  2. About my first offical quilt

    by , 07-19-2012 at 05:35 PM
    I can not believe that I am actually making a quilt for myself to use at re-enactments.
    I went through my stash of fabric from making dresses and seen what fabric that I have left to make a quilt, most pieces were too small to use. I did find some fabric, then I had to get a way to cut the fabric into nice squares. I did buy some squares to add some variety to the squares.

I've emailed JoGoodman, the designer, and she says she wants to post my quilt photo and instructions on her blog. Here's a preview.

  9. Buying a New Janome

    by , 07-18-2012 at 07:21 AM
    I have a Janome MC6600 and need a second machine. I do a lot of free motion embroidery and thread-painting......................which means if I want to just do regular stitching I have to set up the machine. Since I don't have big blocks of time to spend sewing, I hate to give up the time setting up the machine for the different sewing I do.......................

    I definitely want another Janome. This will be my last machine for awhile and will give me a total of 3 machines......... ...

I decided to practice again this evening before I put a real quilt top on the frame and now, the machine will not sew. It runs and I can pull
