I'm an intermediate quilter, but I'm wanting to use my tailed machines less, and learn to use my treadle more. Does anyone know of a good quilt-along or BOM that is also a skill-building type for old school sewists?

I guess not. 😁 Looks like I'll have to create one!

Dave's wife writing. I use a treadle machine to piece. I am not good at free motion quilting on any machine. Before actually sewing on the machine, I would recommend practicing treadling. As often as possible you want to be able to start and stop your machine with your feet. You need to develop a smooth rhythm and maintain the proper rotation. I recommend taking the needle and bobbin out plus raising the presser foot before practicing. Harriet Hargrave has a series of books called Quilter's Academy. Four books for building skills. Hope this helps.
