Made one for my sister, myself,my daughter, my niece, and our sister who lives in NM. Thanks for looking.

  4. finally getting time on the longarm--now if I knew more about what I was doing!

    by , 09-07-2013 at 06:57 PM
    I bought a used Gammill in mid-April--but April though mid-June were so busy with the school year ending and settling my Mom's estate, that my only quilting on it amounted to practice cloths. I retired in mid-June and 2 days later had knee arthroscopy--blah! Standing was tough. By mid-July I was "back in the game" and have done some charity tops and a couple of baby quilts. Put my first "real" bed size quilt on yesterday and started my custom quilting today. Dang--I wish ...

But lately when I get to the bottom, it is all wavey, like 2-3inches worth of waves.

    I know the top is squared, somehow in the process of basting it, I am either stretching it too much or letting it get "taken in" too much. I just cant

    I think it turned out lovely. I added the bow-tie border...that was so much fun!
    I love this board because of the relationships I have formed. Michael and I have met in person several times even though we live thousands of miles apart. He and I are like long lost brother and sister...I even went on vacation with him (and

  8. Eq7 - ?

    by , 09-07-2013 at 04:51 AM
    Good morning, I have been away for way too long. Its that working thing. I have question, can anyone give me some feed back on this EQ7 or any other software. My birthday is coming and my boys want to get this mom something. I was thinking I would love to have this software, but I keep reading how this software is not easy to use. I have only seen it at the quilt shop and not been able to play with it my self. My son thinks there should be a better and newer software- more user friendly. ...

  9. Spray Starch?

Add 1 cup boiling water and stir well then add 1 cup cool water and stir well. Pour into a spritzer bottle and there you go! Two cups of medium starch.

    For light starch, make it with less corn starch, for heavy starch, add up to a tablespoon.

He drives a blue and gray Ford Tractor. He started our family farm in 1964 and loves the farm so much that the 'farm' theme is the only way for me to go with this quilt. ANYbody out there got any fabric with the blue/gray or white Ford Tractor????
