Hi, several folks have asked me to teach a beginner quilt class (machine piecing and quilting). I would love to have some suggestions as to how to plan about four sessions for beginners.
I am relatively new to quilting. Have been making gifts the past year and have yet to name and label the quilt. Where can I learn to make the labels? I've seen some very interesting ones but haven't a clue how to do this.
I am looking to purchase a machine so I can free motion quilt large quilts. Any one using or have used a PQ1500s? I would really appreciate the good and bad Or any other machine suggestions. This machine is in my price range. Have a great day! and thanks.

I want to create a 3.5 inch "finished" using strip piecing to make diamond blocks. See attachment. My question is what size do I cut the dark center strip and what size do I cut the 2 light strips so I come up with a 3.5 inch block strip to use in a border instead of the size made using the instructions i found online. You can send private msg if you wold like.

We have ladies who do red work by hand, and embroider quilt blocks! It is going stong here in MO! :lol: :lol: :lol:

You don't have that seam when you use the traditional method with Y seams. I don't know what I hate more -- the extra seam, or making Y seams!!!
