I have made her 4 quilts and all have purple as the main fabric. I chose a focus fabric and then picked fabrics to complement the colors. I had a wonderful time making this quilt and can't wait to give it to

    Does it need a new needle? That is usually the quickest/easiest/cheapest fix.
    Change the needle... some times we hit pins or sometimes people pull the material through the machine and the needle bends. Sometimes needles get dull? When was the last time it was changed?

    Look at your upper thread. Is it catching on the little notch on the spool?
    Turn it over and see if that helps...

    Some times the wrong thread can be a

  4. 64 hexes

    by , 08-16-2012 at 03:16 AM
    I managed to make 64 folded hexagons on my trip. It's surprising how much I got done in the car and how short the trip seemed. I'm going to make folded squares on my flight to the UK since I will have seven hours, plus waiting time at airports, to fill with something interesting. Sometimes I knit socks but I'm so interested in folded fabric right now that I'm going to have a kit of standby - a grab-and-go-kit - to fill waiting times at the dentist, at the doctor's - anywhere. and then I will make ...

  8. Handcrafting on the road

    by , 08-15-2012 at 03:28 AM
    I'm off to the capital today to keep my husband company on a business trip so I'll be taking hand sewing to keep me happy for the two or three hours he will be in deep discussion with his contacts.
    I've discovered that the library has the comfiest leather couch adjacent to the craft section and I can sit there and happily make fabric origami shapes to use in new projects. If the sun shines there's a picnic table outside that is perfect or I could crank up the GPS and go exploring. We were ...

  10. Almost finished

    by , 08-14-2012 at 02:49 PM
    Well, I only have a few more rows to do to finish up my quilt. I am not understanding why my second set of 12 x 24s are not matching up. I stopped trying to figure it out and I had just cut off the extra. I then take the quilt outside to put the two sections together and the second section was one block too small! I counted them out and there were 24 squares, so I just added another square and it is just a little bigger than the first section. I am so puzzled by this.
    So I am just moving on ...
