  1. Machine quilting with Decorative stitches

    by , 10-10-2013 at 11:24 AM
    I have a Pfaff creative 2.0 sewing/embroidery machine. When I use stitch #89 to quilt gingerbread scallops on my roofs, on my quilt sandwich, the bobbin thread shows on the top. The original tread tension is 9. I've reduced it as far as possible and still the bobbin thread shows. When I take the same stitch and do it on a single piece of fabric the bobbin thread is fine.

    Hi I'm attempting my first binding efforts on placemats without much success! Should I sew binding to front or back and how wide should my binding be? Thanks
  7. Traveling with my sewing machine!

    After getting back from the AQS show in Des Moines (still just thinking about those jaw-dropping quilts!), I realized that my house was showing my lack of cleaning attention and have to host bunco next week--so really dug in and did some of that "deep" cleaning Managed to get the WWII Vet quilt cut (pretty simple pattern--I hope!) and got the Guild newsletter "to bed" and managed to do some sample quilting on the long arm for my new business--but no real work yet.

  9. Biblical-based pieced blocks

If not the fruits then a source of other biblical charaters or events in the Bible. Need five to seven different blocks to use in the border. Sure appreciate the help! Chris
