  1. Still shopping around

    by , 07-23-2013 at 11:28 AM
    I have a BabyLock Quest Plus which I have been using on my quilt frame. I love it for this purpose as it has a deep throat, speed control and one touch start/stop. I am wanting to purchase a different machine to use on my quilt frame as I simply LOVE to sew with my BabyLock. Anyone have any good suggestions?

    My little dye cottage is almost finished, still have to hook up sink and water, and a bit of mud for drywall under the upper windows. But that did not stop me from moving in and Sat. the girls and I did some fabric painting. was so nice in there with the air on as was in the mid 90's here that day. Another couple of weeks every thing should be done and I can start dyeing. Called Dharma and placed a nice order of PFD fabric, I think I ordered 6 bolts. 25 yards each, of 60"wide fabric, that should ...

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.

  8. Cash register tape scrappy quilt...left the paper on, quilted and then washed...

    I found the thinner tape here in Poland but then when perusing a Five and Dime type store in downtown Newton, KS, in May when we were in the states, came across some almost 4" wide register tape--no doubt it fits an antique machine that is no longer in usage anymore. 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

  10. Quilting frame inquiry

    by , 07-20-2013 at 07:57 AM
    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 asked the dealer about the ease of setting up and was told that it was just a matter of putting in 4 screws on either side, that it came in 2 flat boxes that would store under the bed and the footprint was approx. 5'x4'. I was asked to wait until it could be ...
