  1. New user of Inspira Frame

    A friend gave me the frame and I put my Juki 2010Q on it - have been quilting away with no problems as long as I use good quality cotton or polyester thread.

    One question - the machine stutters in the middle where the bars join. Does anyone know why? The table rolls smoothly without jerks across the bars, it only stutters when I am quilting.

    Now for my questions!

    Did it really just take you one month to make this quilt?

    When you say your diamonds are 2.25 in length, I'm not sure what you mean. The diamonds in the center are 2.25 in rectangular length and then the 60 angle is cut? What is the width of the strip that you cut the diamonds from? Does it include .25

I used almost EVERY inch of those 11 pieces plus the neutrals I bought when I started the quilt. The finished top is 104 x 104. Ready to go to my quilter. Can't

    I watched the movie Let it Snow on Hallmark and loved the quilt on the wall. Does anyone know what the pattern is or where I can find it?

  6. Christmas Log Cabin

    Another member of the forum made these log cabin blocks--I just assembled them and finished the quilt. It was given as a comfort quilt to a woman going through treatment for breast cancer.

  9. looking for a quilt pattern with fussy cut cardinals.

    by , 11-19-2014 at 05:23 PM
    Hi! I'm looking for a pattern that I think was in love of quilting. Bought the fabric to make it, didn't get to it last year and put it away. Now ready to do it for my Mom's best friend but I seem to have given away that magazine. It was squares with cardinals in the middle and a dark green border I think. It had sashing between the blocks and the fabrics where definitely from a Christmas line. I thought the magazine was from last year but maybe it was the year prior. Does this ring a bell for anyone? ...

  10. Molas

    by , 11-19-2014 at 10:15 AM
    The mola in my avatar is a very traditional design, incorporating geometric shapes and animals and using a multitude of colours. It was made by a Guna woman. I have a photo of her below, with some of her other work hanging in the background. If you look closely you will see that she has a mola sewn into her top, again, very typical dress of the Guna ladies.

    In the photo, the molas hanging on the left hand side are 'touristic' molas - made to appeal to the tourists, the colours, ...
