Wow! That's a really cool machine! Now, who polished it, you or your wife?

I'm not sure

Not sure if it was my wife that mentioned the the civil war fabric, but she is just finishing (binding?) a quilt that she used civil war pattern fabrics on. I think it is my favorite so far will post a photo in next day or so.

Beautiful. Did you know you can purchase replacement decals on e-bay - though gold decals on a silver sewing machine - Well you'd look more at home in a Silver Streak than an Airstream.

There's a guy in Anaheim that started out painting FW's and he was having problems with the vender down south. I turned him on to a chopper builder in Orange County (California) that did exotic tank paint jobs. When I found out that the FW's were aluminum, I had him polish one for my wife. He usually has a booth at Road to California. His name is Les and he has a sewing machine collection that is fantastic. i have the decals, but why screw it up?

I am using a civil war era fabric on one of my quilts. At least I was told that Louisa from Moda was from that era.

Somewhat related to this thread about quilters and their Airstreams: I belong to a group of quilters that meets monthly at our local conservation center. Called Nature's Needlers, we do monthly squares or projects that must be connected to Missouri wildlife. I've not belonged long, but the group is a dozen years old. One of their yearly projects in 2004 was a Lewis and Clark quilt, made up of squares that related to nature and the LandC trek across Missouri, based on their journals. The plan took some leeway with the "nature" theme, including a square that represented their keelboat. Others squares were of the river, birds, animals, grasses, and so on, a lovely quilt that I hope to make someday. The current year's project is a 12 square wall hanging that represents looking through window panes onto a back yard in Missouri scene. I've missed out on this since I've just spent over a year caring for my mother who recently passed away, but I have a new machine, new interest and energy, and plan to get back in the thick of quilting again. Thought some of you might be interested in a quilting group with such a local state-centered theme. ~G

The design comes with a few sparklies, but I'm not putting them anywhere else on the jacket. There is a fine line between cute and overdone. the cat design is on the left front and I am putting a paw prints going up the opposite sleeve and around the collar.
