  1. tin lizzie - skipping stitches

    by , 02-04-2013 at 08:50 PM
    I've been quilting on my tin lizzie for a bit now without too many problems until last night. It decided to start skipping stitches. I've changed the needle, rethreaded,cleaned but makes no difference. Any ideas?

    I designed this quilt for my nephew who loves music. He and I went to see Mamma Mia together so the notes are from the song "Honey, Honey" I used a pantograph to fmq the quilt in gold. This is only my fourth quilt that I've made and my first to fmq on the whole thing. I'm still learning how

I appliqued all of the center blocks for the super hero logos.

  5. Fiskar 24" rotary ruler

    by , 02-03-2013 at 05:23 PM
    I have been trying to find one of these. I tried one the other day at a friends house. I must really be behind on times I didn't know they made stuff like this. I couldn't believe there was a ruler with a rotary cutter on them. I have looked and no where to be found. Any one know where I can find this.
  6. blew out my knee and can't get to the sewing room!

    by , 02-03-2013 at 02:43 PM
    I'm totally bummed right now! Yesterday I blew out my knee walking out of the LQS(at least this was AFTER a wonderful lunch with friends and a quick peak of some gorgeous materials) and while I went back to the Guild "advanced" class to do my first harder block, I spent 4 hr. at ER last night. Sat night at the ER of a trauma hospital gave my DH tons of material for his novels, but I was bored silly! So now I'm in a leg immobilizer and on crutches (pretty shakey too) and can't get up ...
  7. 1930s Friendship Quilt Blocks

    by , 02-03-2013 at 02:36 PM
    I have 14 quilt blocks with the name of the quilter embroidered on it. Based on research through, I think the blocks were made between 1935 and 1945 by ladies living in a rural town called Hygiene, Colorado (near Boulder). Most blocks were hand sewn while a few were sewn by machine. I would appreciate any advice on how to turn the blocks into the friendship quilt it should be. I'm fairly sure most of the designs use feed/flour sack material with muslin backgrounds. Some pieces need ...

  9. dish cloths

    by , 02-02-2013 at 07:03 PM
    I am new to the quilting board but came across an article or thread from January 28, okay so I'm behind the times, anyway and the discussion was about crocheted dish clothes. I am not a great crochet person but does anyone have the pattern for these?

    I sit with my husband who is disabled and watch TV with him but that is something I could do when I don't have any quilt projects going on.

    I have been quilting for about 5 or 6 years and just love this site. Have learned ...
  10. Need some advice

    by , 02-02-2013 at 10:28 AM
    I'm using my HP inkjet printer to print on cotton for purpose of making a picture quilt. The pictures are coming out fine but I'm wondering if there is a fixative I should be using on the pictures? I ironed my fabric to freezer paper and then fed it through my printer. Surely will appreciate your advice. Thanks so much
