Your call for the End of the Year Show got me thinking I've been playing with sewing machines way too much and sewing way too little this year! Only small projects got done although there's a quilt in the works. Here's the most recent small project, a pair of potholders, made because they were needed. Obviously just simple 9 patch patterns, both were entirely done on my 1919 128 HC. Love that machine! She's so quiet with her lovely, precise stitching.

Heart mug rugs, from a blog pattern ("Valentine Mug Rugs" by Poorhouse Quilt Designs) (Note, opens as a .pdf)
I used cheerful fabrics from my stash to sew this pair, on my 1950's vintage German tailor's treadle (Baer & Remple Phoenix 249). Both pieced and and quilted on this treadle.

Pie crust potholders. No pattern, I did my own thing to make these similar to project photos from the web.
A fun way to use realistic-looking fruit fabrics from my stash, great for gifts, too. Layered with both Insul-brite and cotton batting, machine-quilted as I applied the piecrust lattice strips to the top of the layered, round quilt sandwich.
Quilted and bound on my 1950's German tailor's treadle, a Phoenix 249. I found it helpful to have this treadle sewing machine that allows me to orient the needle both to the right and left of center when stitching this project

These are table runners. They were done on the Davis Vertical Feed.
I made these to be donated to the craft sale place at Rollag, Mn.
It is a big steam threshers thing we donate time and crafts to. It happen every Sept. Labor day weekend.
It is Western Minnesota Steam Thresher reunion.
I donate sewing things to them because I can't do the hard physical work anymore.

I usually make bed size quilts but this past year decided it would be fun to make some smaller quilts for tables and treadles.

Patriotic snowballs is a 16" square candle/table mat, pieced on my 1920's National 2 Spool treadle and machine quilted and bound on my 1886 Davis Vertical Feed (VF1) treadle

Rainbow mug rugs were sewn on my 1886 Davis Vertical Feed treadle.

A quilted mug mat with a computer-printed image from a gross cartoon series that my son likes. Sewn on my Singer 66-1 treadle called 'Betsy' as a refresh exercise to get back into sewing after the Christmas pig-out on cookies and candy!
