    Well, today is Labor and I know many go to the Lake and cook out. I will spend my labor day sewing. Which for me is relaxation! I send hours and days sewing and find no problem with. My sewing area is a corner in my living room, I get to be with my family and sew at the same time. Today I will work on finishing the Reunion quilt and then I think I am going to learn to use my Babylock3-407 my cousin gave to me yesterday. Maybe make something new for my new grandbaby, Mary-Jayne!

    Help Please! I would appreciate any tips and advice on using invisible thread to free motion fused applique leaf shapes to quilt border. Do it put the invisible thread into the bobbin also? Any advice on setting tension would be helpful too. Thanks in advance!

    I would have never dreamed I would be hand quilting and enjoying ...

    OK, here goes! When I started quilting (applique) in the early 70s there were no new books, patterns or magazines. Then the Bicentennial hit in 1976 and quilting was hit with a jolt that started the explosion we are still enjoying today. The early applique was very simple and rather general in design ...
