Old Quilt Pictures

Pin It

When we travel I take pictures of quilt too. I "ALWAYS" ask before taking pictures, to date I've not had anyone say, "NO" and most say thanks for asking.

 These 2 quilts are from a Shop in Chillicothe, MO

Notice the red's and how it's the color that has stayed the best over the years 



This is a simple 16 block square, each square was cut 2" x 2"
for a finished block of 6" x 6", quilting had been recently done by machine, blocks were also machine pieced.


Baskets set on point with out squares with lots of quilting

In the winter I started with one quilt on our bed and as the months go on even here in Florida, I add quilts as needed.  I had 3 quilts on the bed this year. I was removing them to wash and put away and decided to take a couple of pictures. 

I machine pieced this quilt and had it long arm quilted.

black and white quilt

I used scraps for the back and just had fun.



Used no pattern just pieced and let it happen.

My Singer Sewing Machine

Pin It
I knew it was in the closet and seeing it again....
It's been a very long time
I had to say good-bye to it's original box years ago and this carpet bag 
is perfect for it.

A Singer Feather Weight




My mom gave this to me years ago and I used it for classes for years. 
She tells the story behind it.  This sewing machine was the first thing that her and my Father purchased together. She remember is being around 70.00 dollars. If they did it on payments my Grandfather would have to co-sign. They saved and purchased with cash, she said with a very large smile.  The pedal was replaced sometime ??


It works wonderful 


And So Pretty

I like to trim the seam allowance so when it's quilted it's easier.
