I finished my third step in the Mystery Quilt Train Ride this morning; next clue will be given next Saturday. I'm hopeful that the black fabric I chose will work - it's not as good of quality as the other fabrics and besides that it's from some time back in the late 90's. I decided to try a mystery quilt because some of my quilt club friends have done them in the past at quilt retreat and make them sound like a lot of fun - what they don't always say is that they never finish them - they get started
So I finally joined the Board. I first heard about it through Pintrest, with the hexagon tutorial posted by Eddie.
So here is a little bit about me. Ive been quilting since November 2011 and have completed 4 quilts and a table runner and I have one quilt ready for quilting and 2 tops sitting around waiting patiently for their turn. I am grateful for my friend Jess for turning me on to this new addiction and my hubby for investing in a really great machine! I have been sewing on and off
Hello everyone! I haven't been by in a long time but it's because I have been very busy. I joined in Sept or Oct 2011 and chatted a few times, got the idea for my Skeleton Quilt, then went to Key Largo for Nov and Dec for a concrete job.
After getting back I attended a funeral in Jan and ran into dozens of old friends and told them I was starting to sew boat tops and upholstery. I got a few repair jobs for canvas tops and made a Vinyl top on my old Pfaff 332.
Well I started to get
Good morning all. I am new to the quilt world. I have gotten a small starter kit and a couple of fabric bundles from eBay. I have noticed that a lot of blogs are about fabrics and pricing. Being new to the fabric world where are some good places to get fabric. We have a Joann's here and a Hancock but Hancock does not have a very big selection on the quilt backing. And our Walmart does not sell fabric at all. HELP before I start this hobby
Today I received information regarding my secret pal - I love getting a new name. Brian and I look at the world map and find out where they're at and then look on line to discover a little bit about their home town; it's like getting a small geography lesson later in life. Thank you moderators for hosting all the fun events.

Does anyone know of a pattern for the Bargello - Taj Mahal by Ms Mooney? It is lovely and I sure would like to try it. I must have seen a picture in a magazine, but can't seem to find any info.

Any and all opinions welcome, as I am trying tp make a $500 decision.
I have a Grace Pinnacle frame which I use with the 'domestic' Baby Lock Quilters Pro, which came bundled along with the frame and a Surestitch regulator. So I have never tried to quilt without a stitch regulator.
So the Baby Lock was great for the first year or so as I gained confidence and experience, but now I am ready for a longarm. I don't want to spent 1000s and the Baily machines look like
Does anyone have a page of 2 inch hexagon templates to send me so I can copy/print? I have lots of scraps and decided this would be good way to use them up and travel in car..I can work on them traveling. Thanks! I tried the one gals link and they are too small for me.
