  1. Where am I going wrong?

    by , 08-05-2012 at 09:04 AM
    Hello All,
    HELP!
    I am onto my 2nd quilt and I'm having difficulties getting my blocks and triangles to line/match up. I have been, I thought, extra carefull in the cutting of all my pieces but, when it comes to placing all the pieces together there is always something off kelter and doesn't fit correctly.
    I have looked at the pictures that have been posted and I'm very impressed and would love to make things that look as good as these.
    Can anyone give me any tips ...

  3. Make a sewing machine cover

    by , 08-05-2012 at 02:36 AM
    I really enjoy making sewing machine covers. They are fun, don't need a lot of fabric, and make great gifts, too.

    I posted pics and instructions in a web album. I'd post them all here, but the QB website has been giving me fits the last few days. So, I hope the link to my Picasa album works. Here it is:

  4. DISCUSSION QUESTION in POST #121

    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

  10. 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.
