Hi Charismah! I have been trying to contact you thru the Board, and am SOOOO frustrated!! Spent nearly 2 hours deleting PM's in the inbox and out box, and still won't let me send! I just found out the 500 limit messages may mean the inbox and outbox COMBINED, so I still have a couple hundred PM's to delete! Anyway, I wanted to know how my quilt was coming-if you have had a chance to quilt it yet. I was on the live chat and someone mentioned you may need to clean out your mailbox as well in

I am so new to this that I tried to post a blog a few minutes ago but don't know where it went. It's probably floating around in ??? I do have a question. I have seen so many BEAUTIFULLY quilted pieces but do not know how to obtain those same results on my quilts. I own a Viking Diamond with a 14 inch throat but cannot see where I am going to create those scrolls, flowers, leaves or whatever. I can free motion meander pretty well though. What is the secret to the other quilting techniques?

It's a little applique iron for pressing. It's made by "Clover" and available at Joanne Fabrics. It has high and low settings, and a very convenient.
Not sure if I'm doing this right so this is a test hope it works never blogged before..I did change my avatar...I think...
I love Veteran's Day. It's a great day to thank men and women for serving their country. I was in the Air Force many years ago and althought I didn't retire from the service, I will always remember my Air Force experience as a positive time in my life.
I will spend Veteran's Day quietly. I plan to do some housework, walk the dog, sew a little and take my new to me 301 Singer to the sewing machine doctor and leave her for a tune up and new cords.
DO ANY OF YOU HAVE THIS MACHINE, IF SO WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT AND THE WAY IT QUILTS?
Has anyone every heard of or have an Imperial Diamond Pattern. My daughter is looking for one. Can't find anything on the web or in any of my books.

I use good quality serging thread which creates less bunk and the result is a perfect 1/4" seam with the Bernina #57 foot. However, when I use regular 50 weight thread I use a scant 1/4" which is accomplished by moving the needle one notch to the right
