Easy Street & new old machines to my collection

(This is an older post but was delayed so some of this you might have already read about) I finally got my Easy street Mystery (by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville )assembled except the borders.been auditioning fabric for the border.I believe I am going to do a small navy blue batik then the butterfly fabric in the turquoise I have as the main large border. here are a few pictures of the quilt itself together.

Coochie decided to make her self at home :) My sweet Shih Tzu
(But stubborn are there any that aren"t?)

here is the close up of both blocks
I also have been out garage sailing here at our home in Florida so I got a nice Standard Treadle machine last Sunday for $20.00 and today I got a Singer coffin style machine # 99 for $ 25.00 .both had nice decals and the wheel moved freely with both.The Standard had a lot of lint and quite a bit of rust to rub off.I got it clean but had to use steel wool and rub quite a bit. Nice cabinet needed a belt and I need a book so checking into them.I need a leg bar for the coffin machine so might be a while for that unless I can use a foot pedal will need to research it .

The quilt is looking lovely, but not as cute as your Shih Tzu! I have two Bichon/Shih Tzu dogs, and right now 5 puppies too! They are stubborn eh? *smiles*

Your quilt is beautiful Debby! (and the puppy too!) I am working on clue 5 of Bonnie's Celtic Solstice. She posted the final reveal yesterday and it is gorgeous. Can't wait to get my top pieced together. Happy New Year! Enjoy the warm tropical breezes. We have had quite a bit of snow in the last 24 hours. It is fluffy and everything looks very pretty dusted with it. :)
