Design Wall Monday: My Birthday

 This is the quilt I have been working on for some time. It is my own design and was done before I acquired EQ7. There was a bit of trial and error but I am finally almost done. There are a few more seams and then I will have to put the border on then it will be ready for quilting.
 On a side note. Tomorrow is my birthday. This was my present. I'm so excited to start using it. The only parts it was missing was the belt, bobbin case and the bobbins. There is a machine repair place near me that repairs all types of machines. I was able to get all the parts I needed (new). To get new bobbin cases for this machine seemed like it was going to be impossible, but they had bought out a place that had all kinds of antique new stock. YAY! Anyway, it is a White Rotary. Does anyone know how to thread the belt through? It looks pretty easy, but I want to be sure before I measure and cut.
This is the head of the machine. The front looks pretty good, but the back is a bit worn. The needle goes up and down pretty well when you turn the wheel. I can't wait to get going.
