Does any one have a good use sewing machine for sale that is in exellent condition and that can do also quilting with the attachments, like the walking foot and the extended table. Please let me know.
Can any one give me any ideas what kind of machine to buy that is good and does quilting at the same time, without having to spend a lot of money. I'm looking probably under $500.00.
I'm new at making quilts and i just starting to learn this great artistic field. I have joined a quilting guilt in a church. The extend of my quilts, most likely would be making them for my kids and grandkids. Any imput is greatly appreciated. I'm also open to any of the old singer machines that may be good
I have a second generation child who is coming to visit from Belgium to Alabama in the fall. He's in love with the Toy Story characters and the Cars characters. I found some cool material for the Toy Story theme, and also some wild green/blue material that I can see being used with the pictures from the Toy Story material, but I can't find a pattern for a twin size quilt that will feature the characters and make them look like they're flying through space - or maybe just the highlight of the quilt.

I am considering buying the Innov-is NX-450Q Quilting Machine and wondered if anyone has had experiences good and bad with it. I do not have a lot of money and do not want to make a mistake. Thanks in advance for your advice
Thanks for posting your topper. It give me inspiration!!

We are winding up our retreat here at The Lodge at Douglas Lake. These ladies have come from all over the country and it has been a wonderful week. Even tho it's hot, there's a nice breeze blowing off the lake and it has been so much fun to see the different projects completed. And the food, oh my, the food! Hope all of you ladies are enjoying your quilting today. I don't get to quilt kr post often so this has been a special treat for me.
I have done about 12 quilts for charity so far on my longarm so far this year. I have to admit, I enjoy doing freehand work over pantographs.
I have a group that makes a lot of scrappy pieced hearts for charity and I have been getting pretty good at doing hearts freehand. The one I did today had a lot of stop and starts because the maker of the top had put a sashing between the hearts. I did a wavy line in the sashing across and did some curly q's and hearts along the top and bottom,
