  2. Sandwiching quilts

I'm too old to crawl around on the floor anymore, so any helpful hints, suggestions would be appreciated!

  4. Snail's Trail and Storm at Sea Quilt on Pinterest

    by , 10-01-2015 at 03:02 PM
    Rebecca S. put this quilt on Pinterest and it is absolutely beautiful. I am kind of new to quilting, but would love to do this quilt for myself.
    I understand that Snail's Trail is a pattern and Storm at Sea is a pattern, and that in the quilt those two patterns were combined. If Rebecca S. could tell me where she got the pattern, I would surely appreciate it.

    It's been awhile since I've posted! So much has happened in the last year! I recently re-married in July of 2014 to a wonderful man James! Love him bunches and bunches! Between the two of us we have two homes, well, we decided to sell the current home in town and move back to the home in the country! We are under contract with the house in town and have been transitioning. We are in our late 50's, not spring chickens anymore...it's been wearing us out! But, we will survive! I have a baby ...

  8. Quilting in the hoop on the embroidery machine

    You only have to hoop the back and do the stipple quilting (pre-programed) and then hoop the front sections (really easy directions to follow). It puts the zipper in and everything. No other machine needed for sewing.

  9. Singer lubricant

    by , 09-24-2015 at 01:05 PM
    I have an old Singer 15-91 and do not have the lubricant that came with it. Must I use the old type lubricant or can I use the new lubricant for sale on Amazon. Sometimes I see Featherweight referred to on the new lubricant. Does this make a difference. Thank you.

    Hope this helps everyone whose been asking for more information. Glad you all have enjoyed my quilt. I will attach a copy of it as well so
