    by , Yesterday at 11:19 PM
    Well its been a long month waiting for the next step in the Scrap Dance Mystery Quilt. I hope to wake up in the morning to a most anticipated email for the 2nd step.

    I have 315 half square triangles all sewn and trimmed to 2 1/2 inches. I am doing my background fabric in black. My original plan was to make a queen size until I saw how many HST I would need. lol

    Im anxious to see what it is I am making.

  8. Recommend best older machine for leather/heavy upholstery fabrics?

    by , 02-05-2016 at 10:45 AM
    Hi there, I am new to the quilting board so hope I am posting in the right place. I am looking for a heavy duty (industrial? Commercial grade?) sewing machine that can handle multiple layers of leather and fabric. As a hobby, I have lately been sewing bags/purses and my Bernina just cannot handle the thickness of the leather/fabric together, let alone trying to sew leather straps.

    Any recommendation for older, very affordable sewing machines great for leather and upholstery? ...

    Well I have been so excited to make this mystery quilt the suspense to find out the next step is driving me nuts. Two weeks still to go.
