  1. Patchwork circle at church

    by , 03-28-2015 at 07:03 AM
    Bonjour fellow quilters!
    My friend and I would like to start a patchwork circle for our church members, which isn't very commonplace here in France. Can anyone give suggestions or a personal experience? How are they organized? Are the blocks/panels inspired by a particular Bible passage discussed while sewing? Are the finished articles displayed in the church, given to charity, sold for offering? Merci!
  2. An older Viking... Need help finding bobbin case and additional bobbins

    by , 03-27-2015 at 07:16 PM
    I'm looking for a bobbin case for this old Viking. I believe it to be an Eaton's (Canadian department store) machine. Does anyone have any information that can help me locate a bobbin case and extra bobbins? Here is a photo of his charming self and a photo from the original manual. The manual says he is a Viking series 825 and his serial number is 679-5115 C2 (the 2 is smaller and inside the C).

    Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

  5. How do you achieve that elegant, yet hand-crafted look?

Someone mentioned the Thimblelady method; her book is called 'Perfect Hand Quilting without Pain' by Liuxin Newman. The method is similar, but uses a thimble that fits down on the finger, and eliminates all of the hand stress associated

  7. Looking for a block pattern

    by , 03-25-2015 at 06:52 PM
    I am looking for an applique block pattern named "Holland Bouquet" from some years back. It is a wooden shoe with the toe on the right side and four tulips with five leaves coming out of the shoe. The magazine page reads "original design by Sandra Pierson". We only have parts of the pattern. I would be very appreciative if someone can share the pattern with me. I am attaching a photo to help.
