I promised a picture...

Here it is - all done (okay, I still need to do the label but that is easy-peasy!)
I didn't have enough of any one fabric to use for the binding so I went scrappy, but then I prefer scrappy bindings anyway so it all worked out. I plan to run it through the wash since I had to do so much ripping so there are needle holes in some of the fabrics. Then I will buy a nice red ribbon and once we are done in Colorado I will tie it up all pretty! I really don't think quilts need wrapping!

My husband found this machine on Craig's List this week so I now own a working treadle machine. I haven't tried it out yet but it is supposed to work anyway.

I just love the design of the foot pedal! Now that I have a real working machine I will have to teach myself how to use it.
