I am wondering what kind of iron do you use?? Which one is best for
all around ironing as well as for quilt piecing?? Not too expensive, as I
am on a very tight budget.. this board is so helpful, thank you !

It allows you to bring in letters from a folder to spell names /words, add small designs....and save back to your folder to stitch out as a single design. It only works with .pes and only 4x4, 5x7, and 7x5, but hopefully more sizes will come later. There is a YouTube video to see how it works. I like it a lot for quick merging of letters for names., and I think it is

I want one of these little sewing machines!
Has anyone used the John Flynn method to make a DWR? I've used the Sharlene book & it seemed confusing. Is J.F. method easier, different, worse, better. Thanks

Have been longarm quilting for a couple of years now. I have a Tin Lizzie machine. I would like to know how to take the quilt off and reload so I can do feathers around the borders. Is this difficult?
Yesterday I upgraded my machine to a Husqvarna Viking ( a reconditioned machine). I felt I was comfortable with it, so I thought I would try to get my quilt basted (using basting spray) together and try to quilt the thing. However……. This machine had some stitching options and so I thought it would look nice to use the ivy looking stitching on the boarder of the quilt and I made a complete mess of it. I was not use to the machine and kind of jumbled it up in a few spots, had the tension too
Did 2 charity quilts last week--one was a quick panto--worked great. Tried that for the 2nd one--what a disaster! It was just not a square quilt and the panto took off on the diagonal. So stopped and proceeded to "unsew" about 10" x lenght of quilt, which took almost 2 days! Then started over with SID and some ruler work, plus feathers in the borders. Not my proudest work but it's done!
Now it's time to work on some of my own Christmas stuff--a preprinted panel

So here are the extra pieces. These are all the newer ones that have the part number stamped on them.
