    I keep mine in an accordion file. I labelled each pocket by type for easy reference. I don't usually cut patterns out of my magazines because I find my tastes change and I like to look at them whenever I need inspiration.

A wonderful way to use scraps to make a beautiful quilt! I love her corner stones and sashings. This one is certainly one I want to make for myself

  4. Bernina Virtuosa 153

    by , 03-04-2014 at 03:02 PM
    My mother has finally given up sewing (at 86) and would like me to sell her Bernina. It has many accessories, case, manual, etc. Any idea how much I should be asking? It must be 5-6 years old by now, maybe more.

  6. Dreaming of project #2

    by , 03-02-2014 at 03:16 AM
    My first quilt was so fast and easy I feel like I can learn by taking it to the next level, so I'm planning on using the same techniques with smaller squares and a twin sized quilt. I've been drooling over quilts with color fades since the early 90s and with my art background and the current ombré trend I figured now would be a good time to play with that.

    I did some math and determined that 5 inch squares are the most cost effective option if I use 1/2 yard increments. For twin sized ...

  8. DAQ Quilter

    by , 03-01-2014 at 05:27 AM
    I have a Design-A-Quilter and I am not sure how old it is. I was wondering if anyone knows if I can get parts for it. I know the place where they made these are no longer in business but I was hoping someone could help me. I have had it for several years and the only thing I have had to replace is the motor that runs the machine and that was not easy. I am looking for some other parts that need to be replaced. I hope someone out there can help me get what I need because I can not afford a new ...

    by , 02-28-2014 at 02:14 PM
    I thought I had this in here, but guess not. He's been after me all the time, wants all my quilts. He put dubs on these blocks and this is what he got.
