  2. Jewelbox Quilt for IHN Charity

    by , 05-27-2014 at 04:27 PM (Chat Room Challenges)
    Hello all,

    we are doing another one of our chat room group quilts. This time we thought donating to a charity would be fun! Playswithcolor participates in a charity called IHN. It is an interfaith charity that helps homeless families. There are several churches who participate. They basically provide food (3 meals) and a safe place to sleep for 13 families to help them get back on their feet.

    They have a yearly fundraiser in October. So it would be great if we can donate ...

    Lots of Canadian quilters? How's weather in your area, and what are you working on? Here MB is humid 25C with 5C overnight. Managed to get some flowers planted in this difficult soil and potatoes. Hope your summer is a great one. Started cutting up some tumbler blocks for a ABC donation quilt to our guilds.
  4. My mini tablerunner in progress

    by , 05-25-2014 at 08:36 PM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    I'm going to try to keep up with my blogs a bit better I hope.
    Thought I'd share a pic of my mini tablerunner I'm working on. I got the top finished last night and now I just need to back it and quilt it. I use the birthing method since I don't like to use binding. It does make it a bit harder to quilt it down tho. I only know how to do STID so it will be fine I'm sure.

    This tablerunner unfinished measures 9" by 17" so will probably finish at 8 1/2" x 16 1/2" ...
  5. Singer 301a found at garage sale

    by , 05-25-2014 at 04:46 PM
    Hi - I'm new to quilting as well as this forum though I have done garment sewing since I was 10 and in 4H. I'm looking forward to following some great discussions.

    So, here's my story.... On Friday, I went to a garage sale held on back road in the heart of the Adirondack Mts. There was an old sewing machine for sale, but since I already have several old sewing machines, I decided to pass. It haunted me all day on Saturday, and this morning I thought I should google the model ...

  7. Bernina--New or used? Mechanical or Computerized?

    by , 05-25-2014 at 10:04 AM (Bernina…NEW OR USED?)
    First post is one for advice on a new machine. Just attended a landscape quilting class in BC with my old Elna Air and found it doesn't seem to be good enough anymore. I've started to look at the Berninas and have been mired down with the choices. My friend LOVES her older 930 mechanical, and I see they're still available, but have also been looking at the newer computerized ones (used). Also was shown the 350SE new at a shop nearby ($1599 includes walking foot, class to learn, 1st service next ...

Well, I just can't figure out where I'm going wrong. My squares are turning out to be longer than wide and I can't sew them together edge to edge. I am trying to sew them together so that one square has the strips vertically
