    I have a Singer machine that I use for quilt tops and some quilting. I'd like to purchase a machine to do fancy quilting but dont have room for a long arm? Does anyone have suggestions for a good machine for quilting?

    Hi Cecelia;

    The one I made before was black and gray and turned out nice too so I am sure that your idea of greens and tans would be great.
    The pattern is "Paradigm Shift" from McCalls quilting. I think

    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
  5. 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.

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

  9. AQS show in Des Moines has completely knocked me out!

    by , 10-03-2013 at 10:00 PM
    No! Seriously--the quilts where just breathtaking--kept muttering to myself "look at that! WOW!"--and I wore out before I even saw everything!
    Couldn't get any buddies to go with me for the first 2 days of the EVENT--I wanted to take a couple of long arm classes and couldn't be there on Friday-Sunday due to home stuff. So drove the 3 hours to DM by myself and stayed withing a block of the show. Even the hotel was a hoot! Can you imagine an entire hotel filled with quilters ...
