.  Drafting experience has been handy because the latest tools for cutting fabric are a T-square and pizza cutter.  Very efficient.  I have a feeling the piecing will go easily but the actual quilting will be a bear.


I took a break and went for a hike with local women where we identified lots of spring plants – well I didn’t identify any but those in the know did, garter snakes and trompe l’oeil.
