I've been sewing on one of my treadles. These blocks were made on the 1896 Singer treadle for a block exchange that is due in September. I have more fabric cut out to sew into these blocks.

If I could machine quilt (no, I can't, I've tried and tried), I'd machine quilt something on one of my treadles as an example. Free motion quilting and I just don't get along. Stitch in the ditch is the best I can do.

I am going to the Loosen & Lube TOGA (Treadle On Gathering and Academy) in Wisconsin this weekend. I will (hopefully) learn lots about how to clean my machines and get them all working. I'm also hoping that I will be able to convert a few machines and treadle heads into hand cranks. We'll see. The blocks on the bottom (Rail Fence) were made on the 1896 treadle for the TOBE (Treadle On Block Exchange) at the TOGA. I still have to sign them and list what machine they were made on. I'm getting sew excited! I'll take pictures and blog about it when I get back.
Have a great weekend!
