We will not get central A/C because we feel we would run up a steep utility bill. Instead we have a couple of window a/c units in the bedrooms.

  2. International Patriotic Challenge

    [QUOTE=peggymunday;5149581]Can it be projects that have been previously completed? This is a wallhanging that was requested by a friend for a new family member that hailed from Canada. A blending of American and Canadian. They were thrilled with the result. I tried to stay to scale on placements for each flag, and had to make patterns for the stars (they were actually painted and then outline stitched) and the maple leaf (drawn freehand on a folded paper, then unfolded to have a symmetrical ...

  3. Iron on fleece for quilting

    by , 09-11-2013 at 10:48 AM
    I am so new to this. I've made several quilt tops and table runners. I've made a Halloween table runner for my daughter in law and I want to quilt it very simple my standard sewing machine. I've tried 606 spray adhesive to sandwich the quilt with VERY poor results. Now I'm thinking about using iron on fleece as my inner batting. Making tops of so easy but such a big dilemma when putting it all together. It's a simple table runner. Thank you for any easy suggestions.

SO glad I had most of the blocks done, and didn't have enough of the background fabric, but got lucky and found a near-full bolt at Joann's, so bought it all and glad I did. I used just about every last drop of it! The quilt measures

  8. 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
