A friend of mine recently let me know about a toy sewing machine I might be interested in that would be for sale. Another friend hand carried it to me. And here it is!
BTW, that pink quilt top was purchased at a local antique fair a few years ago. I am generally not a pink girl, but I do love old double pink fabrics. In fact, here is a pink and brown quilt I made about ten years ago.
I quilted this on the Bernina 155 that I had at the time. I had purchased it used with money I had earned working tax season that year. I had always heard how great these were for free motion quilting. This was the first (only?) quilt that I free motion quilted on it. Frankly, it wasn’t any better than my 1955 Singer 201 for free motion work. I did use that machine for straight line quilting until I bought an older Bernina, my 1030. The 155 ended up doing closet time until I sold it last year. More expensive machines are not necessarily better.
Unless you are talking about my long arm. Worth every single penny.
