    I used a tutorial found here: http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2...vin-on-up.html
    It was a quick and easy assembly. I quilted it on my Juki using my walking foot to create some straight line

  3. PFAFF Questions

    by , 05-20-2012 at 07:58 PM
    My son came into a PFAFF 332-6. I have been using a 38 year old Montgomery Wards sewing machine and found the PFAFF to be a beautiful piece of engineering.

    Since it is a 1950's model, does anyone have a breakdown of the various PFAFF's (built in Germany) model numbers and features, starting wtih the 332?
    What is the difference between the Hobby and Tipmatic machines?

    Is there some definitive source to find answers to these and other questions?

  4. Rummage sale find

    by , 05-20-2012 at 06:19 AM
    Yesterday my daughter and I traveled to Blooming Prairie for their city wide rummage sale event - not looking for anything in particular. I found an old Corning perculator coffee pot for a dollar and just had to bring it home - deal of the day.

    I'm sitting here this morning checking out posts on QB and enjoying a cup of fresh perc'd coffee - yummo - far better than the fresh drip.

  6. Quilting with 50wt thread

    I have begun using primarily wool batting because I like the almost trapunto look it gives when the background is densely quilted. I am wondering if a thinner thread or a thicker thread will help to emphasize that effect.

    I have seen several dessert and/or cake recipes that use it.
    I had to google it. Found out it's dulce de leche. I guess "danger pudding"
    would be an appropriate name if you did it the dangerous way.

    Personally, I enjoy condensed milk on its own...yum. LOL
    Haven't had it in years.

  8. Dear Jane - C's the day! C1, C2, C3

    For that one I cut 2" strips out of my background and focus fabrics and sewed about 24" together. I then cut these joined strips into 2" sections for the 4-patch and the rectangles that join them. It was a simple matter to sew 2 of the rectangles into the center square, sew (2) 4-patch

  9. braided rugs

With the toothbrush rug, all you are doing is tying knots and working in the shape you want practically right away.
