Thank you, and i apologize if this isn't where I was supposed to post my question. Have a good day!
Does anyone know where I can get the pattern for the Yellow Brick Road. I seen it on the Missouri Quilting . I think it is just different sizes.Im one that needs to see a pattern. Crazy me
Just purchased my Martelli rotary cutter on 11/9/2012. Worked well until today when the blade cover would not pop open. Rolled it along my $139 Martelli cutting board as directed in the instructions and the blue on my board smeared! The only way I could get the blade exposed was to mannually open it. I took the blade out, and the whole inside of the cutter is gunked up with black stuff which is probably what made it stick, not open and damage my board. What a disappointment in a very expensive

I have a Viking machine and I attached the walking foot, but when using it with my fabric the thread keeps breaking. Anybody know what is causing this thread break? I have used this foot before so I know that it works. It's been a while since I used it and I don't have the packaging information. I have re-thread the machine many times.

It really isn't wrinkley like it looks.
Here is the recipe I told many about in chat room back before Thanksgiving. I made bread loafs, cinnamon rolls and hot rolls with this dough and love it! Never had anyone not like it either!
We started using our Tin Lizzie a few months ago. We practiced on whole cloth and were ready to do a real quilt top. When we started quilting on the pieced top, the machine would resist and drag when the machine crossed the corner seams. Everything I have read about machine quilting says to stay relaxed and not hold the handles too tightly. When we hit these seams we have to push through them, distorting the pattern. Has anyone else experienced this and, if so, is there a solution?
