I drew up a set of diagrams for you:

So, does W&N usually give that crinkly/used look after washings??
What batting do you use in wallhangings?
Thank you for your ideas.
I am looking for an old Glennen Omni Stitch machine. I have one and just about wore it out. sure could use another one. If anyone has any idea where I might find one would be greatly appreciated. I realize they are very old and chances of getting one are slim. I just thought I would give it a try. thanks for listening. Carol

[QUOTE=HillCountryGal;6585397]Do you have a "quilting friend"? Maybe y'all could partner and finish one or two together. Like you, I have more fun thinking up and creating the quilt top. But I figure this is suppose to be fun.
One lady in our quilting group reports at least 12 tops that need finishing. She laughed the other day and said, "When I die someone will have to finish them!" [/QUOTE
I hope she finishes the quilts so someone in the
Just treated myself to a W & G's machine this morning that I found at a local estate sale. Dated it to be made around 1883. Does anyone have any advice on what to use to clean and polish it so I don't ruin the existing finish? Some minor rust and grime on all the exposed metal needs to be worked on.
Anyone else not getting their newsletters? Haven't gotten anything for a few days now and not in junk mail either.

My mother in law passed away and left at lease 20 projects that need to be finished ( so now I am teaching myself to quilt and wishing I had sat at her feet for the last 30 years) and out of 40 boxes of material and patterns....I can't find it. I have a couple of templates that she made but the too are
Is there anyway I can get the Quilt Sew Clever to work on the Pfaff grand quilter 1200?
I've been away awhile and don't get online much here anymore. I know that I should, but, as we all know....Life has a way of interrupting lots of things. Oh well.
I have another DGS that will be a year old the end of March. (The same day as our DGD) That makes four now...3 boys and one girl.
I no longer am able to work, but still putter with quilting so I guess that is good.
As I am sure that others feel the same way...I am ready for spring and nice
