Treadleon Year End Show 2015 - And Yet More Quilts


"Love Ring", signature lap quilt for a dear friend during her treatment for Leukemia...pieced on my 1890's Davis Vertical Feed treadle (love the VF for curved-seam piecing!), and quilted with my 1950's German tailor's treadle.

Thanksgiving Wallhanging, 32 x 34".
Pieced on my c. 1910 Jones hand-crank, hand-appliqued, hand-embroidered , and hand-quilted. HC machines are ideal for piecing short seams, such as piecing together the "fan blade" of this Dresden plate design.

Cheerful "Hugs and Kisses (X's and O's ) baby quilt, made for my daughter's dear girlfriend and her first baby (girl). I love sewing curved-seam quilt blocks (the Drunkard's Path "O's") with my 1890's Davis Vertical Feed treadle. The X-block units were pieced on my 1900 Jones HC, and I quilted the finished top on my 1950's German tailor's treadle (Phoenix 249). Isn't it nice to be able to use an assortment of sewing machines for a project, where each one excels at a different task?

I have attached a picture of a pieced tulip/modified 9 patch quilt I made for a customer earlier this year. It was made for a queen sized bed but was more along the lines of king size. Something like 112" x 96". I used various machines to make it. Most of the piecing and quilting was done on an 1893ish Davis VF treadle. Some of the half square triangles were pieced on an 1889 Singer 28 hand crank and the outer edge was quilted on an 1894 Favorite treadle made by New Home as a quilt as you go and attached to the quilt body.
Happy sewing,
Lori from Western Maryland
