I have been quilting for almost a year, made 2 quilts I have loved, and now I am in the beginning stages of designing a quilt for my grandson's twin bed, 3 years old. Every time I start the process of figuring out how I want to design a quilt, I get so much anxiety, I made the carpenter's star, now I want to try and design the quilt around it. I get cranky and tired, at times I want to give up. That's where I am right now. I am frustrated with myself, I am worried I will not be able to figure something
Does anyone suggest any old sewing machine reliable that
is light weight for travel, and does at least zigzag? I see the
little singers for $100. but I can't think that it would last.
I am looking at yard sales, but even to get one and fix it up
is going to be $100.
Well I think I am getting my self in a fix, LOL such a lovely place to be. I have been thinking I need to get a little red barn shed to sit next to my dye cottage, for my finished quilts and hand dyed fabric, that I will have for sale. Now think I will need it it more than ever, as I have a new disease called machine-itess, I really have enough machines, 4 Pfaff 7570's which I love dearly. And a couple of other Pfaffs and a Pfaff serger. One nolting mid arm, and 4 little beauties, my Singer 221's,

For all I know, the person who had this on her site may actually be a member here. If so, GOOD JOB!
You win most adorable quilt in my book............
Hi all, my name is Anna and I live in Orange California, I was introduce to this wonderful world of quilting by a coworker about 3 years ago, she showed me some of the quilts she had made and I just felt in love with them, I told my husband about it and he right away looked into buying the basic tools for me to start quilting. I apologize if I didn't post this info correctly, I'm new to this I will try to show you the pics of my 2 quilts that I have made so far.
I have spent months working on my grandson's wedding quilt, now I am down to the label. I have written so many trial labels I am dizzy.. I am not sure what is best. Here is the basic info...
It is their wedding present from me.. the groom's grandmother
The date I am going to put on it is July 2013 - the month of their wedding.. the day is the 27th. Should I include that?
I NEVER use my given name.. but should I use it here as the maker? They might even be shocked
This star may turn out to be the center of a bed quilt for my youngest grandson's bed.
[QUOTE=Lori S;6164625]Just a note if a fabric says "Kona" it is Kaufman.. Kona is a registered trademark of Robert Kaufman. No other manufacture can legally use its name.
