Hi my name is Eric,
I am new here. I have been quilting for a year now... still no where near pro. I have a question. I have been wanting to make a large quilt of quilts for picnics, outdoor concerts, Pride Events etc... but I know that regular fabrics would not be good for sitting on repeatedly.
I have been thinking about making a quilt out of upholstery fabrics... I have a ton of scraps in all colors because my partner is a decorator and upholsterer.... What do you think

The quilt fabric isn't in the Potluck line and I can't seem to find it anywhere. So, anyone know the name of the fabric in the quilt??????

I would love to complete my sewing machine, the Pfaff 1222e.
I am missing the plastic tray that fits under the free arm.
When in place, it holds the extension table, the manual, the foot pedal and odd feet etc.. Happy to pay a reasonable price for the unit. Anyone out there that will make me happy and sell me the plastic tray? Robert Brower firstname.lastname@example.org

Last spring I bought a starter set of Sew Steady Westalee templates and rulers along with a ruler foot to fit my domestic machine from my LQS. The guys there are so funny; whenever they get something new in, they tell me "We got something you need..." I had never seen these, but the clamshell template really caught my interest. I've been trying to do consistent

So here's the quick version. I made this quilt for an ESL student of mine. I've tutored her and her younger brother for a year and we are heartbroken to have to part ways. They're moving two hours away.
It was Lilly's birthday present and I used her favorite colors. I quilted special

I have been working with three color theme from my daughter's wedding. I decided to do a disappearing 9 patch. but now I've dut them into triangles and it looks like a mish-mash. I'm frustrated. Any suggestions?
