Easy machine quilting and it is done in a jiffy. I used brights for this quilt and since it was a boy, a juvenile bright print for the back! Mom to be loved it! I cut up the left over fabrics and they are bagged to make another! Just add a backing! Thanks to the board for this design!

  7. Hand Quilting question

    by , 09-06-2016 at 03:06 PM
    Hello Everyone,

    I am trying to perfect my hand quilted stitch and was hoping someone could enlighten me on a question I have. I have read several books and posts online that say your quilting stitches should be around 10-12 even stitches per inch. So my question do you count the stitches? Do you count each stitch on top and bottom of fabric...every time your needle goes into the fabric...up and down...or just the actual stitches you can see on the top of the fabric?

    anyway the reason I'm telling you this is I found a NEW PRODUCT called Handi Grip to put on your rulers for cutting
    out patterns and using quilting rulers.
    Over the years I have tried everything for sale and some not to
    figure a way for my rulers not to slip when I am ...

    The colored strips are now 2-1/4" ...
  10. White treadle in beautiful cabinet

    by , 09-02-2016 at 09:39 AM
    Hello new friends. I just found your group and joined because a kind person on Craigslist has been talking with me about my antique White. We are beginning to downsize. For many years I have had two antique sewing machine cabinets that I have used as tables in my rooms because of their quaint beauty. One of them contains the machine and has many attachments in original cases and bobbins with very old threads. I had never opened the machine nor items boxed in its drawers in all these years until ...
