Faith – what is it?

here is a definition that I love!!

I love my antique machines

I have several antique machines that I love to sew on. Some of them are treadles and others are handcranks. The handcranks are wonderful for my Granddaughter to use and she has been using them since she was 3 years old.
I have a goal of making a quilt on each of my machines that represent the year they were made and quilting the final designs on them using the same antique machine. I have seen videos of a lady quilting on her treadle. It totally fascinates me and I have got to try it sometime. You have to pedal fast and move the quilt as you go. I can see beautiful victorian feathers done this way but have not been successful in doing it.
Let me know if you use these machines in you quilting. It is so fun to exchange blocks with others who have antique machines. I have done this several times and would love to do it again.
Have a great week and God Bless you.

More photos are posted

I added more photos to the photos page. The slideshow is growing and now shows my original Hobby Quilter. I need to add a picture of the 18″ Nolting and now my new 24″ Nolting Pro. Hope you enjoy looking at them.
