I love quilting on minki... It is just so soft and cuddly. I made this crib size quilt for a new grandson on the way... Had fun using a new template , (curved) and just playing around as I quilted...

The patches are then machine sewed in rows and then the rows are joined and it goes very fast. I don't want to do that either.
Then there is the English paper piecing by hand and that's not going to happen. And so I did this. I did two

Draw diagonal lines through the grid so that each square has ONE diagonal line in it.
Sew 1'4" away from EACH side of EACH diagonal line.
Press the fat quarters after sewing.
Cut apart on EVERY DRAWN LINE.
Square up each HST.

I bought all they had, and will use it up this way.
I save my scraps but sometimes the scraps are really in strange shapes and sizes
What machines have an automatic reverse that doesn't have to be held down while stitching?
Hi all, while I have been a lurker up until now I know that you all can help me figure this out.
I purchased a "floor model" 5 foot quilting frame from a local Bernina dealer and really feel like I have been ripped off.

I was asked to wait until it could be

Anyone out there stupid like me and doing the Dear Jane blocks? A good friend talked me into doing this and now she isn't even working on it and I am on row C. I doubt these blocks will ever get finished in my life time. I only hope my kids will see all the work I have put into these tiny blocks and maybe one of my daughter-in laws will finish them or one of my quilting friends will inherit them and they will not end up in the trash. I have a big pile of fabrics and keep getting more for this

I would like to find the pattern for her if I could so that she can actually learn to go by the patterns and learn as she works. Does anyone know the name and where I could find it? Better yet, does anyone have one they'd like to sell? Thank you.
