    Regarding the question about the block already quilted and would you use it in a quilt and cut it down or how would you solve the problem. I might make some smaller blocks to fill in so the other blocks would come out the same size as the larger block. Or cut the larger block down and stitch around the edge after it is cut. A third way would be to add borders to the smaller blocks so they were the same size as the bigger block.

    SEW Let's get started.

    For this method with the understanding you are using all 1/4" seams. Your TOP sashing strip will be 1 inch wide and the length will be the same as your block length.

    EXAMPLE: Ssnare is using 9 inch top blocks. Now as long as no wonkiness happened along the way that required her to trim her blocks under the 9 X 9 squares; the width

    I decided to use a Cross-Hatching design on my DP9. I used a walker foot for this project because the walker foot is great for quilting long straight lines and geometrical angles. I have also used the walker foot for Echo quilting and making wavy lines. The walker foot is a machine guided attachment with the feed dogs always up to my knowledge. If your design requires more free motion quilting then you will most likely want

  7. Toile embroidered blocks

    by , 08-03-2012 at 10:23 AM
    I made 20 of these today. I'm going to use them as the center blocks of a pineapple quilt for me.
    They were fun to do.
    Now, I must get started on cutting pieces for the rest of the quilt. I'm going to use a Kansas Troubles jelly roll.
    Hope to get all the pieces cut over the weekend.

    My boss has asked me to do some research and find out some information on an old Manhattan sewing machine she has in a treadle sewing cabinet. It looks just like the one pictured here: http://howdyblogs.blogspot.com/2009/...her-stash.html

    She is looking to sell hers, but I can't seem to find much information on this particular machine. Any information would be gratefully appreciated!
  9. I am downsizing

    by , 08-03-2012 at 08:27 AM
    Yesterday,I was reading about one of our members that is moving and is trying to downsize.
    After reading all those that responded saying that downsizing was the best thing that ever happened to them, I went right to my sewing room and started cleaning.

    I threw out lots of things, had 3 bags for charity, took pics of items and listed them on our local buy and sell.
    I dusted and cleaned as I went.
    I put aside a LOT of smaller fabric pieces to be cut into squares/rectangles ...
