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.

  4. 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

    Thanks, as always, for looking!

  8. Sisters Quilt Show 2012

    by , 07-17-2012 at 10:30 AM
    What a beautiful show - at least until the downpour started! My quilting friend and I were on our way to Bend right before it happened.

    We were able to spend the morning looking at beautiful quilts - there was a light breeze so it didn't feel too hot. I have pictures of about 50 quilts that I took.

    I like to take a picture of the label, then a picture of the whole quilt, then any close-ups. Since I have the label I have the story about the quilt and that is almost as ...
  9. fussy cutting when material is not straight

    by , 07-17-2012 at 08:56 AM
    I bought a cupcake quilt kit. There are 8 cupcake blocks to cut.

    But when I put my 7-1/2" square over then they are not straight. The material is katty-cornered. How do I get the material straight so my squares cut out right with a 1/4" seam?

    Any help will be greatly appreicated.
  10. A parcel of triangles and unusual blocks bought from Ebony Love has arrived!

    by , 07-17-2012 at 07:10 AM
    I got a parcel in the post yesterday from Ebony Love (quilt designer) after she decided to offer fabrics from her 'orphans' pile which included lots of triangles, a bag of strips and blocks that she had acquired but no longer had time to use, so now I've got to decide what to do with it all. I love getting scraps from other quilters. On a guild retreat I took everything bar the kitchen sink with enough fabric for a quilt or purses and lots of other options because I'd never been there before and ...
