My first quilt was so fast and easy I feel like I can learn by taking it to the next level, so I'm planning on using the same techniques with smaller squares and a twin sized quilt. I've been drooling over quilts with color fades since the early 90s and with my art background and the current ombré trend I figured now would be a good time to play with that.
I did some math and determined that 5 inch squares are the most cost effective option if I use 1/2 yard increments. For twin sized
Looking for Mr Whiskers Alley Cat Tales quilt pattern. when I do a web search the shops listed as having the pattern are closed.
Would be willing to pay for the pattern my daughter loves cats.
I have a Design-A-Quilter and I am not sure how old it is. I was wondering if anyone knows if I can get parts for it. I know the place where they made these are no longer in business but I was hoping someone could help me. I have had it for several years and the only thing I have had to replace is the motor that runs the machine and that was not easy. I am looking for some other parts that need to be replaced. I hope someone out there can help me get what I need because I can not afford a new

I thought I had this in here, but guess not. He's been after me all the time, wants all my quilts. He put dubs on these blocks and this is what he got.
Just finished the binding around it, which is white. Not the best picts. but here goes.
I started mine a couple of years ago -- have been posting pictures on the Yahoo Group site. I had fallen behind in my quest to work on it in numerical order. I had about 30 blocks done when the local quilt shop decided to start up a group and we meet once a month. They decide to use good ole math and the Marti Mitchel templates. I decided it was a good time to start back up.
I am completely caught up with them and am ready to go back to numerical order until our next meeting.
Another grandson and his quilt just about done. Will probably finish it by Friday and attach picts. Then I need to start working on ideas for VBS and maybe make the neighbor a quilt. My last quilt will be for my Christmas granddaughter that is the youngest of my four, so will have to come up with something special for her birthday and Christmas present. It took me so long to get into the mood to sew this winter and my machine has been acting up too. Oh well, next blog will have picture.
Hi everyone, I am new to the blog thing, in fact this is the first thing I have ever posted. I bought a used Grace Machine Quilter with a Juki TL 98 machine. Included was a black box called Quilter's Cruise Control but it does not have any connections. I think it needs the optical encoder hardware and probably the stylus but does anyone know what else I am missing and where to find the parts? There was also a speed control box with a thread cutter button and a large foot pedal that also has a thread

If you use the designs shown here, enlarge to a 9.5" unfinished block and trace the star as needed
