Picket Fence in Spring Quilt is Finished!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

I've finally finished my Picket Fence in Spring quilt, three months after I originally showed her to you in this post!  I did not put any borders on her, so she finishes up at 48" square.  
Today is such a beautiful day to take pictures of a fresh spring quilt!

Picket Fence in Spring is quilted in an allover, fairly dense meandering loop on Mrs. Singer, my vintage 1896 Singer 31-15 machine.  She crinkled up nicely in the wash!  

Her backing is just as pretty as the front!

Here you can see the depth that washing brings to the quilting.

Quilt Stats:
  • Name:  Picket Fence in Spring
  • Pattern:  My own.
  • Fabric Top, Backing and Binding:  Top quality quilt-shop fabric from a variety of designers, Urban Chiks, Holly Holderman, Lecein, etc.
  • Size:  48" square.
  • Binding:  Double layer attached completely by machine for long-term durability.
  • Batting: Warm and Natural 100% cotton.
  • Quilting:  Allover fairly dense meandering loops in white polyester thread on my vintage 1896 Singer 31-15 retrofitted to a quilting frame.
  • Value:  Adorably sweet!
This quilt has sold, but you'll find more like it in my Etsy shop!

This is such a happy quilt!
And isn't it so much fun to quilt on treadles!

@ Dora,
Mrs.Singer is an electric machine with a speed regulator attached. She has been retrofitted onto a quilting frame. She does not have a treadle.

Looks beautiful, congrats on a great finish! Gotta love the old machines, Mrs. Singer has a speed regulator???? Thanks for sharing!
Quilting at the River Linky Party Tuesday

@ Connie,
Mrs.Singer has a variable speed regulator which is not a stitch regulator. It keeps her sewing at a steady speed; whether that be very slow or VERY fast. It is still up to me to move her smoothly to keep the stitches the same length.
