Hi...my name is Shari. I am looking for someone to partner up with on my quilting. I have great machines and am looking for someone who has cutting and piecing skills and whatever else we can learn from each other. I have been quilting for about 20 years and would love to share new ideas and techniques. My son is a webpage builder and has built a lovely site. Now I just need to put somethings on it. If you are interested my number is 503 312 9233
I agree, stitches are counted from the top side.
Hi Matty, this is beautiful. I would just stitch in the ditch.
I recently cleaned a singer treadle machine I purchased. There are many youtube videos you can watch in order to do this correctly. Be careful not to use anything abrasive on your machine. Also most people want the cabinet it prime condition if you replace any parts that are damaged keep list so buyer knows what is not original. good luck, you may not sell after your done.
I just order Handi Grip from Amazon
My husband has a lot of different sand paper, I even tried it but the handgrip is thinner and like you said keeps ruler from moving just when you get to the end of the fabric. Finally something that stops that. I am also quilting with rulers and it helps a lot. Jazzelise
Congrats on getting the new Sweet Sixteen. A friend recently got one and is quilting like a crazy woman.
About the gripper stuff. I found something similar in the medical aisle at the local CVS drug store. It's called Nex-Gen and it's a medical tape. Clear in nature with a rough side opposite the sticky side. It has made a huge difference in my cutting life. Much more accurate as the ruler doesn't slip.
It would be heavy and difficult when you are finishing it. ( Unless you have a long arm ) Why not make a rag quilt of flannel. It would wash well an stand up to the sand etc.
you count the stitches you see on top of your quilt. Sounds like you are doing a good job.
It would be very heavy.
I would love to find this pattern... Can you help? Thanks
Sounds like a very colorful, fun project. My one concern is, will it be washable?
Another option is denim.
