What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read directions with a pencil in hand to make notes & be sure you are following the right cutting directions. Sometimes you have to do some from each section.

Wow Ladybev! This is outstanding work. And a treadle too!! Congrats - it's beautiful and I imagine a keeper too.

Thank you! Waiting for the fabric for the border, backing & binding I got a treadle machine but I didn't sew this on it! I bought the old machine & base back in October. My husband cleaned & restored them & then he built a replica oak desk top for it. It works but its for show, in my sewing room. I made this quilt to drape on the open lid.

Great job! Look at all the points you had to sew. I don't have that much patience for this type of quilt but yours is beautiful.
