My pal Julie...

This is my good friend Julie....I gave her this
Singer 301A for Christmas.  We named her Eleanor.  

Julie loves Eleanor!

Julies piecing has improved so much since she has started
sewing first on my 301A Betsy and now on hers...Eleanor. I think she is hooked on Vintage Singers now! Yea!

So far she has made this Seattle Seahawks quilt for her sister Kathy.  She made it using the Arkansas Crossings pattern, super quick and with great results!

We backed it with this great neon green fabric that
I got for a super great price!

I longarmed quilted it for her using my "go to" loopy
loops.  I wrote "Go Seahawks" and her sisters name "Kathy" in the lower border of the quilt.

It turned out great! I am so proud of Julie and how
far she has come with her quilting skills...

Yay Yay Yay!


  1. Congratulations to Julie on completing her first quilt!
    Such a fun project and it turned out wonderful.
    Her sister will love it and I bet that with you as her mentor Julie is now officially a Quilter!

  2. Very nice and I'm just a tad bit jealous of your 301s. I've been hunting for one on and off myself.

  3. life is better sewing on a vintage Singer!
