  1. Quilting frame inquiry

    by , 07-20-2013 at 07:57 AM
    Hi all, while I have been a lurker up until now I know that you all can help me figure this out.
    I purchased a "floor model" 5 foot quilting frame from a local Bernina dealer and really feel like I have been ripped off. I asked the dealer about the ease of setting up and was told that it was just a matter of putting in 4 screws on either side, that it came in 2 flat boxes that would store under the bed and the footprint was approx. 5'x4'. I was asked to wait until it could be ...

    Instead of bread - make oppsie bread instead YUMMMMM

  3. Dear Jane quilt

    by , 07-19-2013 at 04:09 PM
    Anyone out there stupid like me and doing the Dear Jane blocks? A good friend talked me into doing this and now she isn't even working on it and I am on row C. I doubt these blocks will ever get finished in my life time. I only hope my kids will see all the work I have put into these tiny blocks and maybe one of my daughter-in laws will finish them or one of my quilting friends will inherit them and they will not end up in the trash. I have a big pile of fabrics and keep getting more for this ...

Better yet, does anyone have one they'd like to sell? Thank you.

  6. Reverse appliqué blocks

    by , 07-17-2013 at 05:39 AM
    I am trying to learn to appliqué. And thought I would try to to do a couple of simple designs. Maybe a butterfly? Or flower? Since I have never appliquéd I would like a big block that I could maybe turn into a baby quilt.

    Any suggestions?

  8. Brother Charger 441- how to thread

    by , 07-16-2013 at 03:45 PM
    I was recently given this machine as a gift, but it came with no instruction manual. This is my first machine, and my first project is a block quilt. Since there is minimal information online, I thought I would post the very basic things I've come gotten worked out. I'll start with how to thread the machine. There are pictures for each step.

    1)Put the thread on one of the posts, unwinding to the left and behind. (It may not matter if it is to the left and in front, but I haven't ...

  9. A modern wedding quilt

    by , 07-16-2013 at 01:20 PM
    Hi, I am looking for a pattern that is mostly white, but has some very bright colors, like a bright jelly roll in it. I saw a trip around the world done with mostly whites, but with some really fun bright kaffe fassett type colors. Does anyone know of a pattern like this? It is for my niece's wedding. She is painting her walls cobalt blue. Thanks
