New Machine That Can……GASP….Free Motion Quilt!

Even though this *new* (found on craigslist, I believe it is vintage, but I can’t find much info online) to me machine has only a few stitch functions it feels like bells and whistles to me 🙂  My other machine is a Singer 201 and is a straight stitch only machine.  It came with all sorts of feet and it sews like a dream!  I decided to try free motion quilting on it, and it makes beautiful stitches!  Free motion quilting is a lot harder than I expected.  Kinda like patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time.  It takes loads of practice to make it look halfway decent I have concluded.  Much harder than straight stitch quilting for sure.  Here is a picture of the new lady 🙂  It is a Riccar 1570.  If anyone has any more info on it, I would love to know anything!

I decided to tackle the rest of the doll quilts in waiting with a design I came up with.  I am sharing it here with you!  I only ask that if you use it for personal use only and credit me if you post online.

Here are some of the doll quilts I made using the pattern.  I will be listing them in my etsy shop later this week

Ok, now I must go to bed.  It is plain ridiculous for me to be up this late! Night!
