"Ever since I looked at Amazon.ca for sewing machines, the site has been sending me ads on top of my computer, at the right side and in the middle of some comments. How can I tell them I already have a new machine?
I left Facebook. I…"
I like what you did with the orphan blocks. I've always been scared to work with blocks of different sizes, After seeing your quilt, I think that I could try one with purina checks. And I'd use the narrow…"
I just took in a quilt that was started by a neighbour at a beginning quilt class. She was an over-achiever and made it bigger, but she glued it together when sandwiching and there it has sat in the bottom of her closet for…"
"Oh Linda - everything you are working on is so beautiful!
Yes, Mary, Riana is a "finisher" But she can handle more than one project at a time and she is sympathetic about us quilters who "fall off the wagon" and have…"
"Chef Lisa and Gail, I think that the personality of quilters who work on only 1 project and get it finished before they start a new one and only buy for one project vs. us, who have lots of quilting projects in all stages of unfinish and have so…"
"Mary, the Murder Mystery Quilt is coming along beautifully.
I bought a new travelling sewing machine - the Janome 2030 QDC. It weighs 12 lbs. and has lots of nice features. I could have ordered a Janome Platinum 760 for about the same…"
"Thank you, Riana. I had 9 91/2" blocks and I did not want a wall hanging size so I framed each one with 2 1/2" strips and added 2 borders. The frames and borders fabrics are the same but not the same as in the blocks…"
Thank you. It's been snowing here on and off for 3 days. First thing in the morning I heard the snow plow cleaning out the condo's parking lot. Of course, that is better than when he comes in the middle of the…"
I hope that your burn will heal quickly. I know we have to be patient with healing. My surgery still hurts me. But I am back to my quilting. I just finished the Sampler Quilt below this morning. Next project is…"
"2 of my friends helped me sandwich a quilt yesterday. It is my 5th UFO this year. It is a Sampler. I could call it an orphan block quilt too.
I think it is nice to help each other. The woman who has helped me by closing the…"
"I managed to finish the Hopscotch Quilt and the Puzzle Box Quilt done - nos. 3 and 4 UFOs for 2018. This year is off to a good start. My next UFO is a Sampler Quilt. The batting still has to be cut and pieced. I won't be…"
If you downloaded the pattern from her blog, it should be a file on your computer and you can just attach the file to an email. Otherwise, if you scan it to your computer, again it will have a file name and can be attached. I'm not in any hurry to start...so many other things to do and my good machine is in the shop. But thank you so much for helping me out!
The "wood grain" quilting sounds interesting, can't wait to see the whole quilt done.Remember l signed up for the free online longarm class? lt said for best results, use a computor ( instead of tablet etc.) , so l closed it, deciding to use computor later. Now it won't come up.l wonder if there was a time limit.l wish l'd taken it on the tablet, even if not as good as on computor.
Smart idea, about the mug rugs...l would never have thought of fabric gluing...l'd have probably gone to snipping/pulling out the poor handwork , washed & redone w/machine. Not likely a" profitable" use of time:)
