Next time I must start with buying the key fabric. I started with buying what was on clearance and fit my concept and I realized that I still needed a specific leaf fabric, but now I needed it in a certain shade of green to make the color blend smoothly.
So after a frustrating trip two two fabric stores that claim to be the biggest in the nation I realized I was hunting for a fabric that didn't exist and bought 3 cuts that blended the colors and while neither was perfect all three together
Just joined so I'm new to this! Does anyone have any idea if I can use my little gracie 2 frame with an artistic 18 longarm? I can't find much about compatible frames for this machine.

They advertise it as 50/3 double-mercerized extra-long staple cotton, but the price seems too good to be true. I'm very, very new to quilting and appreciate any information you can provide. Thanks!

I am wondering where I can find desert scene patterns? I was at the Palm Springs quilt show and there was a wall hanging called "Through the Canyon". Any suggestions would be appreciated thanks
The Thimbleberries Lakeside and Lodge Big Club Quilt was offered in 2008. I subscribed at a local quilting store and had to stop before I was done. I kept going to the store to pick up each month's supplies but apparently, I missed the last month. Now, years later, I am just finishing Part 11 of the quilt and realized that I do not have the part 12 instructions. And the quilt store is closed!
Is there anyone out there that has those part 12 instructions?
Not a quilt but quilted items. These potholders are about 10" in diameter. The have quilting cotton on the outside and two layers of flannel and one layer of Insulbrite on the inside.
This baby quilt was created for a co-worker of my husband. It is a pinwheel pattern made with charm (5") squares. It is quilting cotton, top and back, with fleece batting.
