I made a table runner and the three center squares are a little big and look wrinkled when I lay it out. Do you think if I quilted an x in the block it would help? I am at a loss as to how to fix this. nancyjean59

My husband arranged the colors on the outside of the hexagon and I did the diamonds.
FYI: I had to make it smaller but did not want to exclude any logs.I felt that it took away from the design. Instead I cut the strips ⅛" narrower than specified and sewed the seams a full ¼".

I'm thinking of buying a Husqvarna Tribute 140C, it's a demo model and I have 2 days to make up my mind (returning home from visiting my daughter). I'm using a 1974 Singer Futura which is now on it last leg. Does anyone use this machine or have any comments on this machine....thanks
I'm trying to find a pattern for the New Orleans Puzzle table top center piece. Can anyone direct me in the right direction.

Help! When I am using the fancy stitches, it works fine for a while, then they start to get long. Anybody else have this problem and do you have a solution.

Suzanne's tute is excellent and easy to follow. There are several ways to put the blocks together if you don't like pinwheels.
I have a hand made king size chapel window quilt that my grandma made. Any tips on where I can sell it and for how much?
