Of course, I also had to empty two closets in the den so that I could move the stuff out of the sewing room closet,

A quilting friend gave me a bundle of 12 fat qt that are from the Sis Boom Happy Land by Free Spirit as a retirement gift. They are all bright and 7 are medium and large florals and the other 5 are stripes---2 kinds, one a repeating rows of about 2" wide stripes with tiny florals in the stripe and the other are about 2"wide stripes with large florals in either side. Any ideas?
I'm thinking a table topper of some kind (my table is round) or maybe a purse?? Thanks for
I always wanted to learn to quilt, so finally did it, but there are so many things I don't understand. I have finished my first quilt but need to quilt the top. What web site is the best for trying to learn? I have no quilting stores in my area to take classes, so I have had to learn everything on-line.
Looking for a good web site to order sewing supplies. I recently went on sewforless.com and they have a great deal on 505 spray adhesive is less than half the price of my local quilt store. Also noticed their Isacord Embroidery Thread is $2 less a spool. Wow a big savings since half of everything I earn goes towards this crazy hobby. Does anybody have any codes to use for this website? Any other ideas for cost saving supplies?
Does anyone know if the Ultimate ll has a stitch regulator available for it or not?
I'd like to make a quilt for our bed in our trailer we go camping in all the time. The colors in the trailer are light brown dark red and gold. Sort of busy fabric, needs to be calm. How would you make the quilt??

I find myself doing a lot of late night sewing, I am not sure if it is good for me or not but I seem to get so much done and when I get into the grove of a project it amazes me that I can actually sew for hours and not even know it is really the next morning and I started late in the afternoon the day before.
The really scary part is when I pick up the phone to call my daughter and then realize it is 3:00 am, good thing I looked at the clock first!
Does anyone else do this?

This was my first attempt. We have learned at the workshop to look at the fabric. You can make beautiful pedals
