So, 20 squares ( 4 across X 5 down) would make it 32" x 40" and takes 20 (10") squares... In a yard of fabric (36" X 42") you can cut 12 (10") squares (3 across X 4 ) so,

    I am using SR2 longarm frame with Janome 1600P machine and get skipped stitches (was working fine). Could it be the thread? I'm using star thread , 100% cotton fabric with warm and natural batting. Organ 90/14 DP needle. What would you suggest?

    [QUOTE=Doggramma;6857828]Wow that sure is an impressive quilt! Maybe next time you could do the blocks bigger? It would still be heavy, but you'd be done quicker.[/QUO


    Great idea Lori but still not making one like this. Thank you for your comments.

  6. Sports Jersey Quilt

    by , 08-20-2014 at 11:12 AM
    A girl I work with came up to me and asked if I was interested in a project. Her son is now 23 and his days of playing in organized sports is over but he has all these jerseys left and instead of throwing them out, she has been saving them. I have quilted before but nothing like this, so when she asked me, with my "I can do anything I set my mind to" attitude, I told her I would. Ive gotten inspired by lots of images online and picked out the backing and batting. I plan on using a lot ...

    That is exactly what my husband wants to happen. Too many of our young folk dismiss machines that are not push button. Our hope is that real machines, with opportunity, will turn the heads of our youth and increase their creativity

  9. Rehoming and A Sewing Room

    by , 08-19-2014 at 01:38 PM
    Climax Kate is happily rehomed. Good thing, because my new sewing room is already filling faster than I ever imagined. Tonight, a Domestic White is going to a family so their Granny can teach the kids how to sew. More to do, and less time than I ever imagined.

    At least I know what I love and act accordingly. Time is just that, time. My machines wait for me. Somedays, I wish the rest of the world would.

It's a old quilt block pattern that I redesigned. It was great for using up some small pieces of scrap. How many different fabrics? I'm not sure but I can tell you there's over 50, might be closer to 100. Some dating back at least 40 years, some brand new...and don't tell anybody but there's a few sheets and shirts in there too, it'll
