    I told her I would quilt it for her, took me 2 days to do all the stitch in the ditch and 8 days to complete the top. The quilting was all done freehand on my Pfaff Expressions 3.0 sewing machine.

  3. Two colors - two 4-patches

    Determine the size of finished block you want, then add 1/2" to allow for the 1/4" seams. In my case, I used 4-1/2" blocks that resulted in two 4" 4-patches.

    First step: Select two contrasting fabrics, place right sides together, then

  4. Quilting Looms for Machine Quilting

    Yesterday I read where there are looms you can purchase that your sewing machine is able to ride down tracks in order to quilt your piece. Does anyone have any experience with any of these? Would you recommend the one you have? Thanks!
  5. Any pointers on how to sew wavy line quilts?

    by , 05-14-2013 at 10:06 AM
    I am thinking of using some blues and aquas in lines across the across, I think wavy lines would be great, don't know how to cut or sew them, would love to hear your answers and comments.

    Then two baby quilts, the blue I just did simple wavy line quilting, the other is hand quilted SITD, they just need binding.
    Next is a preview of a WIP for #8 - all the blocks are made, just have to finish putting them together.

  9. 12" Kitty in the Window Block - made with a jelly roll!

    If anyone would like to know how to construct this and can't do it quickly from the link, please feel free to PM me! I just made the block on my 30 min lunch break + 15 min break as I worked on puzzling it out. It was friendly to little slips and mistakes, too.
